    Default Re: Help !! Galaxy S3 Freezing every few minutes. unresponsive.

    Clear your Cache manually through Settings, Applications Manager, All;
    Go down the list and stop at the programs you use most frequently. Clear the cache of any you come across.
    The phone locks just as a PC locks when it is looking for a spot to allocate information. When the easy spots are full it takes more time to find a spot for that file, and when it is so full it continues to search, the result is lockup. Eventually it may find a spot and resume but as more cache file are generated the worse it becomes.

    Operating System needs a better Cache Cleaning Utillity, with auto dump.

    Thanks, this worked for me... I just disabled Samsung Apps (didn't use it anyway) and the phone is back to normal.

    I've had the same problem. You should try removing SD card if you have one installed, if that doesn't help do a factory reset and complete reset of cache and dalvic. If that doesn't help, sorry to say, but you have to take it to the service. I've got mine back like 3 days ago from service and technician said that it's motherboard's failure and if you don't have any spare S3 motherboard, there's no luck trying fixing it on your own. If you're still on warranty UNROOT (if you have rooted before), use triangle away (if you want to completely erase all the root signs) and take it to the service. Trust me, if all the solutions won't help, you don't have much of a choice. I've got my motherboard replaced, replaced Integrated Flash and Linear Vibration too, now it's working perfectly. So if you're under warranty, run to the service, if not.. well it'll be cheaper to get yourself a new phone (Nexus 4 for example.)

    Good luck!


    P.S. search thorough this thread: Galaxy S3 keeps freezing. help! There're alot of tips how you can try helping yourself out.

    EVERYONE!
    My S3 was about to be put out of service by myself indefinitely. I mean. 10 hard resets in less than 5 minutes. Freezing before I even log in or enter the chip's password...
    But I tried out Dummy File Generator
    My Phone is now back to full speed. No freezes. No reboots.

    1- Download app.
    2- Run, and press Generate(FULL).
    3- You'll phone will probably freeze part way of the process. No matter. Hard reset and do step 2 again.
    4- Repeat step 3 as many times as necesary. You will see that the file generation will be quicker each time, and freezes will occur much later in the process (if any).
    5- Delete the dummy file (s).
    6- Restart phone.
    7- Do step 2 once more just to be safe.
    8- Restart phone.
    9- Enjoy your NEW phone.
    10- Write an angry letter to SAMSUNG and insinuate it was all a ploy (including the lack of an upgrade to 4.2.2 OS which was promised for September) to force you to buy an S4 and thus better the lousy sales that model had this year!

    It's basically motherboard's or memory chip's failure. Try dummy file generator, for some people it works. If it doesn't try the tips I've mentioned before. If all that doesn't work, take it to the service.

    Good luck

    It doesn't happen when the wifi is disabled.

    Do you really mean a hard reset? or just a reboot. Surely after a hard reset, all you apps would have been deleted and you would need to redownload the Dummy File Generator and reinstall it every time

    I have or should say used to have the same problem, the display froze up as soon as I taped a link or sometimes when the phone did something on its own.

    My firmware: I9300XXELL4
    Android version: 4.3.1
    CyanogenMode: 10.2 Nightly build 20131113

    Since I uninstalled "Samsung Apps" and stoped "facebook service" (forced shutdown), my phone havent froze once. No need to reboot or anything unless charging. Its just Amazing.
    The phone have not behaved like this even when it was new some years ago.
    I will test run facebook again and let you know how it turns out.

    Well facebook run for 2 min, then the phone froze... Facebook is out

    Have you looked at the ratings for the Facebook app in the Google Play Store? It's 3.7 - I won't install anything with a rating less than 4.0 on my phone for this very reason. What a POS. And people wonder why their phones are having problems...

    5 days ago I went ahead and installed the EMC2 firmware and can confirm that it has completely gotten rid of any freezing issues and the phone has never been better!
    Anyone dealing with any type of freezing issues should install this firmware asap!
