I recently got the update on my Nexus 7 (2013), and I think I probably need to do a factory reset. I have heard some others say it is a good idea to do that after getting such a big update, and I can believe that, but I have done one yet.

As it stands right now, my N7 was a little sluggish when I first got it, and has slowly improved. I still think I have a little lag right now.

I got it back in Nov 2014 on my 2012 Nexus 7 tablet which worked without any problems prior to my downloading the Lollipop 5.0. The tablet is pretty much useless now. I have had to do complete factory resets x 3 on it to make it work at all...and it is VERY sluggish, has taken my 'night clock' ability away (the screen times it out and that makes it useless to me). The battery drains in a few hours and it takes between 24-48 hours to charge back up to 100%, even with all the normal 'high battery users' off or as low as they go. I wish I had never added it to my Nexus 7. It is just junk now, to me.

Are you running 5.0 or 5.01? 5.01 has a memory leak issue. I had the same issues with my 2013 N7 on 5.01

You can revert to KitKat with a little work.

I finally started using my Nexus 7 after the update again. I had used it briefly a few times in the past few weeks and it seemed ok. I took it out today to use it for a while and it was so laggy and unresponsive that it was almost useless. I restarted it a couple of times with no improvement and then it wouldn't even connect to my wifi.

After looking around online a bit (on my laptop), this seems to be a common problem, this upgrade. I finally just did a factory reset. It seems better so far. I have wifi now and I logged into to my Google account. It seems to be working better in general now.

I'm investigating whether I want to try setting it back to KitKat. I'm not a techie and have no experience doing this so i'm still thinking about it, looking at tutorials.

The biggest improvements are the ART runtime (which was available previously, but had to be manually enabled) that improves performance significantly by pre-compiling apps and the user interfaced, which, at the first time, as succeeded iOS. A major benefit is that Apple finally has competition in the design space (besides the poorly marketed Windows Phone).

Maybe it is an improvement in some arbitrary meaning, but I get more annoying popups on my phone, and it became less user friendly.

Without an explanation this doesn't mean a whole lot.

I'm sure he is referring to the "improved" notification system which a lot of people do not like.

Hmm, haven't noticed anything like that, but it's easy enough to turn off/modify notifications on a per app basis.
