I've seen reports here and there online where users have reported similar frustrations. Has anyone had success fixing whatever issue is crippling the tablet after upgrading to Android 5 (Lollipop)?View original question
After upgrading my Nexus 7 from Android 4 to 5.1, it is so slow as to be unusuable. What can I do to make it usable again?

I do not own a nexus 7. However, my moto g was slower when I upgraded to L. It seems that booting in recovery mode and wiping the cache helps a lot. You can google for the specific instructions for nexus 7. I just finished wiping cache on my phone. It definitely is snappier.

I had the same problem and did the following. Switching back from a Material keyboard back to Holo drastically improved performance.
- Open the Settings menu on your device.
- Under "Personal," touch Language & Input.
- Under "Keyboard & input methods," touch the Settings icon next to "Google Keyboard."
- Touch Appearance & Layouts.
- Touch Theme.
- Select either Holo White or Holo Blue.
Changing your animation speeds may not be as effective as switching to a holo keyboard, but can slightly improve your tablet's performance: (whether this is psychological or not has yet to be proven)
- Open Settings
- Tap on About Phone
- Find Build Number and tap on it repeatedly until a message which says "you are now a developer" appears.
- Go back to the main menu in Settings
- You will now have an option called Developer Options . Open that.
- Enable Developer Options by tapping the slider on the top right
- Find Window Animation Scale in developer options, and tap it
- Select .5x (or you could just turn them off completely)
- Do the same to Transition Animation Scale and Animator Duration Scale

I did a factory data reset and everything is running much more smoothly:
Backup and Reset >
Factory Data Reset
I had to log back in and reinstall my apps. This wasn't too onerous in my case since my tablet usage is limited mainly to the Amazon Kindle and Pandora apps.
