I've experienced keyboard lag on a number of Androids - where I'm typing several chacters (sometimes a dozen) ahead of their appearance on screen.
But the S3 brings this lag to a whole new dimension. On this device, I need to hold the key for an extra few milliseconds in order for the key to register - lest it skip letters and "abhorrent" become "aboret".

Re: Keyboard lag...
The updated keyboard is one of the biggest changes I'm excited for in the 4.3 update. I like Samsung's keyboard because of the Clipboard support, among other things. The dedicated number row on main keyboard will be a most welcome change!
I notice that most keyboards which aren't preloaded on the phone tend to lag. Swiftkey lags quite a bit. Google Keyboard lags a little but the latest (post-KK) update is quite a bit smoother than it was before, so it's less of an issue with that one. The Swype and Samsung Keyboards built into the phone do not lag at all. They're also large 30MB+ installs so I'm looking forward to not needing any of them (third party keyboards) anymore :-P

Re: Keyboard lag...
Is there an update available for your keyboard? I use Swiftkey and have had zero lag issues since I updated it but man right before the last update there was a huge lag, but once I updated it seems to have gone away completely. The other thing you may try is clearing the cache for the application that may speed up its use, or clear unused but active apps from the RAM. Just a few things to try. Hope you get it working, a laggy keyboard is the worst!
