Default My Galaxy S3 lags and is very slow?

Ok so I have got the international s3 and its so slow when I press the home button from an app it takes time to load home screen (S Voice shorcut not enabled) I haven't got many widgets either but I do have games about 6-7 ( 3-4 heavy ones 2.3 GB etc) most of the time ram is 673, out Of 833. What can I do to make it fast. I use fast reboot but it doesn't help

My best educated (?) guess is to use the "back" button instead of the home button.
Using the "home" button still leaves the apps running in the background instead of exiting the app. So you constantly have apps running in the background.

If you are using task killers, stop doing that.

I'm not using any task killers. I'm not sure if Fast Reboot is a task killer but I'm still facing this problem

With the phone on pull the battery and then sim card. Let set for about a minute. Put sim card and battery back and power up. It should be a bit quicker.
