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.

The OS is not junk, just because the hardware manufacturer did not include something that the OS expects.

Risking an OS war a bit, but shouldn't a mobile OS (like Android) have a filesystem designed specifically for flash storage (with a trim command and all), instead of using a filesystem designed for spin-up magnetic drives (ext4), and ask from the hardware to emulate a spin-up magnetic drive for it?

Generally, Android feels like a resource hog. It has the random slowness issue (everything runs fine, then suddenly everything slows down to a crawl for a couple of seconds, then everything is fine again), it consumers lots of battery, it occupies a ton of space because it needs seperate physical partitions for programs and user files like back in the days of old Unix (this is why the Galaxy S4 has so little user space, the rest of the internal storage is for apps).

Don't get me wrong, I admire Android for being the only true PDA from the big 3 (WP, iOS, Android), I just wish Google did more designing and less hacking.
