We want to make the most out of smartphone and in doing so, we sometimes mess around with things that slow down our device. Here are the links to Part-I, Part-II and Part-III of the series. These are some more tips that might help your smartphone to work just fine:
Rooting your device
Rooting your phone will introduce you to a wide variety of locked system settings that will able you to modify them according to yourself. You can change the clock speed of your processor, get a better grasp of battery management and a lot many more things. You can tweak around as much as you want to, be it customization or performance. Though it is not advisable because it will probably void your warranty and those settings have been locked for a reason.
Use Custom ROMs
Some UI’s can be heavy on the system such as Samsung’s TouchWiz. So what you can do is, install custom ROMs on your smartphone that are lightweight, clean and have more functionality. Always download from a trusted site and developer. To do so, you’ll have to unlock your bootloader which will void the warranty of your device.
Don’t keep activities
Under developer options, you can select Don’t keep activities. Once you’ve hit that home button, the process will terminate and your application will no longer continue from the state that you left it in. It will open again from the start by refreshing itself.
Free up your RAM
Though not advisable, your RAM should be cleared once in a while. It will close all the applications running except the standard background Android applications. It shouldn’t be done regularly but only in worst case scenarios.
Lighter versions of apps
Try and use lighter versions of applications as they take up less space and our memory friendly; they will consume less resources. Lite versions of heavy apps such as Facebook and Messenger are available. They cut up on a few animations and graphics that helps it utilize less memory and space.
Think before you install
Try not to install applications from unknown sources. The developers might not be trusted and may use or leak your data. Almost all the applications on the Play Store are authentic with exception of some. Google removes them time and again and now, Google has introduced Google Play Protect that will monitor and remove potentially harmful applications from your device.
Corrupt SD card
If your phone’s memory can be expanded via microSD expansion, the problem may lie within the memory card too. If you’re sensing some problem with your memory card, it may be possible that it is corrupt. You can fix it by formatting the card and then using it again.
Keep the apps you use
Remove apps that you don’t use as they will take up space and memory which you do not want. It’s better to uninstall them then to have them lying around if they do not serve any purpose.
Clear your notifications
Having a cluttery notification panel is a pain in the back, but it can also slow your phone down. So while checking your phone, keep in mind to clear your notifications while at it. Every time you unlock your phone, you load all of those notifications too; that is data from different applications that will eventually consume memory.
