    Hi guys,
    My wife loves her Nexus 7 2012. Wouldn't let me buy her a 2013 version because she had it "just so" and liked it.
    However, last night she received the Lollipop update OTA and installed it.. it's a total disaster! It is now so slow - and I really do mean slow, not just laggy - to respond to swipes or taps (like, 2 seconds!!) that it's virtually unusable. Two apps that she's tried last night no longer work and it's randomly resetting itself this morning.
    Please, for your own sakes, DON'T install the OTA update until someone figures what's going on - I'm hoping there will be a quick fix issued once Google realise what's wrong.

    Mine was lagging, but I cleared the system cache, done a factory reset and its now running fine.

    I do have an inkling that the Google Now launcher is misbehaving now and again but I predominantly use Nova anyway.

    My wife's device had an OTA update and ran perfectly straight off the bat.

    Same thing here. I did a factory reset as well and it helped a little. Still much slower than it was before though.

    Hi Frankenhooker,
    Thanks for the reply. I'm tempted to try that. Am I correct in thinking that a factory reset will wipe all storage though? I'll wait a couple of weeks then if no fix comes along I guess it's the only option.
    Ironically I was thinking of buying her a Nexus 9 at Christmas but this has left a bad taste and I just don't feel like giving Google any more money... I'll probably get her a Yoga 2 instead.

    Just got the OTA update and installed all ok. Performance NOT degraded and may be a bit faster/smoother.

    I had the same issues but a factory reset fixed them all. Feels like a brand new tablet and the reset is very smooth under lollipop. Only downside is that I lost an app that is no longer available in the Google play store.

    5.0 has trashed my N7 as well did the install last evening and now Chrome will not work everything is slow or it just freezes. It has shut itself down 4 or 5 times needing a restart. My 7 is bog standard not routed and not messed with and had almost 15G of free space. at the moment I am thinking iPad so f***ing peed off...would someone remind me how to do a factory reset please?

    Performance on mine is also terrible now
    Takes a few seconds to get any response, apps take a few minutes to load, prompting me to report error or wait, just leaving them and they do open though
    returning back to home page after using an app I have to wait a few minutes before I can do anything, otherwise launcher crashes

    going to leave it a few days see if it gets better, do not want to reset and have to set all apps up again

    One thing I have noticed is that video clips on the BBC news website news.bbc.co.uk will play ok in chrome but now fail to run in Firefox.

    Thanks for this. My Nexus 7 (2012) was running like a dog anyway and I was looking towards Lollipop to fix it. Maybe not! Lollipop will not be allowed anywhere near my Nexus 4 though, which is running beautifully and is going to stay that way. Testing, I'm sure they've heard of it...

    Problem solved with Firefox. Updated to Firefox Beta version 34.0 and now video clips play ok.
