    Awesome thanks Bsweetness, I guess all the ones I was reading were for international. So do you notice a difference between the 1GB of the Razr and the 2GB of the S3?

    Given the way that Android handles processes, I really didn't think I'd notice a difference before I received the S3. I was wrong. The bump up is definitely noticeable. Coming from the MAXX, which was the smoothest, quickest phone I'd ever had, I didn't expect much of a difference in the performance of the S3. But the S3 is a split-second faster at everything, and it doesn't get nearly as bogged down as quickly.

    I might be a RAM a hog but many of the system apps are using a lot of RAM:
    Settings 32MB
    Google Services 13MB
    Email 32MB
    Homescreen 44MB
    Swype 36MB

    Other apps don't use much but all together they total about 640MB of RAM.

    I was surprised at how much RAM was in use. Many apps don't have a Quit or Exit button as if that would make a difference.

    Anyway, I guess I'll just have to make do.

    Thanks for your help.
    The capacitive back button at the bottom of the screen is the quit/exit button for most apps. If you just press the home button, that will (in many cases) keep the app open in the background. While it's not the case for every app, if you tap the back button until you exit the app, that will completely close it out.

    I agree with everything you said about the way the 3 is slightly quicker. Given the processor is a 1.4 gigahertz as opposed to a 1.2 gigahertz I gotta wonder how much of it is actually the ram or processor. Either way I don't feel that much of a difference considering the ram has doubled and it's running a faster more efficient processor. In fact in many areas the razor is much more responsive to me.
