    Default Galaxy S4 Extremely Slow After 4.3 Update

    I'm new to this forum so if you could give a helping hand that would be great.

    I updated my S4 a while back with the 4.3 update and ever since then everything about the phone has been super laggy - texting, the reaction of the touchscreen, apps (especially YouTube) - absolutely everything is significantly slower than before.

    Any ideas on how to fix this problem at all ???

    I have Verizon and my S4 has been very slow since I updated it on Dec. 19, 2013. Many apps also now freeze and force close. If anyone has any info as to how to fix this I'd appreciate the help! Loved the S4 before the Android 4.3 update.

    Have you tried going to developers option and change 3 animation settings go to 0.5x? Mine was slow but changing to 0.5x made it super fast. And I Am loving it. Google it - show developer option on S4.
    once there, half way down the screen change 3 settings to 0.5x or even 0
    Window animation scale
    Transition animation scale
    Animator duration scale

    And see the difference. You will Thank me for ever
