    Question Ex nexus owner....issues/problems

    Hello

    So i recently acquired my S3, i used to have a nexus. I owned that for 13 months.

    OK so here are the issues.

    ALOT of FC's even after fixing permission.

    Boot loops

    Freezes on lock screen on boot up

    Voltages not sticking

    Frequencies not sticking

    Ok....so with my nexus. i never had these problems. maybe a random FC once every week or 2. Never had a boot loop. never had a freeze.

    So im running synergy/clean rom(only TW). Havent tried an Aosp rom yet.

    Ive only use touch wiz rom due to me wanting a stable phone. i dont feel like messing with betas or anything.

    Is this a normal thing with the S3 and roms?

    I even tried a stock rooted rom and i still had problems.

    Any advice? Im just not used to these problems....

    Battery life is great though! LOL

    When its up and running its pretty dam unstoppable.


    Anything helps

    Re you running stock or a rom. I had f/cs only when i ran a rom and didnt wipe correctly. I am using a note 2 but they are very similar.

    Im running a Rom, synergy right now. I always wipe with every rom, even rom updates that dont need wipes i wipe(though i dont update all that much, so thats why i always wipe).

    I do a full factory reset, wipe cache, wipe system, wipe dalvik. Every time.

    I just dont get it.....hence why im on here asking. I didnt know if the roms just arent stable like the nexus or what. I didnt know if it was just something i needed to get used to. i dont remember how the phones were before me nexus.

    I have not ran synergy so can not truly answer. I suggest going to the thread you downloaded synergy from and read up to see if other users are having similar issues.

    Alright well im going to try another DL and do another full wipe and see what happens. i just wanted to make sure this was not the norm. i was beginning to have regrets about getting the S3 due to the Fc's all the time.

    And the pen!!!!I would love to have the note 2, my upgrade is in may, i just dont know if it will be worth getting in may and having for 2 years. I dont know if it would be worth waiting for the note 3...IF verizon even gets it.... Also...if the note 3 goes to 5.8...i dont think i would get it anyways. so many unknowns!! ahh
