I have an original 6 GB Nexus 7 and I am disappointed with its performance which shows up two ways (1) I can't stream Amazon Prime movies, and (2) it is very sluggish while for several minutes after awakening. I am running Android 4.4.4.
1. I usually can't stream Amazon Prime movies. I generally get the message that my network connection is too slow. My network download speed regularly measures in access of 20 Mbps and I have no problem with my Roku stick.
2. When the Nexus 7 resume from sleep state it is very slow for several minutes after which it seems more responsive to gestures but still not good.
I speculate that there are a number of background processes that are thrashing to make sure things are up to date thereby robbing resources from the foreground process. I have wiped the Cache partition and have 1.86 GB of storage available and 386 MB RAM. I have a vision of Google Mail, Google+, Google Keep, Google Play, and who knows what other Google apps all fighting to be sure that I can instantly access up-to-date data. Possibly, DropBox, Chrome, Firefox, NYTimes, and Flipboard are also constantly sync-ing as well. Is there any way of checking my suspicions? Is there any way of telling the various app to give me a break and sync when I actually open them?
I would really like to correct this problem; it would really make the Nexus more satisfactory. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks, In Advance
