there shouldnt be any noticable lag compared to DS3 or XB1 controllers..
atleast i cant see any difference between DS3 and DS4.
connection problem/interference maybe.?
Also what kind of lag are you referring to.? because to me lag is when your controller is slow at registering buttons pressed.
What I noticed tho is that some games do not register 100% analog stick movement and for example camera movement is slow.

Sounds like a TV problem to me.
I 2nd this

All buttons have a 2-3 second delay in registering, but only in certain games.
It bugs the crap out of me.

Do you have a "Game" mode on your TV? Have you ever tried enabling it? It s a special setting on most TVs now-days that reduces the input lag for faster paced/fighting games.

If you find it unacceptably laggy (even if others don't), use it with a USB cable instead of wirelessly. I know the included cable is short, but you can either get a longer micro USB cable or a USB extension cable. Just make sure you plug it into the PS4 and not a wall charger or something, as that's fine for charging, but useless for what you're trying.

I don't know if there's a game mode but I can double check next time. I have it enabled on my upstairs TV.
Secondly, the main TV is only about a year old (in terms of possession, don't know if it's used) so it shouldn't be malfunctioning.
Third, it only happens in Warframe (solo), all Star Wars Classics, Injustice: Gods Among Us UE, and Star Wars Battlefront.
Infamous: Second Son and Black Ops 3 work fine.

Could also be bluetooth or wireless interference.. Is your device near any other wireless devices in your house? I had a similar issue with Black Ops 3 only... turns out I moved my console away from a new wireless router, and that resolved my issues.
