Exclamation Nexus 5 slow down!

Hi,

recently i have noticed my Nexus 5 acting strangely. A couple of tasks have become very slow while the rest of the phone is fine.

Taking pictures normally is fine but when I try to take a HDR now it will take one, take an age to process it and will lock up the camera in the mean time.

Also taking a screenshot takes an age, first theres a delay then it takes long for it to save.

Finally when i come out of an app to the home screen's there is a 2-3 second phase where all it shows is the wallpaper and nothing else.

Other general use and using apps etc seems fine. Iv tried restarting but noting changed.

Anybody else having similar issues? any solutions to this.

Easiest fix is probably just backing up your apps and data with titanium backup and clean flashing the firmware again. Should weed out any troubles.

And give you a fresh clean start.

Just don't erase your internal SD.

yh your probably right, by clean flashing the firmware, do you mean factory reset.

You can try factory reset.

But I actually meant flash the firmware with fastboot.

If you have custom recovery, you can also try just wiping cache and dalvik cache first.

I've never used stock recovery on any device for anything. Lol

But good to know. 👌
