Clear your Cached Data

Your apps are constantly caching small pieces of data, which typically will speed up your phone’s performance. If your device runs low on storage, the cached data will start hurting more than it helps. The below shows how to clear your cached data.

  • On your phone, navigate to Settings. You can find settings in the app drawer.
  • Tap Storage.
  • Tap Cached data.
  • Select OK.

Disable Animations 

On your phone, Animations make all of the transitions and interactions with your operating system appear more fluid right up until your phone starts slowing down and those animations start looking like stop motion video. If the animations aren’t flowing so well anymore, turning them off completely will look better and free up a little processing power.

  • Navigate to Settings on your phone. You can find settings in the app drawer.
  • Tap About phone.
  • Tap the Build number 7 times. You can see a message that you have enabled Developer options.
  • Return to Settings and Tap Developer options.
  • Tap Windows animation scale and select “Animation off.”
  • Repeat Step 5 with the Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale.

Remove/Disable Bloatware and Unused Apps (1 minute)

Right out of the box, your Android phone probably had several apps pre-installed by your carrier or the phone manufacturer that has gone completely unused. If things are slowing down on your device, a lack of available storage might be the culprit. Here’s how to free up space

  • Navigate to Settings on your phone. You can find settings in the app drawer.
  • Tap Apps.
  • Choose an app you wish to uninstall and click on it.
  • Each app displays the amount of storage it is using below the app name, so you’ll know how much you are freeing up.
  • Tap Uninstall and select OK to confirm.
  • Repeat Step 4 as needed until all unwanted apps are removed.

Remove or Reduce Widgets 

Widgets are an amazing feature of the Android operating system that allows you to see and interact with apps on your home screen without actually launching the app.

  • Navigate to the widget you wish to remove.
  • Long press on the widget. Remove, and App Info will appear at the top of the screen.
  • Drag the widget to Remove and release.

Optimize Chrome Browser 

With about 90 percent of Android users sticking with the Chrome browser, this will help the vast majority of you speed up your mobile web browsing. As a bonus, it will save you some data if you aren’t on an unlimited cellphone plan.

Data Saver mode in Chrome for Android allows Google to compress the pages you view by around 30 percent, up to 50 percent for video, meaningless data usage, and faster browsing.

  • Navigate to the Chrome Browser.
  • Click the overflow menu button in the upper-right corner.
  • Click on Settings.
  • Tap Data Saver.
  • Toggle the switch in the upper-right corner.

Someways to speed up your Android smartphone

Android Smartphone Boot Faster – Android smartphones are blazing fast these days, with processors, RAM, and storage type working in conjunction to make everything snappy. But often, with time, many of them slow down as more ‘junk’ keeps getting stored in the form of cached data, unused files, and folders. There are some ways are shown below.

Switch off auto-sync

Most smartphones these days have this particular option in the Settings app. You can head there to look at what apps really need to be auto-synced in the background. You can select the ones you think you don’t need auto-syncing for and turn off the auto-sync option.

Clean the home screen

Keeping a live wallpaper with widgets for weather, news, and other such constantly updating apps may result in lags often as all of them get refreshed as soon as you unlock your smartphone. The same is the case with keeping multiple windows on the home screen.

Enable ‘Data Saver mode

Enabling the ‘Data Saver option in the Chrome browser will also help you surf without waiting much as it compresses the page, using fewer data and loading pages faster. Here you could be sacrificing the image and video quality a bit. Also, data speed matters here.

Task killers actually make apps ‘slow’

Yes, you heard that right. Task-killing apps actually make it slow for apps to start. This is because some apps are managed better by Android when they are left midway in the background. When task killers shut down an app running in the background, booting them from the start takes more time. It also takes more battery.

Try installing a custom ROM.

If you are a pro and have a good amount of experience with rooting a smartphone, try installing a custom ROM. With this, you can’t just get hold of the latest features and the newest version of the Android version even after your device doesn’t support it.

Keep the OS version up to date.

If your smartphone is still in the official OS upgrade cycle, install the latest version whenever the OEM rolls it out. This keeps the bugs from the previous version away and brings several fixes and optimizations to keep the device snappy and non-laggy.

If nothing works, factory reset is the way to go.

This is your last resort. If you are not familiar with rooting, your device is no more in the official Android OS update cycle, and you don’t want third-party apps to clear the date for you, perform a factory reset. The option can be found on the Settings page.
