I have the same issue. I'm on an iPhone 8 Plus -- everything else on my phone is fast and snappy, but Evernote keeps freezing with major delays from the search or favorites screen trying to get into notes. It's becoming unusable and I've tried everything from restarting the app, restarting the phone and reinstalling the app. Once I DO get into a note it seems to work fine and is very responsive. This has been going on for over a year -- super frustrating!
Same problem for me -- Evernote on OSX and using Chrome/GMail. WTF Evernote! Seems like this has been an issue for over a year...
