Android smartphone can do what the owner ordered. Starting from checking email, browsing on the internet, photography, listening to music, to control the temperature of the room remotely. Who would have thought, Android’s ability so much can also make it slow.
For example, slow performance when the phone opens an app or when the displacement between screens is also very slow. This is certainly annoying and much complained by the user. Then, do we have to change the Android device?
The answer is of course not, there are several ways that can be done for Android to run smoothly again. you can also fix your smartphone at Cell Phone Repair Danforth.
- Remove Unused Apps
Android is certainly very helpful to meet all the needs of its users. Because of its multitasking, users often download many applications on their Android device, but maybe the application is only occasionally used.
Apparently, the application data is still stored in the app drawer and make the phone performance so slow because it uses the CPU source and runs in the background of the phone.
In addition, the application also takes up memory space. As a result, the phone so slow. The best way to overcome this is to remove or uninstall unused applications.
If you need the app, you can download it back through Google Play. It’s that easy, and your Android performance is definitely getting smoother.
- Clean Internal Storage Space
If you never clean the phone, the impact is the internal storage space becomes narrower because so much data accumulates in it. For example you download a movie file, this file will be automatically saved in the Download folder in the internal storage space.
If you do not move or delete it after watching, of course, the storage space in the phone increasingly decreases, the performance of Android was so slow. It is best to clean (delete) files or data that are no longer needed.
You can also move the files to external storage space (memory card / microSD card) so that more storage space. Try also to delete residue files from applications that you have deleted before. It is important to remember, when you go into internal memory and there are folders or files that you do not know what is the use, better do not delete the file.
- Clear Cache Data
Data cache is actually a good thing because it can store various data from the application to the internal storage space. With the cache data already stored, you do not have long time when opening an app. Unfortunately, when the cache data capacity is already too much stored in internal storage space, Android’s performance is sluggish. Therefore, some applications are supported by the cache data cleaner feature.
But if not, you can still clear the cache data from the application. The trick, go to Settings on Android, choose Applications, then select Application Manager and select the application you want to clean. Suppose you want to clear the cache on the Instagram application, in the Application Manager select the Instagram app, then click clear cache to delete the unused data.
- Make sure SD Card Works Well
Not all Android smartphones equipped with external memory slot, but apparently slow performance Android can be influenced by SD cards that do not work properly.
For that, you need to check it or maybe format it to make sure the SD card is working properly. Make sure before to format the SD card, do the back up for data that is in it is not lost. You do this by connecting a smartphone to a computer or using an adapter SD card then transferring data into it to a laptop or computer storage space.
Then you can format it, this process runs within minutes and all the data in it will be lost without any trace. After you have finished formatting, you can move the data back to SD card
- Factory Reset
If the above four steps fail to get your Android device back to normal or stay slow, there is one last step that can be done. You can do factory reset.
It’s important to remember well, when you decide to do factory reset, all data on your Android will be lost. The phone will return to the initial settings, just like when you just bought it. There is no data in it, including the Google accounts you registered. Even so, firmware updates are not affected by factory reset. Therefore, before deciding the factory reset, do not forget to back up all important data in the smartphone to another place.
How to do factory reset is easy. You just need to open Phone settings. Then select the Backup & Reset menu and find the Factory Data Reset menu.
