I got tab s3 days ago. It ran android 9 but since it was so laggy I decided to go back to Oreo but it does not seem to help. It is even laggy when I pull down the status bar, like a phone with 2gb of ram in 2019. I tried a hard reset, revert back to Oreo and wipe /cache in default recovery but nothing helps. Any suggestions for me guys :( I don't know what's happening with my tablet. Plus that Knox counter has not been tripped yet, Antutu score is 136594 (I find it normal) and it's still water-resistant. Thank you

Install galaxy labs and app booster plugin. It will optimize the apps and your tab forsure function better.

Interesting, my tab s3 lags a lot too. I originally got this for study (Paramedic school) and for jogging with. Hasn't quite worked out for me yet, but I'm hoping sai444's input will help here. Maybe a rollback too? Still have to research what Galaxy labs an d app booster are lol.

hmmmm, are you sure (as of Nov 2019) that this isn't just the built in device care? My device care says 100% optimised but I know that to be a bit false. Sure the device is relatively healthy but like this title suggests it behaves more like a device with 2GB. I guess a factory reset (again) and just limit the apps I use.

I installed Galaxy Labs from APK Mirror to my Tab S3 and then tried clicking on App Booster. It says the content is not compatible with my tablet. The same message is displayed when I tried the other options.

Anyone else encounter this?

Well, in TB you have the option to froze any app, if something is broken you can unfroze.
There are others apps that can do this too.

You can search for lists in the internet of bloatware in samsung devices, but you can start searching in the TB for samsung, then all the samsung stuff will be shown, then you can start freezing.
Freeze a few things(try to search what that package is) then restart. If something is wrong unfroze some, reboot and check.
It takes time.

Get root and set swappiness to 0. If you want to get high performancemance at the expense of battery set governor to performance. Trust me, it's worth it
