Tab 2 slow speeds?

First Poster

Hello everyone,

 

A long time ago, I bought a samsung galaxy tab 2, and ever since then the quality of it has decreased rapidly, there is lag on every single function, including getting the notification bar down... I am one of the biggest samsung fans, and have loved their products. I have tried resetting it to factory default, no change, I don't really know what else I can do... any help will be appreciated!! Thanks!!

Hello Karthik!

 

Is all the software up to date on you Tab 2? Do you have many apps installed? 

 

Try deleting the cache, go into Settings > Application > Application Manager > the app > Clear Cache.

 

Do this to all you apps to ease any lag. 

 

Let us know if this helps. :smileyhappy:

 I got a response saying that I should go through every single app in the app manager and then clear the cache, but I have already tried resetting, after a couple of days it goes back to its usual slow speeds, next time I go into town I am going to take it with me and show them, with the hope they have something magical up their sleeves. If I find any other solutions I will post here. Good luck and have a wonderful rest of ur week. 

Thanks

Hi @Millsy.

 

How much memory do you have on it? Apps > Settings > Storage.

I did a factory reset on mine and had the same results. The internet is too slow to use. This has to be Samsung purposfully bricking out tablets. I have since replaced mine with an apple tablet. I do not like the functions but they don't treat their customers like that.

I own 2 of the same Samsung Tab 2 10.1's. They both do it. Even after a full restore, throw "clearing the cache" out the window on a new install. It has to be code on the devices slowing it down after a certain age, just like Apple did to all of their customers (purposely slowing down older devices due to battery age). They "claimed" it was to preserve hardware. They were sued and lost the case - 27 million dollars. Anyways, 1 of 2 things; 1.) Samsung purposely put an update out that made older hardware run slower or 2.) The device has over-heated way too many times and we (everyone that owns a Tab 2) are having hardware failure, specifically the processor.

Note: I will install a linux distrubution on it, run benchmarks then compare with the stock OS. This will prove if it is software related.
