Nexus 7 lag problems and complaints

Under: Tablet PC
Date: June 20th, 2013

It is widely believed that we will soon see a new version of the Nexus 7 being released, but there are growing reports of issues affecting the current model with complaints of lag problems from some users.

The Nexus 7 introduced a lot of consumers to owning a tablet PC as the device brought with its competitive pricing some worthy specifications. A few months later though there some users that are reporting issues with the device such as lag and slow playback of content.

It seems the problem gets worse once the available storage on the device is almost used up with users suggesting running certain apps that can polish up the available memory. It is not known if the issues are down to the Android 4.2.2 firmware currently running on the Nexus 7 or if the hardware is at fault.

The lag issue isn’t affecting all users though and we have a 32GB Nexus 7 in the office with no problems but still have a lot of memory available. Many Nexus 7 users have installed the free Forever Gone application and reported that after it has done its magic their Nexus 7 seems like new again.

It has long been claimed that the new version of the Nexus 7 with an improved display along with a more powerful Qualcomm processor and 2GB of RAM is in the works, and should be available shortly.

Hopefully though the Nexus 7 2 release will see the addition of microSD card support which was arguably the only thing missing from the original model.

    I have gigs of Google Music pinned, Play Magazines etc. On top of the games and podcasts. But if I let it fall below a couple of gigs of space it becomes unbearably laggy. This is not a one off – if I clear some space it comes back to life, when I fill it up again…. try it. As much as I love this tablet, it’s frustrating not being able to use that space.

    I myself is having the same problem for about an month ..After repeatedly calling Google Play they took my nexus 7 for a check to fix it .. and they returned by just factory re-setting it nothing else . Now again from few days i am having same issue and i am sure there is a prob in SSD becoz in initial month it was running like charm when when it has low space was available ..
    Apple is best , my Ipad first gen even now work marvelous .. A waste of Rs.16,000
