My guess is that a two year old system necessarily slows down (every computer does 2 years after first use). Computers collect a lot of files over the time, but often don’t dispose of them, if they are not used anymore. My FP1 also is slowing down and I’m thinking about a hard reset when I have more time (e.g. in February).
The Storage Upgrade must have come in August 2014, so 1,5 years ago. I think I also did my last hard reset back then. I stayed Google free after the Storage Upgrade, but I do experience a slow down of the phone, when calling someone (the calling screen comes up only after some seconds).
Just to jump on this, I’m getting general slow behaviour (particularly on e.g. switching between apps have white screen for 5s, power button sometimes doesn’t turn screen on etc). Any tips beyond a hard reset?
I’m using google heavily and not keen to do things like root/remove google etc, just want a phone that works smoothly!
