    Odds are it is a bad app or multiple bad apps causing memory issues.

    I never saw any signs of lag on my S3 when I had it.

    Unlock, root and recovery, install an AOSP ROM? Did wonders for me.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    AOSP just mean "Android Open Source Project", and are your vanilla Android ROMs that have no carrier UI (such as Samsung's TouchWiz) installed, similar to the OS found on Nexus devices. AOSP Roms include those like CyanogenMod and AOKP. Frankly, you can install one if you want, but you will lose most of the Samsung features. To each his own on that one. Frankly, this phone should run just fine on the stock OS or any other TouchWiz based ROM. I'm running CleanROM and my device is smoking...and battery life is phenomenal (see below).

    If you really want to improve phone performance, all you should really need to do is a little spring cleaning. Remove apps that don't use anymore, or just those that are resource hogs that you can live without. Then, go into the apps you use regularly and clear the data and cache if possible (obviously you don't want to do this for games with saved progress and such).

    Since you're rooted (and I'm going to assume have CWM and unlocked bootloader), you could boot into recovery and clear your system cache as well...and if you *really* want to clean things up you could backup your device and do a full data wipe...although if you were going to that far, might as well try a new ROM out!

    Here is CleanROM: [ROM][1/13] - CleanROM 5.6 -★| The Standard for Excellence! |★- - xda-developers

    Great ROM with a lot of features, based directly off of the stock firmware and very stable.

    That can't be considered good. That's horrible.

    21 hours run time with 50% remain? Seems pretty good to me... (and yes, it was connected to wifi, but mobile data was on the entire time).

    Thats too funny, thought you were being sarcastic at first.

    Sorry to jump in your thread OP, but just wanted to ask if theres any known bugs with cleanrom since it was brought up. Specifically with these features:

    -phone
    -sms/mms
    -browser
    -camera
    -gps with google maps

    Thank you!

    Forget about cleanrom. Go with either CM10 or AOKP. Both are significantly faster and get better battery life.

    No problems with any of those. As I mentioned, it's built off the stock firmware, so pretty much everything works -- it just has a few nice extras baked in, bloatware removed, and uses the Aroma installer that allows you pick and choose a lot of the Samsung and Google apps you want.

    If you *want* run AOSP ROMs, those are good choices, but honestly, in my experience, CleanROM runs just as "fast" on the S3 and, as evidenced by my screenshot above, has great battery life too. Really just a matter of personal preference as to whether someone prefers TouchWiz or vanilla Android. I personally like some of the Samsung/TouchWiz features, so I prefer to run a TW ROM. Also, because ROMs like CR are built off the stock firmware, I find there are less bugs...although it has been a while since I ran CM10, so perhaps it's more stable now than it was when tried it out a while ago.

    Not trying to say you're wrong or to discount your advice...just saying that anyone thinking of ROM-ing should weigh the pros and cons of each type before moving forward, because I don't think it's a black and white sort of thing.

    That was kind of my point -- there's no right answer to that question.

    Most of the ROMs can be found over at XDA: Verizon Galaxy S3 Android Development - xda-developers
    And there are some at RootzWiki as well: Verizon Galaxy S3 Development - RootzWiki

    Look over the 1st posts to see what's included in the ROMs, then read some of the latest comments to see what others are saying about them. I recommened CleanRom because that's what I primarily run and I love it...but there are quite a few other popular stock/TW ROMs out there. Then there are those who are die-hard AOSP fans who like CM10 or AOKP. Lots of choices with this device....
