    Exclamation 4.3 issues

    hello, I want to know about some problems
    The gallery is very slow (to open)
    and the lockscreen haves a delay of two seconds to appears
    the performance of the smartphone still the same
    Is there any fixes to this problems?
    I'm using the 4.3 update from UK

    I am using the BTU GMK6 firmware and have found the phone to be much more responsive than before.
    How did you update?
    It may be that your firmware has not installed properly.
    Try going to Kies3 > Tools > Firmware upgrade and initialization

    This will reinstall your firmware.

    If you do not want to do that, then go into Recovery Mode and Clear cache, to see if that improves the response time.
    Failing that, you could Clear Data - but if going down that path you would be better going to my first suggestion.

    Using Kies, you have the option to save.

    If not using Kies, use the Helium app from the Play Store.

    Depends where the data is saved.
    If on an external sdcard it will not be touched by any reset.

    If on internal sdcard (phone memory) then both Kies and Helium will save and restore.

    I was looking for a solution for "Gallery" that continuously crashes. This is what you need to do:

    Settings > "More" Tab > Application Manager > All > Press Option Button (The Lower Left Button near the Home Button)
    > Reset App Preferences > Reset Apps

    It worked for me tho!

    It was not quite fast as it responded, but I was able to use the "Share" option on it! Hope that this works for you too!

    Cheers!

    Phone Model: Samsung Galaxy SIII (GT-I9300)
    Firmware Version: 4.3

    heard rumors that the legendary 4.4 KITKAT will come in MARCH

    luckily there is a CUSTOM ROMS that can solve your problem for now

    if you prefer Touchwiz and Stock Samsung experience then check this out

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1797334

    if u don't like Touchwiz and want the latest and probably the most stable 4.4.2 ROM then check this

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2583606

    my S3 came with stock ROM , i grew tired of it after 2 years with no updates at all so i changed to Android Revolution 40 which blew my mind it's 100% stock Galaxy S3 4.3 ROM + already rooted and much much faster than stock 4.3 i had no problem with at all

    I updated here in Thailand on 28th Jan. So far no problems.

    There was however a small problem with my back up, I backed up my contacts to Kies, did a factory reset after the update. When I restored my contacts, I lost about 20 or so numbers that were saved in groups.

    Probably an issue with the Kies rather that the update.

    I suggest finding another way of backing up your contacts, if anyone intends to do a factory reset.
