I wanted to know if android storage low,does it affect an app performance?Because same app is fast on another device and same is pretty much lagging on another one which has like 2GB of free memory from 12GB of memory.So they both on same device and i just was wondering should it be considered to the lack of storage or its something wrong with my app?

2 GB of free memory (what you have) is good enough for any small or mid-sized app to perform alright. Problems may occur it the app is highly resource intensive and has a lot of run-time graphics load/unload. You should try checking and optimizing your app if it falls under the first category.

Here are a few official performance tips that might help you: 

Avoid Creating Unnecessary Objects
Prefer Static Over Virtual
Use Static Final For Constants
Avoid Internal Getters/Setters
Use Enhanced For Loop Syntax
Consider Package Instead of Private Access with Private Inner Classes
Avoid Using Floating-Point
Know and Use the Libraries
Use Native Methods Carefully
Use Native Methods Judiciously
