With more than 1 billion users around the globe, Android is the most popular mobile platform among smartphone users. Android stays at the top because it does a splendid job in managing applications, enhancing LJX experience, and ensuring great performance.
However, even the #1 software has its downtime and results in performance issues. Rather than blaming the system, the user plays a huge role in any performance issue in operating systems. Here are some of the most common yet most effective steps to fix performance issues in Android and speed up your phone.
- Minimize Multitasking
Multitasking is an effective way of switching between apps. To be more specific, Android comes with preemptive multitasking in which the CPIJ controls the context switch between apps. Despite CPU having control over other apps, opening multiple apps at the same time and switching between them is an easy task for users, not so easy for the CPLJ.
So, next time when you play a game, try closing all the other apps which are running in the background. You will notice a huge performance boost in your gaming experience.
- Monitor the Storage Space
Another important aspect that determines the performance is the storage space of the device. Approximately, Android occupies 25% of the internal storage for the system apps to run. Only the remaining percentage is left for users to download/ install files or packages.
The reason behind why an Android requires more internal space is that it improves the read/write cycles, enhances data processing, and reduces compatibility issues.
In simpler terms, the more the available internal space you have, the faster the phone can perform. Uninstall unwanted apps. Clear temporary memory (cache). To clear up cache, go to settings, click storage, and click clear cache. This would delete the junk files created by multiple apps in the system.
- Perform Factory Reset
This must be your last option to execute. Perform the factory reset only if all the other options fail to recover your device. Before performing a factory reset, it is advisable to backup stored data to Google drive. To perform factory reset, go to settings, click system.
Look for factory data reset or erase all data. Make sure that your phone is connected to a power source as the hard reset may take an hour or two. Once the reset is done, restart your phone (it automatically restarts in some phones) and restore your data from the cloud. Factory data reset will improve your phone’s performance significantly.
Apart from the above ways to improve performance, there are many ways which can result in a performance boost. Advanced settings such as rooting your system, managing settings in developer mode, clearing hidden data from the system can also be used. Ensuring the protection of your phone’s hardware and not breaching the security guidelines of Google, you are completely safe to try out any option to get a performance enhancement.
You can even overclock your device, but let’s talk about that later on. We hope these tips have helped you improve your Android experience. If you’d like to learn more about improving the performance of your device, head to this article.
