Flushing the cache partition does nothing to solve the problems with this badly flawed Firmware. Android v4.3 on the Galaxy S3 is a complete mess. Now it takes up to 2 seconds for the screen to appear after pressing the Power button. The same goes for the Dialer, Contacts. Messaging, and Camera.
Even worse is the battery life. The v4.3 update sucks the life out of it.
This is my last Sam-dung phone. I will never buy one of their phones again.

I was hoping to get the S4 clock widget with this firmware. But it's ok, apart from that, I'm happy with it. I know how to get the S4 clock widget but the method requires root, but I don't want to root my phone anymore.

I too experienced the same bro. Even the new 4.3 is not smooth enough but it's quite less lag than 4.1.2 (my opinion and experience). Am not an expert, I just know how to flash n fix a few thing due to my own experience (bricked my phone a few times and various of other problems). Sorry bro couldn't really help you.
I updated my S III to 4.3 and im very much disappointed, it has become extremely slow, fast battery drainage and i also got the files from sammobile.com
I'v got many new features but the phone has become extremely slow
can anyone help me to downgrade to 4.1.2 please?!
