I noticed that whenever I am watching a video on youtube or any other application, such as the phones built in video player there seems to be some sort of lag or choppines. It is most noticable when the frames on the video are higher or when the object/s in video are constantly moving or when the camera zooms in. I guess this is a software problem that can be fixed via OTA? I am not experiencing this problem on other devices. Is there anyone else experiencing this problem?

a good example of this is if you do the antutu test on teh app. I was shocked at how choppy the vidoe test was. My nexus 6 (only a quad core) was smooth, yet the super - an Octacore - was choppy and i was very disappointed.i did the test when the phone was brand new and the results came back lower thena the nexus 6 - again i was shocked by this!

Dear Syanide,

What you are showing is a rendered Video.  This is not a simple playback.
In this case the 3D processor does the work.  The GPU of the Nexus is simply stronger.  That does not surprise me because the MTK Soc is a midrange soc.

For your core theory : the number of cores doesn't mean anything.  The Snapdragon 820 - lastest strongest Soc on the android market has only 4 Cores.  Qualcomm decided to quit this "much core" policy and came back to 4 cores.  The old 810 had 8 cores.  ... and Apple has only 2.

I fully understand your point ... but you have well invested your money in the Nexus.  It is a great device, and it takes some time for midrange devices to acquire the performance Level of ex-flagships.
Netherless Umi did a good job for the price Level.
