it's almost impossible for cloud and lag-free to happen at the same time

1. Same UI for Android and iOS which is not "Ok".. I like iOS 7 UI, but I run Android and I want a Holo design, not a copy-paste app from the App Store to the Play Store!(and these is not only for Dropbox, but for other lazy developers, too!!)
2. I don't use Dropbox, but rather Google Drive and G+ Photos have auto-backup from a long time..

Auto backup is why I have used OneDrive since windows phone 7. Google drive is nice though, used it on the note 3, but from what I have found it is not very 'simple' in terms of set it and forget it at the start of the phone.

As of right now, while you want a holo design, simple matter of the fact is that apple makes more cash for devs, as a result expect copy and paste.

In the reviews I've seen only Samsung's gallery lags. In my experience Google+ is the king of seamless backuping and has zero impact on gallery performance.
