Eisley, 23 Oct 2013Thank you!
You've clearyfied several thinks for me!
Now just some more questions, please... more1. You would have to use directory bind.
I know of it and donít use it.
Iím not comfortable leaving my phone rooted.
2. I have changed my list of apps that boot whit the phone. 696 used of the 832 which is where it remains more or less.
3. 4.1.2 TT version. Have used UK, Brazil and digicel in the past.
4. Will do the 3D benchmark test over the weekend.
Syrus, 22 Oct 2013Hi Anthony Ö.Does "clear cache partition" delete all my apps in my device?? I am not... moreClearing the cache partition
Only clears the partition the cache is stored on no other partition on your ROM chip.
Nothing is installed to cache
Cache is used as virtual RAM that has the advantage of not being cleared with the loss of power.
Is like a PC page file.
No to the next question.
Dude, free your phone memoru to the max. Move everything to that 8 gb free card, your phone will run fine.
Eisley, 22 Oct 2013Thank you for your reply. Altough you didn't reply to all my questions and now I'm wondering a... moreI played A8 for about 5 hours on and off, and couldnt stand the game. However it ran fine on high graphics, also played on the tv via mhl. Nfs mw also runs fine, i did have some very slight lag, but that was only on the tv and due to my decrescent mhl i believe. Apparently hdmi cable is hit and miss as to how good the cable quality is made to (how fast it transfers media to tv etc), despite the ratings it has.
@spaceman thanks for those words it helped..
@anthony, you may be some expert or something of this mobile world but that doesnt matter.. i had to ask question because i was confused.. try to help people not discourage them
Guys my S3 is about year n a half old and now it lags like hell. Everything just freezes for few seconds. Sometimes even requires a restart. Dont know whats wrong with the device, phone memory has more than 4 gb free space and memory card has about 8gb free space.
What else could be the problem???
A quick question about BBM. Does anyone know how to turn it off? I mean that there are times when you don't want it beeping at you every couple of minutes (know what I mean lads?), but you can't exit the program; it is ON permanently. Yes, you can mute the phone, but that silences everything and it is easy to forget to turn the sound back on. You can also go into BBM Settings and turn off all notifications, but the app is still running in the background draining your battery all night. The only way I have found is to go into Application Manager and 'Force close' it.
Anthony, 22 Oct 2013i eventually got a pin but not by email. that never came. read my post with time stamp 2013-... moreWell that's wierd you know? my wife use a diferent email address and the program update the info imediatly so now she's happy using the application
In reply to deadman143 @ 2013-10-22 21:01 -S3 sound issues there are none that that are not found in any other manufacturer.
Lots of normal issues will affect sound ie battery charge level signal strength. S3 is a brilliant phone probably the best when it came out. Enjoy it. Ignore comments which are offensive and offer no help at all.
Hope this helps
Looks like the link is broken:
You can check my screenshots there in the comments, or here but only one: http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/662/2351/original.jpg
If you want. More important is the 3D Mark test and my other concerns n.n
Anthony, 22 Oct 2013Yes kies will reject if counter is above 0 or rom is not stock or stock rom donít match CSC or... moreThank you!
You've clearyfied several thinks for me!
Now just some more questions, please try and help me:
Is it possible move the apps you install to the SD out of the box? Or it's not possible and you need to root and force-move them?
Maybe even that is not possible. As in the Razr i, the SD card is emulated and the system can't use it for apps. How is this in the S3?
How much RAM used and free you get after a reboot? Do you use a custom ROM? What Android version are you using? Have you checked Jkays app?
Have you tried Directory Bind? Does it work for the S3 on JB? It does something.. and moves the heavy data folders from games to the actual external SD.
That link take you right where a comment I posted is. Don't scroll up, it's righ there. There are several pics and the first ones are what is achieved thanks to Directory Bind. It may not interest you so much as you are not gamer and 11GB is plenty of space if you don't install games. But it's really useful!
The benchmark app is this: 3D Mark
Please share the results with me and all of us. Screenshots of the section "My Device" and the Ranking would be awesome! I had told you to email the srceenshots cause it's easier through the Share button on the phone. But thanks anyway! Checking that will help me a lot!!!!
Eisley, 22 Oct 2013Thank you for your reply. Altough you didn't reply to all my questions and now I'm wondering a... moreYes kies will reject if counter is above 0 or rom is not stock or stock rom donít match CSC or recovery is not stock. If anyone of them are off, kies will not do updates
Odin3 is after market flashing software (it donít give a sh-t about anything mentioned above. And is used to do manual flashing of ROMs you download to your PC. It will not find ROMs for you. You have to do that work your self.
I get stork roms for any market CSC from
but you have to become a member before you can download.
There is where you most likely would have to go to get your stock updates if you not using kies or OTA
Kies in the official Samsung software that is automated just like OTA but if you screw with anything mentioned above forget using kies to for updates till you fix things back.
I do use TouchPal contacts & dialpad because I canít deal with that lag. But it would be nice if the default dialler in a PHONE was lag free.
Im not a gamer so I canít answer gaming questions unless its candy crush you want help with. lol.
Tell me which 3D test app you want me to try for you and Iíll post link to the images. Iím not going to email you.
