As of the past week~ my phone has been acting weird. It had been pretty flawless up until recently. All of a sudden I started getting this weird stutter/lag where the screen will freeze for a second (while still accepting input) and then all of a sudden "jump" back to the point it would have been at. For instance, if I'm scrolling through a webpage it'll lock up for a second and then skip to the point it would have scrolled to. Likewise, when I'm texting it'll freeze up and then spit out all of the input that it registered while it was stuttering. The odd part is that it doesn't happen 100% of the time. It'll happen in waves, getting really bad and then going a way for a bit.
I've tried these solutions:
- Uninstalling recent apps
- Wiping text messages
- Resetting the phone
- Taking out the SIM card for a couple of minutes then putting it back in
All of these have been to no avail. It is getting increasingly more aggravating to do anything on my phone with the periodic spasms. Anyone else having this issue? Any known fix?

Check your app settings, and find out what's allowed to run in the background. Sounds like a app sucking up resources. I have no problem with my 8x but I control what apps have access and log what apps I d/l and when to trace problems.

Mine stutters every now and then. I don't remember it doing that before portico, but I'm not sure. In my opinion WP8 is a tad buggy. It seems to be the luck of the draw as to whether you have a good phone or a bad one.

This only started happening to my 8X after the most recent update, it's absurdly obnoxious. I have to type slower because it always does it while I'm typing and it will screw up the whole word switching between apps is now a frustrating experience, even unlocking the phone is a chore having to slide three or four times just to unlock the device...
Whatever update rolled out earlier this month seems to be the culprit as my device has been quite fine prior to this. I'm also now getting weird audio feedback from the rear speaker once in awhile that refuses to go away until I've done a reboot.

I've got a Verizon 8X as well and this has been happening to me. I thought it was just due to not having done a factory reset on it since I bought it back at the end of December.
It never happened before the Portico update, but it didn't happen right after, either. Just the last two weeks it seems to have started. I've removed all apps that I've installed since it started as well as turning background tasks off.
Oddly, it seems to have started around the same time my phone started getting the SIM card error. Not sure if there is any relation, though

No issues with my unbranded international 8X. Might be specific to your carrier firmware.*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***

I have the problem, sometimes. I'll have a few days where it is a constant issue, and those are the days where I have the SIM card error (which I never once received until I started having the lag/stuttering two weeks ago). Restarting the phone after the SIM error temporarily fixes the stuttering/lag for me. Other days it'll run fine, and not give me the error all day. I had a week of it happening everyday, and a week of it running perfectly.
The week it started happening, I had just logged a Facebook account into my People Hub. I also linked my Skype to it, as well as linking my Skype and MSN accounts. I went a week without my Facebook account signed in to the Hub, and it hasn't happened since. I just logged it back in, and will see how it goes.

Did you get the update that just came out a day or two ago? It fixed the problem for me.
EDIT: I just noticed the stutter again when texting. It's not terrible, but still happens sometimes. Problem not fixed.

Could be that it's backing up the app list. It occurs periodically in the background. You can check the backup screen and see the last time it occurred. See if it corresponds to the lag times.
