    I switched to the S3 from my Thunderbolt, and I love the device, but everyone has to be noticing the keyboard slowness, especially when texting. For example, you type out your text, and it'll take a few seconds to actually show up what I typed.

    I know it's not just my device, as I tried the store model phone, and also a friends S3, same thing happens.

    Stock, ICS ROM, Verizon. I haven't installed a whole bunch of things, and I noticed it early...like the day I got the phone.

    Can anyone else elaborate or state if you have this issue, and if there are any types of fixes to make it more snappy. It's the default Samsung Keyboard.


    After playing with some options, it SEEMS better, I turned off T9 Trace, Handwriting, Key-tap vibration, and Key-tap sound.

    Will be able to tell after more real life use. Any other suggestions?
