I share you opinion about our device.The overall performance of this device isn't what you expect from a modern device, due to outdated hardware (4 kernels @ 1.5 GHz max, only 2GB RAM etc). But it is still much better than stock as far as I remember (I switched ~5 years ago). I'm running it with Kernel Adiutor to boost CPU which makes it OK to work with. Only thing that's a bit annoying for me is that it takes up to a minute to be truly responsive when woken up from a longer sleep period. Well, we all get old, don't we?
What I still like about it is it's battery. I don't watch TV or videos on it so I'm still having up to 5 days going from 80% down to 15%. Really not bad for a 9 year old device!
Though things that distract me: long app installation due to very slow internal storage and insufficient RAM which leads to killing apps, as only browser with several tabs can consume all available RAM.
Though for slow paced usage (reading of books, casual games, watching movies, some photo editing, light surfing) it's quite ok. Battery life is also good, though it depends on how many cycles battery had during it's lifespan, so mileage can vary.
BTW, can your share your Kernel Adiutor settings (like what governers are you using for CPU&GPU and maybe some storage tweaks if you have them)?
