    Default Galaxy S3 is getting old

    My s3 is almost 2 years old and I'm starting to get new phone envy. Put on a new case yesterday and it totally changed my perception! It's funny how a new look makes my phone not so tired looking! I'm off contract in July, but I'm waiting to see the note 4 before I decide what puts the gs3 into the sock drawer!

    A new theme or case on the phone occasionally helps making the phone feel refreshing
    The Note 4 is a long time away 😩

    Mine was fine till I effed up and loaded the 4.3 ota. I'm so tired of the power sucking, laggy, buggy bs that came with it. I have never altered a phone befor but this one has to change. I am so trying to figure out how to make it right. I have been reading for the last 3 days and am really lost. I have it rooted but now don't know wtf to do. I read so many things that contradict each other.

    Try clearing cache in recovery. [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
