    I know "slowness" has been mentioned many times in the past, but after installing the last update on November 16th, my S3 has showed down substantially. Very poor video and S-Pen performance. I have done the usual steps of cache clearing but nothing has helped. I have not done a complete factory reset. Anyone else seeing this?

    Yes you are not alone. It's ridiculously slow. I get error messages when logging on. I wish I would have waited until to this year for the new Google tablet.

    I think the slow video performance could be attributed to the reduced allocation for video memory that someone else noticed.
    debsawyer and milleniumdroid like this.

    Yes, I've started having some barely noticeable microlag in Rush Rally 2 (I have superb vision so I can actually notice). It is obviously video memory lag and NOT GPU LAG (there is a difference and experienced power users like me can tell) This is SOOOOOO ANNOYING. Will have to play GTA SA for longer when I have time so that I can see whether that might have been affected, but it looks like there is a way less noticeable difference (making a quick loop around one part of San Fiero outskirts near the airport). I hope somebody makes an Odin-flashable custom kernel that fixes this, but I still wouldn't flash anything till the 2 year warranty expires... WHAT THE HELL IS SAMSUNG THINKING????????

    As for the S-Pen, the tablet now suddenly seems to favor the rigid gray-colored tips over the soft white ones (the white cause APP DRAWER LAG), although it might've been that my old white top was also worn out a bit. The gray tips are still vastly easier to drag on the screen and the screen responds way better to them.
