By default, S-Voice activates if you press the HOME button twice in quick succession. That is why you see a slight delay before the lockscreen appears after you press it; because the phone is waiting for the second press.
Go to your app drawer and tap on S-Voice. when it opens, press the left soft button for the Settings, and Untick 'Open via the home key'.
You will see the difference when you press the HOME key now.
I do not understand why I should pay $150 for the replacement of my phone when i have an extended coverage on it. Samsung Galaxy S III is not completely a good phone some of them were released with factory defects and the company did not take responsibility. stop buying it. the company has no value added like apple would give to its customers.

I had sent a mail to Samsung India complaining about the various bugs in Android 4.3 update and asking them whether there will be any future updates for GT-I9300 model to fix these issues. They called and told me that GT-I9300 will not be getting 4.4 update but instead of that a new 4.3 update is in works which will resolve all the 4.3 issues like staggering music playback, frequent WiFi disconnection and Battery Drain issues.
Hope this information helps.
Thanks & Regards
