I was quite a delighted owner of Nexus 7 2013 32GB, but then this NASTY issue raised its ugly head. The issue is after using tablet for some time, scrolling in various apps becomes painfully slow & jerky.

I though it could be TRIM issue despite the fact that I have more than 20GB free. I tried almost everything. I factory reset it multiple times. No help.

Then did a fresh Install of CM, still issue wasn't resolved. Factory reset it multiple times, but to no avail. Then reverted back to Stock 4.4.4 after flashing Factory image through Fastboot, but sh** happened again. Reset it, did fresh install of PA ROM, but this freaking issue just doesn't go away.

I had more than 20GB free on all occasions. I also used "Lag fix" app from Play Store, but it didn't help either. Is this a TRIM issue? Did you experience this issue at all?

Scrolling in "Fenix for Twitter, "Robird", "Talon" & Official Twitter itself is atrocious. Play Store suffers heavily too. Situation in Chrome & Gmail app is slightly better, but quite sluggish nonetheless. To be honest, any app that has list view scrolling suffers from slow framerate sluggish scrolling.

Worst part is it seems I'm the only one who's suffering from this kind of issue. I'll now flash a 4.3 based ROM as all ROMs I tried till now are 4.4.4 based. Maybe it has something to do with this specific version of Android.

Only reason I bought it over LG G Pad 8.3 was timely OS updates, which ironically is giving me all the trouble that I never anticipated even in my dream.

I think those lag fix apps just run these commands:

su
fstrim -v /data
fstrim -v /cache
fstrim -v /system

Run them yourself in a terminal and see what happens.

Tried that too. But this lag is chronic. Twitter apps suffer from it the most. There is no lag while switching between apps or navigating the operating system. It's ONLY the scrolling that suffers.

Asus got to be the ****tiest Nexus OEM by far. It seems like every second guy is having some sorts of issue. Their quality control is almost non existent.
People thought first gen Nexus 7 was problematic, but only Asus could have managed to screw up the second generation Nexus 7 as they did.
