When I first got this phone, it was amazing. Always had good battery life and lever lagged, I got it last February and it worked perfectly, but I now the phone lags a LOT, anything I do makes it lag, sometimes opening an app has a 1 second delay, opening the quick panel sometimes has a lag spike. I checked my devices performance on 3d mark and it's significantly worse then when I checked when I first got the phone. When I first got it it was over 4k points on wild life extreme, now it's 2300. HALF AS STRONG AS IT USED TO BE. The battery life is also really bad now, will maybe last abt 6 hours on average. I feel like for a high end phone, I shouldn't be having these issues. I hope one ui 6 fixes these issues, if not then I might consider switching back to Google pixel.

@nuclear412 Are you running a Virus Scanner? How much free storage do you have? When is last time you backed up your data and performed a Factory Reset on your device?

Kinda of, I have a app to replace the ugly default Noti pop up. I have apps like that so I'm think they might be the cause, idk

That very well could be the root of the problem right there! It's certainly a very high possibility that it's eating up your phones CPU Processor Cycles. This would cause a severe performance hit!

Wait what could be, the virus blocker or the apps?

My experiences of many years suggests that it could be one or both or a combination of the two. I'd start by removing one of the Virus blockers. Reboot your phone and I bet you will see a much snapper device!
