Maybe you guys have some apps which take too much ram .
After the jellybean update, my GSIII definitely got faster overall. The onlly place i got a lag is in the drawer at the widgets section. Lags a few seconds to load all the widgets and that`s about it.
I did a full wipe after the update and i`m stock , not rooted.

Good news lads n lasses!!
Haha.. so, today I got a reply from Samsung Support and I have literally copy-pasted it here..

"Thank you for contacting Samsung.

I am sorry about the issue you are experiencing with your Samsung Galaxy S III handset since the JellyBean update and understand this can be frustrating.

We are currently developing a fix for this issue and we will be rolling it out via a firmware update in due course.

Iím sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

If you require any further assistance, please contact Samsung again and we will be more than happy to help.

Kind regards,

Online Support Team
SAMSUNG Customer Support Centre"

So that is some relief I should say. Eagerly waiting for that fix!! meanwhile to get temporary relief, it helps to clear up the ram every now and then before making calls or texts or zooming in on fotos to avoid the lag! works for me..

omg if that works it would help alot man. i got my s3 on 11th Nov and since then i am experiencing horrible ram usage.after few hours the ram crosses 750MB goes upto 800MB and phone slows down horribly also causing the apps in the memory to restart(finally after few hours the phone restarts and back to normal memory state for few hours then again the cycle begins). this problem was prevalent on stock ICS and also after the JB update. 4 online complaints and 2 visits to the service center, yet unsolved. the first visit to the service center their tech guy tells me "You are supposed to keep on clearing the RAM". even after explaining everything in detail. he gives me that crap. eventually after convincing him, he consults with others and says if the firmware isn't loaded properly that shyt tends to happen. but yet nothing is solved, even after second visit, when he again did the same thing, rolled back to stock firmware and gave it to me.

Try a custom rom, are better optimized than stock one.

Not the only one
I see I am not the only one facing this issue. Like one member mentioned, the RAM crosses 750MB in a few hours. Its the same for me.
And it is so slow that the messaging app keeps closing, the notification drop down takes time, the camera doesn't start up fast, the gallery loads as if I were using a phone from 2009.
Oh and this one is particularly just for my phone, the missed call icon is stuck showing (1)
Gunna take it to the service center and see if it fixes anything. But as I can see, there is no hope but to wait for a fix from Samsung.
BTW I do not wanna root and use a custom ROM

Re: Finding s3 slow after jelly bean update :(
I'm running 4.1.2 Stock XXELKC, my God this ROM is slow. Almost switched to MIUI but I'm not a big fan of these over customized ROMs. Anyone know a good 4.1.2 ROM that's close to the stock but performs well?

If you're experiencing any lag or slowness you should go with a custom ROM optimized for speed & stability like Android Revolution HD

Flash the 22.4 if you can root/modify your device, it's perfect for performance & battery life
