anything with only 8gb of nand gets sluggish when it fills up but its really bad on android devices because basically half the nand is taken up by os. If you have kodi installed make sure you use a maintenance cleaner and clean all the temp files/cache and especially old thumbs. This gets real bad if you use addons as they scrape while you browse.jonnyk9 wrote: ↑Nov 12th, 2017 1:04 amI have a fire TV stick and gen 1 and gen 2 boxes. I used to love them but they are becoming so sluggish. Their updates get pushed and it really slows them down. And I think you need to root to stop the auto updates. It's really becoming unbearable. I'm hoping to invest in the Nvidia Shield.
Also Uninstall any apps you don't use or clear their cache in app settings. The goal free up space
eg# Disable and clear the firetv HD image screen savior you don't need it nor even need to waste your bandwidth downloading random hd photos that fill up.
