    OK, so first the problem... it lags, and it lags bad. I cant play any game without lag, for example even in Bike race i get a little lag here and there, and in Dead Trigger/GTA Vice City it lags unplayable at the highest settings. what worries me is that my friend with a galaxy S2 can run GTA perfectly maxed out, wasn't the s3 suppose to be more powerful?

    To factory reset, go to settings, Back up and reset, factory reset. It might solve the issues, as mine doesn't lag at all, and I played games like GTA in the past.

    Do you have power saving mode enabled. That might affect any app that needs a lot of CPU. I disable power saving mode whan playing angry birds. It helps.

    So i do not have power saving on no, I did do the factory reset and i did see a boost in performance with dead trigger though it is still lagging a little bit which i think it is suppose to run perfectly even on maxed graphical settings

    what i have not done is uninstall the stuff jeepmaster brings up, do you think i should do that or what?

    Disable any type of virus malware app. Also make sure you do not have any type of autoupload going on to Dropbox, Microsoft, Google+, Facebook etc that could be going on in the background.

    if its 2 days old and u dont have much data on it yet it might be easier to try and get it replaced and see only. If i am not mistaken the phone ure using is not a quad core and is a dual core phone only right? The international version of the phone has a quad core cpu so some users here might say gta runs fine(it does run fine on my phone also) but that could be cause of the cpu also.

    yeah i have a dual core, I mean if the phone is just not powerfull then fine but i thought it was better, i mean my friends s2 can run it flawlessly

    the s2 is also dual core the game should run without any issues on the s3. You can try getting it replaced only might be easier since its new and see if it solves the issue.

    Is your friends Galaxy S2 using Snapdragon or Exynos?

    If it's also a Snapdragon(older generation) similar to yours then your performance doesn't make allot of sense unless you have the resolution turned right up, bare in mind the screen resolution on the S2 is lower so things are not equal when the resolution option is maxed.

    If it's Exynos then maybe the Mali 400 GPU is just better suited or they've done a better job optimizing the game for the Exynos based phones like the S2/S3 and Note1/Note 2.

    Or your phone could be faulty. :D

    I recently bought 3 S3s for myself and my kids. 2 out of 3 perform flawlessly. We just returned (exchanged) my daughter's a couple of days ago. It lagged and stuttered just swiping home screens (it was screwy right from the day it was bought). The new one she got performs the way it should. I guess some of them are just defective.
