Sam the cool guy, 23 Jul 2013but my s3 charger vry slow charge to my s3.its suck@ Sam the cool guy
Check the output on your Samsung charger, they do vary. I have one that is 0.7A output, but a later model that is 1.0A output. I purchased a 2A charger from Amazon which cuts my charging time down considerably. Some people claim that a higher output like that harms the battery, but I haven't found that it does.

That's because there was a big hoo-hah about phones using different connectors on the charging port and nearly all the manufacturers (not Apple of course) agreed to use micro USB as a standard.

Doh, that's one of the first things I always turn off anyway. Just for you, I turned that option back on, and yes, there is a momentary delay before the screen returns to the default one when you press the Home button with it on; but because the option is still built in to the OS then it would.
Who ever uses S-Voice anyway? (Waits for indignant replies of "I do").

What about the delay to go to the default home screen when you press the home key, that was being caused by having S-voice being active, was that fixed?

Oddly enough, yes, they do! There is no delay at all now. Samsung must have listened to users complaints.

Day 1 of using Android 4.2.2 and things are looking good so far, although there are a few things I'm still working out.
For instance, you now have banner notifications on your lockscreen for missed calls and texts. If you slide your finger down on the text notification then a greyed out box appears with nothing in it (strange). Swiping on the box takes you directly to the messaging app where you can read the message in full. I think the box is supposed to show you a preview of the message but it doesn't. People on the S4 forums are equally puzzled so it's not just on this ROM.
You now have multple lockscreens. If you slide your finger across the top of the lockscreen it takes you to another one that slides in from the left. You now add widgets to the lockscreen so that you don't have to open the phone. I have 3 lockscreens set up, but I don't know how many you are allowed.
Lockscreen options are now 'Ripple' and 'Light'. Ripple you know about. 'Light' is just that. You get a bright lightspot on the screen that glows even brighter when you press it.
RAM management is greatly improved; the phone is really smooth now. From looking at the Task Manager it seems (although I might be wrong), that apps you haven't used for a while are automatically removed from memory, so freeing up more RAM for use.
The Settings menu has been overhauled and you now have 4 tabs along the top - Connections, My Device, Accounts, and More. It makes navigation a lot easier.
The notification bar at the top now has 17 options (NO, I'm not going to list them all).
Battery management - too early to tell as I've been playing about with Settings etc. which is bound to take it's toll on the battery, but I will update.

I would have stopped after 2.
But you should also take a good look at where you are buying your devices from, not just the brand. I don’t know how things work where you are but where I am, some stores are known for selling 2nds (device that didn't past strict quality control standard of the manufacture.) they get them cheaper that way, so they can make more profit or pass the savings on by advertising a sale.

You are implying that Phone 5 is zero lag and hang?
Yiu have a nice day, ok.
I bought this phone last week but recently i got some phone call earpiece and mic issue even though i use the loud speaker i can't hear the person i'm calling and they can't hear me too and the signal suddenly disappears and comes back after a minute or so, i just returned the phone today for repair, everytime I buy samsung phone there's always some flaws unlike nokia (except windows phones) and other lower end brands, I'm so disappointed at samsung mobile phone products, of all the products I had everything had a problem 6/6

That what I ment by you get what you pay for.
My mom has a cheap lumia so I know. It's good enough for her needs but I'm upset that Skype couldn't install on her model, so she still has to sit by a pc to use Skype.
