After the update to Android 4.2, many users of the Nexus 7 have experienced major lag issues, with no real fix or explanation for the occurrence. Neither ASUS or Google have acknowledged any issue, which isn’t a shock, but that hasn’t stopped one member of XDA to dig for a solution. 

During his research, he discovered that Google’s Currents app could be the culprit. With tons of forum members supporting the post and even users on Reddit stating that the fix has worked like a dream, here’s what you can do to fix the alleged lag on your Nexus 7.

  4. Tap “Settings”
  5. Uncheck “Enable Background Sync”
  6. Reboot your Nexus 7
