General Slowness after OTA-6 update


Hello list,
bq 4.5, r25.
I am experiencing some general slowness after the OTA-6 update.

This is particularly visible with freezes when scrolling in apps and when
changing between scopes (Apps -> Today <-> Near By <-> News) and when
opening apps (this is _extremely_ slower than OTA-5).

To reproduce the freeze in apps (webapps like Facebook (unofficial), or
proper apps like browser, it's the same), scroll slowly down the page, then
a bit faster up and then down again to go back where you where.

To reproduce in scopes just move from one to the other and/or down.

What happens, in order, is
1) freeze of the interface for some seconds (no scroll, no swipe from any
2) wait, wait...
3) unfreeze and all what you have tried in 1) is done
4) if you are on a page in the browser it goes blank, if you are on
everything else (scope, web-apps, ...) usually this results only in a big
jump around with no other harm.

It is really annoying seeing this huge regressions in user exeprience from
one OTA to the other :S

Any help investigating?
