Could you be more specific, in what circumstances does work better, and not ?

Well it's happened after i switched to Kotlin . The code completion is very slow , often freezes and while i am typing. Overall the performance really is slow. Also the Canary Version 8 which i am using to work with Compose has more issues, autocomplete does not work at all for many cases and is more slow with showing code completion for compose related code, preview is also really slow. Installing on device is wayyyyy faster than time taken by preview to Show Composable.

Lenovo G50-80, i5 processor, 8Gb ram. 500Gb HDD
Also one more issue i forgot to mention. Many times what happens is the editor goes dead like does not recognize the code written ,it appears like code written in a text file, the color schemes get lost and remain like that for few seconds. Also during this time it does not show error even if i write wrong code. I already saw a bug filed for this in issue tracker and starred the issue https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/181209073
