Great phone! But please SAMSUNG. Make a KitKat or Lollipop update for S3 international users :( So you can fix some problems.
I have difficulties in connecting to WiFi/WiFi unstable and sometimes stuttering sound when music playback on earphones. Slightly battery drains maybe due to unnecessary background apps.
alsafi, 14 Mar 2015Use UC bowser instead of the stock browser .... UC is speed , lite , support facebook , speed ... moreok thanks. Yeah I guess I need to find a browser. I temd to use Opera also which sucks quite a bit for speed. I think I read that Chrome uses a lot of energy. Will try UC again maybe.

When online, if i press home so i can send a sms, or even if i change the settings when online in browser like "load images" or clear cookies, then i always lose the web page i was on when i try to come back to it. Whether i have the home page as use current or default this still happens. I didnt have this problem on other phones.
Hello S3 users ...
Settings to speed up system to get maximum performance ( RAM & Battery ) for galaxy S3 ( 4.3 ) ( 4.1.2 ) :
1- in developer options scroll down to Drowing : select animation is off for ( windows animation scale - transion animation scale - animator duration scale ) .
2- in developer options scroll down to Apps : limit background processes and select 4 processes at most . ***( always repeat this selection after turn on or restart phone ) .
3- In application manager ( turn off ) (disable) unnecessary bloatware apps and services for ( google & samsung ) Because it always running in the background and consuming dramatically battery life and Ram .
4- Not install many apps that consuming battery and Ram such as social network apps or games ...etc, You must know that most of these applications are running in the background even if not used !!!!! Only install what you really need in your daily life .
5- in display reduce brightness level less than half . ( not use auto brightness )
6- turn off ( NFC - S Beam - Nearby devices - Screen Mirroring - Motion - Smart Screen - Voice control - Page buddy - Multi windows - Daydeam ) .
7- turned off ( sync ) google account & access to location .
8- Not use live wallpapers.
9- reduce number of pages & widget on home screen ( maximum 3 pages ) .
10- always clean up system ( Ram and cash ) .
11- use home button to close apps that running in the background . After that go to settings > application manager > runnig and stop active apps ( Except system apps ) .
12- use power saving mode to reduce battery consumption ( limit cpu speed ).
For Extremist battery saving mode :
1- Use black wallpaper background in home and lock screens .
2- Not use vibrations in ( call - ringtons - notifications ) .
3- Not use sounds in ( dailing keypad - touch screen - lock and unlock screen ) .
4-Switch off touch key light .
5- Set screen timeout 15 seconds .
6- Not use any live Widget .
Battery charging :
1-To get speed charge close all apps during charge or use airplane mode or turn off phone before charge .
2- If you faced any problem such as slow ( bad ) charge , check your charger , Before you think about change the charger ( adapter& usb cable ) , first change the usb cable ( get new one ) then watch the result .
3- Always use original charger , never use bad quality it will damage your battery and phone .
4- If you are using battery for more than two years itís better to change and get a new one ( original ) .
Golden solution for most apps problems :
If you have any problem with any app
Go to settings > application manager > application ( name ) :
Then restart phone . If the problem continues delete app then install it again , If the problem continues go to recovery mode and choose wipe data partition then reboot system .
If you canít solve the problem in any way you should format ( reset ) your phone or flash a new official ROM .
Other Information :
After update or flash a new ROM itís better to format ( reset ) phone to get pure system to avoid many problems such as overheating or bad charging.
