Why is there a delay between pressing the Home key and the home screen on my device?

The delay is there by design to accommodate the Home key double-press start for S Voice. By default you need only quickly press the Home key twice to begin speaking to S Voice.

 

If you'd rather have no delay in returning to the Home screen when pressing the Home key (in exchange for the double-press shortcut for S Voice) you can do so by changing the settings in the S Voice app. To do so, follow these steps:

 

1. From the Home screen touch App Icon Apps.

2. Touch S Voice (you may need to swipe left or right to locate it first).

 

3. Touch the Why is there a delay between pressing the Home key and the home screen on my device? Menu key.

 

4. Touch Why is there a delay between pressing the Home key and the home screen on my device? Settings.

 

5. Touch the check box next to Open via the home key to remove the tick (disabling the Home key double-press start).
