Default Galaxy Nexus lagging immensely.

Hey guys. I borrowed my brother's old Galaxy Nexus while my HTC One is being repaired and I couldn't help noticing it lags. Immensely. I flashed SlimKat build 3 on it and before that I ran LiquidSmooth. I was under the impression that KitKat was supposed to be less resource hungry.

Is it because it's not "official" (from Google)? Would 4.3 run better, say in the form of CM10.2.1 stable?

The unfortunate reality is that most Galaxy Nexus units have sluggish internal storage, and any background processes that are trying to write to it while you interact with the phone can create lag in processing and the UI. It was such a relief to switch to the Nexus 5.

I flashed back to 4.3. CM10.2 stable and now it runs better but still lagging. Not as much, though.

Let me know how it is.running slimkat right now and I'm getting pretty much decent performance. We all have to remember this phone is older. I've been trying to justify getting the nexus 5. Will wait until the price comes down a little bit

It's just the phone. My work phone is a gnex bone stock. And it lags horribly.

This thread is active again. I thought I could get my One yesterday but Telecare messed up and sent me one that had even more tint than before, so I'm stuck with this until after May 9th because my carrier store closes for renovation between April 22nd and May 9th..

C'est la vie.
