Updated s3, but now having lag

I updated my Samsung Galaxy s3 to run the new kernel version 3.0.31.


Unfortunately, ever since then, my phone has become very unresponsive.

Texting lags where i type out a sentence, and the sentence doesnt show up until a second later.

Apps are running slower then before the update.

I do not have that much storage used on my phone (close to 55%). I have tried cleaning the phone out by deleting cache, downloads, closing apps, clearing memory, turning the phone off/on, and resetting it.


Wanted to see if anyone is experiencing this, was able to fix it, and/or any suggestions on what to do.
If not, might have to replace this phone with another one.

Have you tried updating it to Jellybean 4.1.1? 

If the XDA Developers forum has a thread for this kernal there should be someone there that can help troubleshoot too.  Or just under the phone type there is a forum for troubleshooting too.

XDA is for people that are a little on the tech savvy side. If you are on 4.0.4 and can't get the 4.1.1 update through AT&T, i recommend that you get it from Samsung Kies. I did and JellyBean with prodject butter is light years ahead of ICS.
