LG G2 All but useless

I've had this G2 for almost two years and was going to upgrade soon and go back to a Samsung device but my wife dropped her S4 the other day and broke the screen so now she needs the upgrade more than me. So, since I appear to be stuck with this G2 for a while longer, I thought I might see if there's anything I can do to make it somewhat tolerable. The problem with it is that it freezes up constantly, anywhere from a half a second to 8-10 seconds or more. It doesn't matter what I'm doing; texting, e-mail, any apps, changing between apps, simply changing pages, anything. It freezes up constantly. When I'm typing, it will freeze and make me think I didn't type the letter or number, so I will type it again, and again. Then after a few seconds it will suddenly type 3 or 4 of that letter or number. VERY frustrating. I have updated the thing whenever possible (I think the 5.XX "L" update actually made it worse), done multiple factory resets, removed apps, added apps, anything I could think of. I also took it out of the Otterbox for a few days to see if that was causing a problem with the touchscreen. No help at all. I went in and removed or turned off every app except the most essential ones to try and free up RAM. No help. Nothing I have tried has made it any better. In fact, it seems to be getting worse. I really need to make this thing work better for a while longer till I can replace it. Anyone have any suggestions at all?
