Your Android device is an an amazing piece of hardware, capable of performing numerous, standout functions. But with time your device tends to slow down and lag too often. This happens with majority of Android users out there.
Making your Android fast and lag free is not tough either. You just need to follow these simple tips to get back the speed and wonder you enjoyed with your Android in its early days.
1) Try to use a static wallpaper-
Live wallpapers range anywhere between 2MB to 20MB and constantly run on the background, sucking your battery and CPU power(processing power), hence your phone tends to lag way too often and even hangs at certain points.
It would be advised to use static wallpapers instead of live, as memory(RAM) consumption as well as battery consumption is far lower than live wallpapers. You would certainly witness the difference.
2) Uninstall unused apps-
Its a common thing in most Android devices-unused apps! More the number of apps on your device, lesser will be the memory available for the apps to run. Hence, it is advisable to have minimum number of apps on your Android, keep the ones that are important to you.
In case you need any app in the near future, you can always reinstall it!
3) Use minimum number of widgets-
Widgets running on the screens of your Android, consume a lot of that free memory( RAM). Each widget loads a service to keep itself updated, these services range anywhere between 2-5 MB even though the widget is around 50-100KB in size, hence consuming a major portion of the memory.
You can check out the number of running services by going to Settings->Applications->Running services. The more the number of widgets, the more will be the activated services. Hence, to enjoy a lag free environment on your Android, remove unnecessary widgets!
4) Move apps back from SD card to internal memory-
It sounds a bit tricky, but its true! In case your internal memory is good enough, do not hesitate in moving commonly used apps back from the SD card to the internal memory.
The reason behind this is that, the Android OS takes lesser time in accessing apps that are located in the internal memory (In case the processor of your device is great, it won’t make a difference). Apps are meant to be run on the internal storage only.
5) Do not use task killers on automatic mode-
Task killers like Advance task killer n many more provide you with the option of automatic/ scheduled task killing. But the problem with this concept is that it interferes with the built in memory management. The memory freed up by these apps is only temporary as the killed apps restart, in turn occupying the RAM.
Hence, it is advisable to turn off automatic/scheduled task killing. You can manually kill apps as and when you need.
These methods don’t require your phone to be rooted.
Keeping your Android in a fast n charming state is your responsibility, we are just providing a helping hand!
