dd, 09 Nov 2014how 2 de-activate d developer option? pls adviceI think they removed the developer options as us normal users dont really know what they are for, and may even damage the phone, not sure. But the ones mentioned are fine to use, just remember to turn them off (not that i always remember) when you want to game, and i pressume multitasking is also a problem if the options i said are ticked.
dd, 09 Nov 2014how 2 de-activate d developer option? pls adviceYou might not have them set up. On firmware 4.1.2 they are already on the phone, and found in settings. Just scroll down to the bottom of the list. On 4.3 you need to select more- about device- and then tap build number about 10 times. Its easy and will tell you developer mode is set up. I only use them for limit background processes to 4 at most, & sometimes i have do not keep activities on. As said i turn the dev' options off when gaming as if gaming or multitasking then the apps/games dont work properly.

As u told u used s4 before Is there any difference in s3 and s4 in battery li... moreSorry to say we have a program that warns consumers of various things, and apparently a lot of S4 users find their phone so hot it is actually melting and catching fire, exploding. This is no joke and is not always down to using a faulty charger. It seems to be a problem that many S4 users are facing where it gets so hot they have to take battery out if they can touch it, or turn off. It seems to happen whilst in normal use even on standby, and also can happen when charging. Just google S4 melting, overheating and see the pictures for yourself. I think the S3 is safer as its only quad core.....thats my educated guess anyway.
dd, 09 Nov 2014I did all the steps u said.. but still not working..Ok well I guess its one of the apps you disabled. Maybe if you just re-enable them all again and then try closing apps another way. As I mentioned vaguely I find watching what apps are openin the "Services in use" menu is a good way to see what apps are active, and so to see the ones I that I am fine closing. And then I disable those apps from the all menu as well as close them in the services in use menu. I even check they havent gone to a background services and close them there also. I noticed the ram calculation takes a few minutes to stabalise.
Thats just how it is closing apps etc, it affects the phone temporary. I find if I use developer options to limit background processes, then its all fine until I try gaming and then I have to deactivate the developer options so the phone runs normal again.
S3 is still in market.........But no updates for S3? ........Samsung plz concentrate ur famous phones like S3, S duos, Grand, and give updates.......... Every day launching new phone will only create problems.

Hi, s3 user from india... Samsung did not offer updates through out all the regions/countries at once... the update i mentioned was released in Netherlands Open network i9300XXUGNJ2 region code is PHN. I dont know when samsung release this update in india or else where... u can also flash above stated firmware via odin but keep in mind that after update via odin u will loose r warrenty and will no longer update ur fone with samsung kies... so if u have enough tech know how than go ahead otherwise use ur country specific updates they contain region related language support and many other network related optimizations... and about the picture share and other problems see ukuser post he has mentioned how to re-enable those apps responsible for that task
Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Samsung Galaxy Grand 2? Which is more better? Help me please..

If you wipe the cache partition just before using Odin3 you will not get the problem of the phone freezing on the logo screen after the flash.
Very Good Phone ...No complains...Hope to see an upgrade for KitKat soon http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-I9300 :-)
AnonD-13788, 07 Nov 2014I have been trying the lists Right now I am looking at my SGS3's. I have 2 as i got them cheap... moreBoth are averaging around the figures pretty stabily. I have both on limit background processes 4 at most ( though i closed the 4 and waited to see what opened). And also on the "services in use" menu i closed all apps and just allowed the ones to open automatically. Anyway this seems to be working the best way for me.
Edit the phone on 4.1.2 also has Google Partner set up disabled.

I have 2 as i got them cheap (hopefully will last me a few decades and with keyboard & mouse etc). One is on 4.1.2 other is 4.3. I have managed to get 487ram free on 4.3 version and could delete a few apps more that are always running, Ymail, Poweramp,Widgetzoid, so possibly 500+ free. The phone on 4.1.2 is around 370 free ram. All i've closed is google books, google play games, google magazine, google movies, google music, Svoice
