I have the newest Fire HD 8 and it has been very slow and laggy lately. When I do anything the screen will go black for about 10 seconds before the app starts running. Same thing happens when I try to stream video or scroll through the home screen, etc.

I have google play store installed and also terrarium, and IPVanish. Other than that, I have taken off everything else. when I use the speedtest app, i get the same black screen and it takes forever to start running although when it does, i get a fast connection with the vpn on or off.

i have tried looking around these forums and a few other places but cannot find anything that really seems to answer the question. i wish I could root this tablet but that does not appear to be an option.

any advice/help would be appreciated, at this point I am thinking of doing a factory reset or just buying a better tablet. thanks for the help.

You paid 50 for a tablet what do you expect?

This tablet performs decently (for its price tag) out of the box, but once you install the Google services it slows down terribly. I've got the same problem. I loved this tablet because its price mainly, but this lagging after installing Google Play is just unbearable.

I use [Memory Booster - RAM Optimizer] to free up memory as needed and to manage apps from auto-start.

Awesome! It did work for me. Now it runs as smooth as this tablet can run. Thanks so much! I was looking for other cheap tablets but I now will stick to my Kindle Fire HD 8 for a bit longer. I think it's price can't still be beaten.

In the past week I have noticed the same. I'll give this a shot as well. Thanks!

Power off.
Hold the volume down and power buttons.
When the boot screen appears, release the power button.
Use the volume button to navigate to format cache.
Press the power button to select.
After formatting, reboot.

Thank you!
I usually see sluggishness around the 3rd day of being continuously on. Lets see how long this lasts.
