Mostly downloading, blog/social media posting, photo editing, nothing fancy but I prefer multitasking.
Also, I would like to try a ROM that gives me a snappier feel, but the problem is I have multiple user profiles (Wife, daughter, myself) and would hate to lose their settings/files. So what would be the easiest route to doing this?
I've seen various posts about how people use their tablets but I just don't use it due to the ease of use of having my computer at the ready.
I was in the same boat as you. I didn't use my Nexus 7 at all, because over the year after I got it, it began to slow down tremendously. It was laggy, and just very unpleasant to use. But then, I read about this thing called F2FS, which basically formats the N7 in a different way, making it much faster and much more optimized. Unfortunately, with formatting comes the erasing of data. To be clear, all pictures, movies, apps, etc., stored on you N7 are deleted during this process. It formats your internal memory. But for me, it was so worth it. With a KitKat ROM and an optimized kernel, and of course with the F2FS formatting, my N7 flies again. I highly recommend it.
