Randomly, animations get choppy, unlock gets slow and battery drains faster

Star I

Hi. Ever since I've had the phone, animations will randomly get choppy and slow, particularly when opening apps, and at the same time the phone will be slow to unlock (a few seconds) and the battery will drain faster. I am on 120hz refresh rate, but it doesn't make a difference what setting I choose. Restarting fixes the problem, which implies I suppose that it could be related to an app, but I have no idea how to verify that without resetting the phone and reinstalling apps one by one. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks.


EDIT: I should mention that I compared running services during times when the problem was or was not occurring, and I couldn't identify any which were only present in one scenario and not the other.



Hey @HoobleDooble,
Can you please share your phone's serial number along with a log file?
Please follow the below steps to enable the built-in log tool (Bug reporter).

1. Open “Calculator APP”

2. Enter “.19595+=”

3. Select the Log type according to the type of issue you want to capture. “General cases” will work for most issues.

4. After your selection the log tool will exit so you can duplicate the issue or wait for it to happen. Try to use the screen recorder to show your issue when possible. If you can't screen record your issue, then please take a screenshot right after the issue has occurred (as a timestamp) so we know where to look in the log.

5. Navigate back to the log tool via calculator and Tap "FINISH AND SHARE".

6. It takes several minutes for the log to generate. You can exit and do other stuff in the meantime. A silent notification will tell you once the process is done. Tap the notification and then the share button to upload the file to Google Drive and share the link with a moderator. Just make sure to change the permission first so that everyone with the link has permission to view it.

Note: When you're no longer planning on logging your device, enter “.09595+=” in the calculator and the log tool will stop as well as deleting all stored log files. Make sure to share via calculator. The files found in internal storage -> asus_log are not the correct files (they are only 1.2kb)
