The new Nexus 7 hasn’t made the original tablet completely redundant – in fact, some owners of the first-generation Android tablet are finding that it is now quicker than before thanks to Android 4.3.

On a recent Reddit post, numerous Nexus 7 owners admitted that installing the new Android 4.3 on their device made it a lot quicker than before.

Previously, original Nexus 7 owners would see their device slowdown as the tablet got filled with NAND flash files. However, Android 4.3 now reportedly features TRIM -- a tool which instructs the flash storage controller when to collect or delete data – making this less of a problem.

The new Nexus 7 was announced last week and sports a better screen, a more powerful processor and runs Android 4.3 right out of the box. The tablet also supports dual-facing cameras and wireless charging.

The second-generation Nexus 7 starts at $199 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only edition and rises to $329 for the 32GB LTE model.
