    Question Slow to get back to the home screen?

    So my gf got the Samsung Galaxy S3 yesterday, and damn it's an amazing phone. I have the SII and am kinda jealous that I have to wait another year for an upgrade. Oh well, I guess that's how things go.

    Anyways, I wanted to see if any of you were getting this issue. Her phone is super fast in almost every way, but when she's in an app and she clicks on the physical button it takes a good second or two to get back to the home screen. I wonder if this has to do with animations or something? Just doesn't seem like it should be lagging in any way. Anyone else see this? Know how to fix it? Thanks!

    I have this issue on my Incredible running ICS. I found that the Apex launcher made it a bit better but I think it's something in the OS.

    Go into S Voice and turn off the double click to launch S Voice... That should help out a bit too.

    Yeah, it is waiting to see if you click twice for S Voice. Turn that off and it should be much snappier

    If you like S voice but rather not deal with the lag, you could try leaving a shortcut on the lock screen.

    Settings > Security >Lock Screen Options > Shortcuts.

    By doing this and disabling the launch option in S voice you would reduce the lag but retain the accessibility by sacrificing some real estate on the lock screen.

    Great suggestion! I was actually wondering how to change those lock screen shortcuts so that helped me a lot even if I don't put that icon in.

    For me getting to home screen was taking 5-6 seconds. Overall the phone was slow too. I figured that it was due to Energy Saving Mode that I had always enabled. I guess it disables some CPU cores to preserve power. Disable it and you'll get your phone running blazingly fast (at a cost of some energy).

    You can also switch to Nova Launcher, which, in addition to being a great launcher, it allows you to put up to 5 operations on your lock screen, among many other great features.

    Long day. I was thinking about the dock.
