You used to love your Android phone, but now that it has slowed down considerably, the bloom is off the rose. When you hit the home button or launch a new app, it takes what seems like an eternity to switch to the new task or back to the desktop. Maybe your device has become so slow that letters appear a second or two after you type them. Fortunately, you can speed up your phone with some simple tips.
Android devices have a tendency of getting old. And not only in the physical way, prolonged usage can also take a toll on performance, making it seem like you need to upgrade your phone sooner than you thought. What gives? Well, you may be able to save your smartphone by performing a few tricks that can push your handset forward, possibly making it as snappy as the first day you turned it on.
Here are a few steps to take when your android phone is running slow:
4. Delete and Disable Apps You are Not Using.
Like me, you probably have way too many apps on your smartphone. We all download applications without even thinking about it. After some testing we realize they are no good, and it’s normal to simply forget about these applications and leave them roaming around the app drawer.
This is fine when you have a lot of storage, but some may need to save that precious space. Not to mention, this software may be running in the background at times. Unused apps are definitely resource hogs, so just get rid of them! You can do this by using the app manager in your settings, or by long-pressing apps in your drawer and dragging them to the “Uninstall” section.
5. Create Space on The Memory Card.
Some android phone users use memory cards with their android phones. If you are using a memory card with your android phone, you may want to check the memory and clear it as well.
6. Re-boot Your Phone.
At times the solution to the slowness of your phone is just a simple re-boot. Try re-booting. It may help.
