    tbh that shouldnt slow down/speed up the phone in any way man. glad its workin tho
    Yes, exactly. That's why I was surprised. But it was unmistakably more responsive to everything. Moved all camera and music storage freeing up over half the internal storage. It reminded me of before/after defragmenting a hd that is way fragmented. And I know that's not the same mechanical seek time issue on a SS drive, but it was like that. Oh well, no complaints, I'll take it.

    I'm running with both set to off.
    If I notice problems, I'll try the .5 as suggested.
    No problems with that, I've been set to off for like a month now with no issues whatsoever. I personally prefer instant response over nice animated fade in's/out's and all that jazz

    according to my experience, the slow reason may be caused by many factors, but the most possible problem is digitizer screen or the phone system, you should check the phone in the two sides.

    +1 for no animation.

    I now retract my "slow comment" - feels zippier !!!

    My Quadrant results: SIII international no rooting, rebooted with just Wifi turned on:
    Total 3469. CPU 8476, Mem 2697, I/O 3893, 2D 654, 3D 1624

    How does that compare with others? Seems low to me (from previous post in this thread)

    EDIT - Turned animation off: Got this:

    Total 3851. CPU 9053, Mem 2985, I/O 5213, 2D 667, 3D 1339

    Large difference is CPU and I/O. Weird.

    This may seem like a stupid question but you're remembering to clear the ram right? Did you turn the home lag off (where you can double tap and svoice won't pop up)?

    Damn, I get like 4740 or something about there with a fresh boot and nothing else really running outside of system stuff (ie. no push email or widgets or anything). Still a great score nonetheless.

    click svoice then press the menu button. Go to the settings. I'm not sure what is called but you should see something like double tap home button. Uncheck it.now your phone go to the home screen faster

    u have to root the phone and flash a rom with a "kernal" that can be clocked. i had a zte blade, 100 phone (about $150?) which was really crap out of the box but in like 10mins u could carrier unlock it for free, root and custom rom it without a computer, then overclock it to 729mh and it felt like a phone 3times the price. legendary phone

    How did you get that? As I said, I rebooted mine which should have cleared all the ram, stray programs etc. I don't have svoice enabled.

    Mine is a 1Gb international one and I have a 32gb SD card installed.

    Total: 5276; CPU 12840; Mem 4664; I/O 6007; 2D 1000; 3D 1871.

    It now beats the HTC One X.

    what's "rooted"?

    what's "rooted"?
    My understanding is that a rooted phone has had all of the manufacturer and carrier software stripped away leaving the user with the hardware architecture and Android OS. It allows way more customization and direct system control. The basic firmware is replaced by a custom 3rd party ROM.

    No. That's when you already installed a custom rom. To do that you need to root the phone. Rooting gives you access to settings you don't have with the official rom, including installing a new custom one and installing apps that change certain settings in your os.

    Rooting is all about getting your choice of custom firmware from a website to your PC to your phone memory where you can then boot the phone with it and replace stock firmware by flashing the new one to internal ROM. I suppose you could argue that installing the ROM isn't part of rooting, however I look at it as the final step. Otherwise the stock ROM is still in place and your phone system software hasn't changed.

    Maybe my expectations were set too high with all the hype, but gmail still takes a second to load (even if I load it, press home, then gmail again).

    I figured if it's all in memory, it should be closer to instant, rather than one full second to load.

    Would 4 cores help?

    Will JellyBean help?

    Don't get me wrong: I love my S3's, but I certainly wouldn't mind more speed switching, launching, etc. (I don't play games so I no basis to just processor performance other than task launching and switching)

    I think it's the gmail update process, not the phone. I maintain about 12 email addresses on my phone, including an Exchange account, numerous Yahoo addresses w/Yahoo app, 4 gmail addresses and even some outlook.com addresses. I have played extensively with the email clients, including reducing the gmail addresses to 1, and every single time the worst performing email client is gmail.

    There are other things you can do to speed up the response time for basic navigating and switching apps, etc. These are well documented.
