It's not messing around with your hardware. It's just more optimised software. A custom kernel will be being used, which will have increased scheduling, better memory throughput optimisation and increased I/O access. This also means faster charging times. The ROM itself will be more streamlined as well. It's normal to experience these things with a custom ROM. It's what makes using custom ROMs so good with the improvements they bring over stock.
Ok. Thanks for the info. I am going to keep my tablet stock for right now.

I like the specs of the Nexus 7, but it doesn't have a Micro SD card slot which is one feature I like about my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Also, there have been a lot of quality complaints with the Nexus 7 which makes me not want to recommend it. I continue to recommend the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 because it doesn't have these quality issues.

I'd say go for it. The 8GB model has an amazing price for the specs of it. And not too much more for the 16GB model. It's a great tablet for the 7" market, and if you're looking at getting a tablet then it's certainly one to pick up. When I can, I'm gonna look at picking one up for a new toy to play with.

Yeah, the missing micro SD slot is a problem. That is my complaint about the RiM Playbook also - I really like that one. Have to study the Galaxy 2.7.0. Is that a 7"?

Thanks for the info. Sorry I was too lazy to find out myself. But now I looked at a couple of reviews. Those were kind of lukewarm.

The reviews for the Galaxy Tab were lukewarm or were the reviews for the Nexus 7 lukewarm? Most of the reviews for the Galaxy Tab have been positive. A lot of the lag reviewers mention has been fixed by Samsung. There have been two updates released for y tab since I bought it.

If you want a real good tablet for heavy gaming, then get the Nexus 7. If you aren't going to be playing very heavy games most of the time, the Galaxy Tab is really good. I play games like Riptied GP, Temple Run, and Raging Thunder 2 and they all perform pretty well on it. They aren't going to be as smooth as they would be on the Nexus 7, but they are playable and I enjoy playing those games on my Tab.

I don't game at all - not even hearts, LOL. I am just looking for a toy for on the road (email, internet, my music and video files), and maybe a mobile navigation help.

Do you care about having a stock Android experience? If not, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 would be great for your needs. I can't and won't recommend the Nexus 7 until those quality control issues are fixed.
