Settings-more-about device keep tapping build number till you unlock developer options, press back and go into dev options and set transition animation to .5

Worked on my S3 also. Changed everything to 0.5 n now its super fast. I checked force GPU rendering also n scrolling in fast now too. I don't know if that's the reason though.

The answer has helped the speed of the rotation but not the lag between rotating the phone and the screen rotation starting.

Turn off smart rotation. Just realized that is your problem, bring down the notification panel with 2 fingers, press and hold Smart Stay and un check smart rotation

Did not know this. Awesome.

Similar issue I'm having, well not really 'issue' per se: When viewing photos, my GS2 used to auto rotate when I turned the screen around but now you have to press a rotate button. Is there a way to disable this button so it auto-rotates images?

Not sure i completely understand, when the screen rotation is enabled it'll auto rotate. If its not that its probably the smart rotation i mentioned in my last post, and if its not that im not sure what it is, but I'll keep an eye out for other settings

An image will help:



See the Rotate button top right? It's the only way to rotate photos when you turn the screen around. It's greyed out in the image, but if I turn the phone portrait, the photo stays as is but the rotate button becomes available, rather than just auto-rotating as you'd expect. Like I said not an issue per se, but it's an extra button to do something that used to be automatic.

This worked perfect, thanks! No more screen lag when I rotate my phone from portrait to landscape and vice versa.

Just expand on that: you don't have to completely turn off smart stay. You can press and hold the smart stay option, and just turn off the smart rotation.

Cheers
