    The performance on my shield tablet has degraded over time. When I am in graphically demanding games it works just fine, I more mean things like waking from sleep or using the browser and things like that. Every once in a while it struggles so badly it finally just reboots.

    Is this an anomaly or are others seeing this? (wifi only model)... using a 64gb microsd to store most of my videos and large games.

    Thinking of doing a factory reset if it keeps this up.

    Try wiping the cache partition, which won't erase any personal data. Follow the steps in this linkg, but instead of selecting Wipe Data/Factory Reset, make sure you select Wipe Cache Partition. When complete, then select Reboot System Now.

    Woah I'll have to try that. Been putting up with the same intermittent issue for a while now.

    Thanks.

    I just tried this as well. I have noticed a number of programs run very slow and the machine freezing. It seems weird that a machine with a supposedly fast processor is always bogged down...just powered up and it seems like it is instantly peppier. I hope this continues. Thank you.

    Just like your Android phone, a tablet gets loaded down with junk over time in the cache partition. As B. Diddy suggested a cache wipe always seems to do the trick. Its a habit I make with any of the my android devices to perform usually once a month just to clean things up.

    This is an issue that plagues every Android tablet or phone sooner or later. The best thing to do is a factory reset, install all of your apps again, than backup up the system. Going foward save all of your files onto a SD card. Than once a month just do complete wipe, restore using your backup and your back in business. Their are a couple of custom recoverys that provide these functionality.

    I have the same problem. I feel like the Shield tablet is particularly bad at any sort of multitasking. Run a single app like a game and it runs great. As soon as you start switching apps, it falls apart. Part of it may be app specific, because I've definitely noticed an improvement when I switched from Chrome to Firefox. On the other hand, I've never had to wipe the cache on any other Android device except this one to restore performance.

    I haven't felt the need to wipe the cache on my Shield Tablet yet but won't be surprised if I do at some point. I have needed to do that multiple times on my Nexus 5, usually after a software update. I really don't have any complaints about the current performance of my Shield Tablet.
