The Google Launcher is just an alternative Launcher. You can switch quickly between Launchers by downloading an app named 'Home Switch' (it's icon is a green house with a left/right arrow) from the Play Store.
I made the Google Now Launcher my default one so that it loads (first) instead of Touchwiz but I can switch between the two with that app.
I've found the Google Launcher to be faster and smoother than Touchwiz and it also leaves more FREE RAM for the user.
If you don't like it just uninstall it and go back to Touchwiz or whatever Launcher you prefer.

No more reasons to be bogged down with that awful memory hogging Touchwiz.
Get over to the Play Store and install it. It's a lot faster than TW.
Please my samsung galaxy s3 is on 4.1.1 and I am having the t mobile version .I want to upgrade to 4.4 is there a way I can skip 4.1.2 and 4.2.2and go directly to 4.4.
i am using both s3 and s3 neo as my bro got s3 neo and i have s3 i we both feel s3 is complete fone as it have usb otg through which i play games using usb remote control attach pendrives to transfer data
also used the mhl cable to get ouput on my led tv through which i enjoy showing my camera pics and videos to my family in big screen
both above feature are not supported by s3 neo
(my brother cribs for buying s3 neo lolz)
as for the performance of heavy gaming is concerned both phone works equally both have same performance but for the above 2 features s3 is superior than s3 neo.
Tarun, 31 Jul 2014I hve s3 its awesome mobile . But since few months it take 5hrs to charge I don't know why ... moresame here, in a few months charger played up. I realised that it is as the usb cabled charged can be confusing for the sgs 3 to pick up for some reason. For over a year now i use the sgs3 charger to charge my sgs1 and it works fine on that phone, and charges it faster since its a higher amp. I also use the sgs1 charger on the S3 as it works faster to charge the S3, since the S3 doesnt get confused that its maybe in usb mode.
I need to know, which is better SIII or S3 Neo
S3 Neo has 2 SIM 1.5G RAM but 1.2G Processor
SIII has one SIM 1.0G RAM but 1.4G Processor
The battery could weaken with time. try charging your phone while being switched off. I tried this and it worked.
Now the charging process is back to normal.

I've also faced the same issue within four months of purchase. The default charger that comes with GS3 is of poor quality
I bought this mobile 6 months ago after installing 15 to 16 apps its starts hanging. Some application takes more time to open. Like me number of people facing the same issue . http://www.mouthshut.com/mobile-phones/samsung-galaxy-s3-reviews-925643868
