If you haven’t updated your Android phone to the latest firmware, you should. Google brings great improvements to each new release of the Android operating system, including updates that ensure stability, higher performance speed and connectivity along with other user-friendly new features.
UPDATE YOUR APPS
You should regularly update your phone’s installed apps from Google Play. Try to get updates your apps when they are available in Google Play. Developers fix bugs and add features in new released versions of apps. Updated apps perform better and faster, and will less likely crash your phone.
UNINSTALL UNWANTED APPS
Every app you install in your phone take some storage space and runs some background processes.
The more storage space occupied or the more background processes running on your phone, the slower your phone’s performance.Don’t install apps you hardly use. Keep only the apps that you need and if you have got an app that isn’t really useful, you can uninstall or disable it.
USE LESS WIDGETS
Widgets are not apps, which only run once you choose to activate them. No, widgets are always running in the background; they are active all the time.Lots of widgets can cause your smartphone to run a bit slower than it could normally. Also realize that live widgets, or widgets that update frequently such as different weather widgets, can cost you more performance than some of the more stationary widgets. That being said, take a look at your widgets and maybe consider taking some of them off, or changing the update settings of your live widgets to less frequent.
LIVE WALLPAPERS = NO!
Live wallpapers slow down your smartphone, especially those running older hardware.Phones (from different manufacturers) come with different live wallpapers.But live wallpapers that are badly made will need more CPU cycles to run, thus draining the battery faster.
MANAGE GOOGLE SERVICES
An Android device automatically includes access to Google services including Books, Contacts, Currents, Gmail and Google+. A normal android user does’nt require all of these services,so turn them off and save from the trouble of downloading more data.
TURN OFF ANIMATIONS
Confused with the term animations?your phone screen actually fades out and in as you switch from one task to the other. To see this in action Go to Settings > Developer Options > Window Animation Scale > Animation scale 10x. Then choose Window Animation Scaleagain to see the fade in effect in ‘slow-mo’.When you choose Animation off, the screen just snaps to position without animation. You can also turn off Transition Animation Scale in the same way. If you are a heavy user, you’d probably notice that your Android performs faster with all animations off.
USE A TASK KILLER
Download any free Task Killer apps or TaskManagers from Google Play. Some of the good ones are Advanced Task Killer and Super Task Killer Free. Use a task killer to kill background processes and other apps that you don’t need or you don’t use.Set options to automatically kill unnecessary apps (based on your selections) after every set period of time.
Android phones are till now the best in class and mostly prefered by people around the globe. No matter what your phone specs are, these android phones eventually starts to slow down.If you follow the above steps you can actually boost you android performance and its battery as well!
