Make your Android Device run faster with these simple tricks
The latest software will often contain bug fixes and general improvements and it can help your Android device to run better. To update your device, Go to Settings > About device > Software update and check for updates.
If you choose to use live wallpaper then consider replacing it with a good static image. You should also clean away any unused icons. The less cluttered your home screen, the better the performance.
Take a look and identify the apps you don’t need. Tap on any app you don’t want and then choose Uninstall or, if the option is not there to uninstall, tap Disable. Disabled apps will be listed in a new tab, so you can always enable them again in future.
Cached data for apps help them to load more quickly, but it can build up over time to take up quite a lot of space and there will potentially be cached data in there for apps that are no longer useful. Sometimes clearing cached data for an app can also help to run your device faster.
Android devices allow automatically syncing in the background to pull in new data and provide us with updates. All this syncing has a big impact on performance, not to mention battery life. You can go to Settings and find Auto-sync under Accounts and just turn it off.
This is a drastic step, but some people recommend that you do a factory reset periodically if you want your device running in tip-top condition. Factory Reset is a shortcut to cleaning up your device and getting rid of any junk you’ve accumulated.
Rooting your Android device doesn’t automatically offer any performance improvements, but a custom ROM can. For some devices that are no longer being updated custom ROMs are a way of getting a newer version of Android.
