    Ever since i got the phone the keyboard takes ages to come up. Doesnt matter what app, texting, youtube, google etc it takes at least 10 seconds to come up, not sure what to do at this point. Ive tried stock, swiftkey and swype and they all come up slow

    I agree that it's bad. I've been on android for a while so I'm used to it, but a lot of people coming from iPhones think it takes forever.

    Although I will say with Swype or the Google keyboard it's pretty quick. The Samsung keyboard seems to lag more.

    Did you get the phone new? This is very strange behavior - why didn't you get it looked at when it was still in the exchange period?
    Your best bet would be to backup your information (using Kies or some other solution) and perform a Factory Reset.

    It happenes randomly, it's not always, whenever a new update would come out it'd go away for a week then progressively get worse. When I first got swiftkey it was quick at first then went to really slow again. I still have warranty on the phone because they talked me into it but verizon doesn't carry the s3 in 32 gb's anymore

    My other problem is my power/unlock button is going out. I have to push it in just the right spot or else the screen turns back on right after I i turned it on, or it wont turn off and will just go on the turn off screen and start blinking that

    Like the smart stay, smart rotate...that stuff might delay the keyboard.
