    By hanging, what do you mean bro? What country/carrier version is it?

    And to add to funky's reply, do you mean it freezes up while using a particular app? Does it hang, or freeze for X amount of time and then go again? Or do you have to do a battery pull?

    take it its the GT-I9300 model then mate? Theres a huge problem with them called Sudden Death Syndrome that causes what youre having. What version of android is it on?
    When it freezes, try and leave it until it reboots itself and this should make it happen less often eventually

    Android version 4.1.2... Ok agreed with the syndrome but why now! Why after 10 months of purchase! I mean out of nowhere?

    Ive no idea. I think its triggered when a certain part of the storage is written to. On my bro's s3 it started after he downloaded a big game. His has started improving now. I have the "insane" faulty chip too and after a year i havent had a problem
