tips to make android run faster

One most common issue with Android OS, in particular, is that the OS tends to feel slow after a couple of months of use and the most searched query by Android users is that how to make Android smartphones run faster? It very irritating when you buy a high-end smartphone with high performance and features, but still you are not getting smooth and speedy performance as you expected. Phones with mediocre hardware and functionalities are even more prone to stuttering and lag. Here, in this article, we will discuss how to speed up that Android performance so that you can use your device efficiently by reducing the lags and freezes as much as possible.

A Simple Restart Can Bring Pace To Your Android Device

Sometimes, what your smartphone only needs is a simple restart. Like our computers, restarting smartphones can also help make their way through hard times. When you reboot your android device, it deletes all the temporary files open on your device and cleans up the RAM. And this is how it increases the performance of your device.

Keep Your Phone Updated

Every newer version of Android contains bug fixes and comes with lots of performance improvements. So, it is vital to keep your device update as it can help your device to run better. However, to update your device, go to Settings > About device > Software update and check for updates. Similarly, go to Playstore and make sure that all of your apps are also up to date.

Uninstall and Disable Apps That You Don’t Need

Every app on your Android device uses some amount of memory. As every device has limited memory space, it is advisable to keep only those apps that you use. The apps which you never use and still reside in your device do nothing except taking up space on your device and potentially eating into system resources. To see the list of apps on your device, go to Settings > Apps and swipe over to the All tab. Here, all the apps will be listed, look and identify the apps which you don’t need. Tap on that particular app, and then choose Uninstall. In case, if the uninstall option is not there, then tap Disable. 

Clean Up Your Home Screen

Placing live wallpaper on your home screen along with widgets looks good, but it puts an extra load and impacts the performance of your device. It is better to replace your live wallpaper with a static image and remove all the unused icons and widgets. The less cluttering on the home screen is going to increase the performance of your device.

Clear Cached App Data

Cached data for apps help them load more quickly by making the app load faster by pulling the data from the cache. However, there are some apps which you don’t use regularly. In that case, it is recommended to delete the cached data for those apps. It will free up much space by removing the old data. Doing this not only enhances the device performance but also the app can keep newer versions of the old cached data.

Free Your Internal Memory

Nowadays, you can store all your data in the cloud. Doing this makes your data accessible on all devices and also frees up the internal memory. That memory can be used some other app on your device and also help in increasing the performance of your device.

Try To Use Lite Versions of Apps

Many popular applications, such as Facebook, Twitter offers a lite version for their apps. Using lite version apps improve the performance of the device and also reduce your data usage. Lite version apps are the best if you own a smartphone with not much memory and budget hardware. 

Install Apps From Known Sources

Many Android apps look useful, but in reality, they are fake and want to take control of your device and steal valuable data. So, it is always better to install the apps only from known and trusted sources like Google Play Store. Also, you can enable this in the setting for the future.

Turn off or Reduce Animations

One other way to make your Android device faster is by reducing animations. However, to do this, you need to enable the Developer Options in your device. To enable the Developer options, go to Settings > About Phone and tap the build number seven times. It will enable the developer option in your device. Now, you can disable or reduce the animations. Here, you can adjust the Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale. Doing this will reduce the time used in rendering the visual effects on the screen.

Reset Your Device

In case, if you feel that all the above steps are not much help for you, then you can perform a factory reset on your device. You can reset your Android device in 2 ways:

  1. Going to Settings: You can go to Settings and click on the factory reset option present there. By this method, you can perform a soft reset on your device, which involves resetting device settings and wiping all the data, including your photos, videos, apps, and cache.
  2. Via Hard Reset: If you want deeper cleaning of your device, then you can go for this method. In this, you will need to boot into recovery mode and hard reset the device. After turning off your device, press the Power and Volume Down button together to get into the recovery mode. This is not for all smartphones, but it works in most of the cases. 

However, always keep in mind to back up all your data before resetting your device.

The ways to speed up your device are not only limited to these; there are many more. These are some essential tips that you can do to speed up your Android device.
