    My first generation Nexus 7 (Model ME370T) running Android 5.1.1 runs unbelievably slowly and I can’t find out what’s causing it.

    It can take ten minutes or more to start up. Today I had 69 apps that needed updating and that took about 6 hours over WiFi. I have a strong WiFi connection and my download speeds are pretty good - around 240 Mb/s wired and around 40+ Mb/s wireless.

    I bought this a a reconditioned item about a year ago, to run a specific app with my Canon DSLR. I’m mostly a Mac user so Android is a foreign country to me. But I understand that this is a fast little tablet so I’m all the more puzzled by the issue. I have tried a newer Android phone with the same applications and it’s very fast at updating apps and running generally on my home WiFi network.

    My Nexus 7 has around 19 GB of storage available out of a total of 28.17 GB total.

    Can anyone please suggest some way to benchmark my Nexus 7 so that I can try to identify if it’s some kind of settings issue or maybe a fundamental hardware problem?

    Welcome to Android Central! The 2012 Nexus 7 was known to get pretty sluggish with later updates. Have you tried a factory reset yet? You might also consider reflashing the stock firmware: How to manually update your Nexus | Android Central
