Your Android smartphone becomes weaker and slower with time? Don’t worry, it’s alright, as this OS wears off after some time, as any other OS. Some people even say that a smartphone is fully functional only for about 2 years, and then it has to be replaced for you not to suffer from its slow processing. But it’s not obligatory, as you can make your Android system work much faster with some simple tips.
Boosting an Android Smartphone
Learn more about your device.
You have to know what it can do and how fast it can perform. Read some information on your version of Android and its interactions with the phones like yours.
Update the version of your OS.
If available, make sure to update your Android smartphone to the newest version of the OS. This will fill your phone with new useful features and increase its performance.
Remove the apps you don’t use.
Whatever helpful the app is, if you don’t use it for a couple of months, make sure to get rid of it. If the game isn’t played for the same time, make sure to delete it too. These apps update, taking more and more space on the phone, and their work in the background mode may slow your phone down.
Disable useless apps.
If you feel like you’ll need the app but don’t use it now, just disable it. This won’t delete it, but will increase your Android smartphone’s working capacity. When you need the app, enable it, but don’t forget to disable after you’re done.
Your applications have to be updated to work correctly, as with these updates the software developers remove certain bugs and troubles that may even damage your phone’s system. Go to Google Play and update everything you can or set the apps to automatic update.
Use speedy memory cards.
Class 6 to 10 are high-speed memory cards that may make all the difference. When the initial memory of the device itself is low, you can compensate it with a powerful memory card, adding 2 to 32 GB of space to help your Android phone perform.
Remove unnecessary widgets.
Unlike apps, widgets work all the time, updating information and performing other processes. This may slow your phone down dramatically, so make sure to delete all the widgets you don’t need.
Say “no” to live wallpapers.
They may be incredibly beautiful, but in fact they use pretty much of your CPU. This makes the battery charge lower faster, and the phone processing slower. There are many beautiful non-live wallpapers you can use to enhance the beauty of your phone.
Keep the sync off.
Synching your Android smartphone with Google, for example, is pretty useful, as you have a storage of your data in the cloud, and whenever you get an email, your phone lets you know. But if you use sync with other services or you don’t really need even the Google sync, it’s better to turn it off, as it takes a lot of power from your phone to update.
Turn off animations.
There are minor animations your screen performs when switching from page to page, opening or closing apps, etc. Go to the Settings menu and find your screen animations there. There are many of those you don’t really need, so turn them off and you will see how fast is your phone.
These are the main ways to make your phone’s life easier if you don’t want to get too deep into the system of the device. In case nothing helps, make sure to take the phone to a service center to get all the newest updates and recommendations on the usage of your device.
