folks, I can't for the life of me find an answer to two recurring issues that have plagued me with Android devices, including my Nexus 5, a Moto X and now +OnePlus
1. First and most annoying is Google's Hangouts app which I love, but it's extremely slow when contacts are loading for a new chat and two when waiting to reply to a text chat (the cursor takes about 45 seconds to appear)
2. Homescreen slow down. Icons loading take 5 seconds.
The first two devices had been upgraded to Lollipop which I thought may be worthy of the blame, but now the 1+ is behaving the same and it's running Android 4.4.4. I've cleared the system cache, deleted app caches and hunted the forums to no avail. If you've been tagged in this post, you're on my Android geeks list.
