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.

I just got one the other day in a trade with a friend (he needed a laptop RIGHT NOW for a work project, he wasn't using his Nexus anymore, I wasn't using my Sony laptop anymore). I am blown away by both the speed and fluidity of JB on this device, and the utterly boring Android interface (not a complaint!). I know I could try a different ROM or launcher and get a "better" experience but I actually enjoy the simplicity of it.

I may try Ubuntu on it one day -- its high compatibility with that OS is what sparked me to make the trade -- and if this "slowdown" ever starts happening to the device I may just switch to that or even Firefox OS. As long as I can read my ebooks and browse the occasional website I'll be happy, as that is all I use a tablet for.
