Layla uses an emerging technology, allowing "ChatGPT-like" chatbots to run on your phone locally without connection to the internet. So it requires quite a lot of resources.
The expected response time for Layla Full on a high end phone such as the S23 Ultra with 12GB RAM is around 1-2 words a second. If you have a high end phone, and you are experiencing slow response times, try one or all of these methods below:
Close all background apps
Turn off "battery optimisation" for Layla: Navigate to Settings > Apps & notifications > Layla > Advanced > Battery > Battery optimization, and then choose "Don't optimize."
Turn on "high performance mode" or "gaming mode" in your phone settings if you have it
Switch to the "Q2" base model. It has roughly the same intelligence as Full Layla but with a performance boost
