How To Boost And Optimize Your Android Phone

How To Boost And Optimize Your Android Phone
Slow performing Android can cause lots of problems and waste lots of time. Your device performance may start fading over time due to various reasons. One major reason which causes slow device performance is the accumulation of lots of unnecessary data on it. This data accumulates in the form of cache files, log files, temporary files, duplicate files and other junk files. This unnecessary data not only occupies precious storage space but it also affects device speed and performance negatively. Apart of it, there may be other reasons as well like bloatware, outdated device software, resource hungry apps and features, and other software and hardware issues. To do with all these issues and to boost and optimize your Android performance you can follow these steps.

Disable Bloatware:

Bloatware is an integral part of your phone which comes pre-installed in the form of apps and programs from the manufacturer’s end. These apps and programs may include items from the manufacturer based or third-party apps. Most of this bloatware include unnecessary apps and programs which you rarely use or intend to use them ever. Thus, the bloatware on your device only occupies precious storage space affecting device performance and speed negatively. Most of these apps also run in the background thus making device run slow. Unfortunately to get rid of this bloatware you need to root your device which comes with its own limitations. The next best option is to ‘Disable’ them so that they can’t run in the background, can’t update themselves or appear in the app drawer. To disable all such bloatware items, go to Settings of the device and head to Application Manager or Apps. Now open All Apps section by swiping screen right and select the app you want to disable. Now click on the “Disable” or “Uninstall” button to instantly stop running that app.

Clear App Cache:

Various apps on your device stores information related to your different tasks you perform using any app. This information is stored in the form of cache to help you perform same task in much lesser time next time. Cache data remain in your device which stores information like log-in details, temp files, preference settings, log files etc. All this cache data occupies storage space for no good reason most of the time. To remove complete cache files from your device, go to Settings > Storage > Cached data and press OK to instantly remove cache data. Alternatively, to clear cache of individual apps, go to Settings > Apps or Application Manager > All apps and select the app to clear cache data. Alternatively, you can try to use Android cleaner apps to clean all cache and other unnecessary files.

Update Your Device:

This is one of the most effective ways to keep your device performing well. With each software or OS update manufacturer offers some bug fixes, security patches, and performance boosters to improve your device performance. It helps you keep your device performance intact and provide better stability. Thus, it becomes important to update your device with each system update notification. Alternatively, you can look for available updates in device settings. To do this, go to Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update. Click on this option and you will find all recent updates for your device.

Avoid Animation & Live Wallpaper:

Animations and live wallpapers on your device make it look beautiful. Most of these animations and live wallpapers include features & effects which require more resources on device and more CPU cycles to run, which makes device run slower and affect performance negatively. Whenever you turn on or activate your device’s home screen it would require extra resources to run live wallpapers and animations. Thus, disabling all such features can help you improve your device performance.

To do this, make sure that the developer option is enabled on your device. To enable it, go to Settings > About Phone and tap several times on Build Number until it displays a message confirming developer option is activated (in some device you can find Developer options directly under Settings). Now go to Settings > Developer Options and scroll down to find three different features called Window Animation Scale, Transitions Animation Scale and Animator Duration Scale. Tap on each of the animation options and turn them off. Do not forget to leave the Developer Options turned on to keep the animations disabled. Turning off the Developer Options will reset the animations settings to their default level.

Use High-Speed Memory Card:

Your device speed and performance get affected by cluttered and unorganized data. Thus, having additional storage space in the form of high-speed memory card can help you manage data on your device. This simple step can help you improve device speed and performance significantly. You can add memory to your device as per value it supports that may vary in between 2GB to 32GB to support high-speed read and write operations on your device. Additionally, try to choose memory cards of Class 6 or Class 10 for improved performance.

You can try these simple steps to boost and optimize your Android device performance significantly. Following these steps, you can also save your time and reduce efforts while performing any task on your device
