Brand new phone on Thursday. This thing is so laggy. I cleared system cache. Even turned adaptive display off. Still lags. I'm fact I've never had a new phone do this. How can the flagship phone of Samsung lag this horribly.

Thank you so much! That was the problem. Now to reload the apps that weren't actually causing the problem.

What do you mean by laggy? If it's a new phone, and you're still setting things up, it's normal for it to work harder, get warmer, or even feel slower at times, but once it all settles, it should be fine. Also, not every S21 Ultra is the same. Snapdragon or Exynos?

slow transitioning, apps opening slowly (taking a second). I've been in this game for sometime, I know new phones take a couple of days to smooth out. but nothing like this. I've switched the display from adaptive to 60hz, phone still acts the same.

so its not stuttering, but slow animations and not smooth?

try enable developer's option ( settings - about - software info - tap build number 7 times)

go back 2 times, 

developers option -> window animation scale off, transition animation scale off, animator duration scale off

I understand how to do that. question is why should I have to do that to a $1400 phone i just bought?

@gadget069 the answer is, you shouldn't have to. Beside the lag, or stutter, are you noticing any other issues or concerns?
