After updating to 5.1.1 my Nexus 5 is slow as a duck. Excruciatingly slow google search, PlayStore, other functions. Hard to believe that an update can ruin my whole phone experience. Anyone know how to fix this slow as molasses behavior?
Just update 2012 Nexus 7 to 5.1.1 and it seems much better. Still a few slow screens, but I had pretty much given up on the device and now it seems usable again. I understand there was a bug fix in 5.1.1 to a memory leak issue, which could be the reason for the improvement. We'll see how long it lasts...
nexus 7 2012 lollipop 5.1.1, its useless now, battery charging problem has started. To charge from 10-100 took 9 hours, charger working perfect, but battery taking less current around ~200mA. Wiped cache will see behaviour, else try factory reset, last option battery replacement.
All this started after update!!!
did anyone update an Asus nexus 7 2012 mobile, to android 5.1.1?
How is it working? like a brick, as it was with 5.0.2 and 5.1.0? or much better, closer the kitkat version?
Thanks for any answer.
Revert to previous version. Lollipop on nexus 7 2013 is great, but nexus 7 2012 slows down too quickly. I have both versions & I'm reverting my 2012 back to previous. Of note: cyanogenmod was pretty impressive.
Rendered my nexus 7 2013 to a paper weight will be investing in an apple ipad google can go and do one as far as iam concerned
Finally the OTA update arrived on my Nexus 7 2012 WiFi version in India , too early to tell but I hope that stability improves.
Before this update my nexus 7 2012 was unusable it was so slow its nearly as fast as when it was new i am well made up.
After the update and getting 5.1.1 version...ugghhh its been hanging up and slowing my tablet compared to the old version....is there any possibility to reset the version back to the original??!??!
What a piece of trash. There should be a class action suit against Google. I bought my wife an Apple pad and have never crashed in 6 months.
"Well, I hope it undoes some of the damage 5.1 did."
Not really. It takes between 4 and 5 minutes to boot up, though once running it is perhaps a little smoother.
Athull, 07 May 2015This is a Nexus and the whole point of having one is to get to uninterrupted android updates a... moreTotally agree;have nexus because I expect Google to support their devices....it was ready for the trash heap before two upgrades? How sad that a device is ancient before then. Just downloaded 5.1.1, but already seems exponentially better..it had been a virtual brick, and you can bet I flamed Google with every service report! Ty..I think/hope...
Have a Nexus 7 with mobile data (not wifi only). So it's not scheduled to get 5.1.1, yet.
Very unimpressed with 5.x.x. Don't seem to see any compelling reason to upgrade PLUS I hate the Material Design look and feel.
Am considering going back to 4.4.4 if I can figure out how to tell it to "leave me alone" about upgrading to 5.X.
My Nexus 7 (2012) is dead in the water. Cannot do a factory reset, nor a reboot. Lollipop has turned my Nexus into a brick.
I installed the update to my 2012 32GB Nexus 7 yesterday. I have gone from having a decent wifi signal when switched on to one that is effectively non-existent. Not pleased at all. Any suggestions? So fed up after the original KitKat to Lollipop fiasco, that rendered the entire tablet useless until Google eventually provided a fix.
Actually I'm finding 5.1.1 is the biz on my 2012 N7!
Under 5.1 it was still freezing and massivly slow at times whereas now it seems to whiz along. I only hope the experience is long lived.
My nexus 7 was in a snail mode when installing the first edition of lolly pop freezing up most of the time but along came 5.1.1 and it seems to have fixed the problem as I still love my nexus after being it in 2012 and will carry on using it for many more years
