Much was talked about Android's Scroll lag.. Let's talk about other lags..

This post is a response to Nexus 7 (2012) & Android KitKat flies like the wind!

Unfortunately my Nexus 7 never felt like flying at any moment, be it android 4.2 or 4.3 or 4.4.

Much was talked about android scrolling lag.. But the scrolling lag isn't as unpleasant as other android lags like..

* Keyboard lag

* Music player lag

* Software navigation button lag

Many claim Android is the king when it comes to multitasking.. But it isn't.. I always want to listen songs while playing basic games, but my Nexus 7 never allowed me to do that..

In the below video you can see how music players Play music & Poweramp struggle in the background while playing a basic game..

Almost all android music players lag while multitasking.. For the record, my "n" number of ex Symbian devices never lagged while music playback.

Google claims Kitkat is made keeping in mind the low end devices with 512 MB RAM, but the fact is it struggles with a quad core Nexus device which is equipped with 1GB of RAM.

Let's hope upcoming Android Ladoo eliminates these lags..

P.S. - In spite of all these lags, I still love my Nexus 7 and it is hands down the best tablet when it comes to value for money.
