Google "I can't find one person who has been using the Nexus 7 for an extended period of time, and hasn't seen a massive downgrade in performance. Just what kind of downgrade are we talking here? I cannot pick up my Nexus 7 without experiencing problems like a lag of ten seconds, or more, just to rotate the display; touches refusing to acknowledged; stuttering notification panel actions; and unresponsive apps." Fully and utterly agreed. My Nexus 7 was blazing-fast and awesome for a few months, and at some point, it just started sucking. Just like that. I've tried loads of ROMs, and nothing helps.

Google has confirmed that the device needs to have a couple of gigs free in order to function fluidly. There was a columnist in some website (pcmag, pcworld, wired, can't remember) complaining about that. Too lazy to find the link.

Android is a junk OS, sorry fans. It consumes CPU and battery with a huge appetite, and it needs to "have some free space left" otherwise things get slugish (the Unix Haters Handbook wants it's lame filesystem back, seriously it had a complaint about that exact problem)

Also, all those adverts claiming "16GB" or "32GB" of storage without clarifying how much of it is free and how much of it you can fill up without slowing things to a crawl make some telemarketing frauds look like totally honest adverts. 'Till the class action lawsuit happens, things will get worse.
