freezes and crashes

Sep 12, 2021

I have a Galaxy S3 that I use for trying different ROMs. It does suffer though from freezes and depending on ROMs from crashes likes apps or even launchers.

I don’t have this problem with an old Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010 also from 2012.

I just found that, could bad sectors be the source of my problems ? https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...em-freezes-without-wiping-the-device.2566208/

Could the problem also come from bad partition ?

The motherboard just got replaced in a shop as the USB port did not work for years. The motherboard was a second hand one though. Could the problem come from that ?

Is there any way to know whether I could have a hardware problem before trying all sort of software fixes ?

Thanks in advance for answers.
