• How to easily make an Android phone run faster or stop lagging

    A slow, hanging, crashing or lagging Android phone can be
    a very frustrating companion to have. There are so many
    Android apps that most Android users either fall into the
    trap of installing too many or installing buggy apps that could
    cause their Android phones to become slow or even get
    bricked (like the fonts app). Apps are not the only cause of a
    slow Android phone (though they are, in most cases) so we
    shall discuss the most common causes of a slow Android
    phone and how to make an Android phone run faster.

    What could make an Android phone to become slow?
    Too many heavy applications running at a time: When
    too many memory consuming applications are running at
    a time then a slow Android phone is imminent

    Too many apps installed: An Android phone can
    encounter a low internal memory due to too many apps

    Too many task managers / RAM boosters / Antivirus:
    Many Android users make the mistake of installing
    multiple task managers / RAM boosters / Antivirus
    which, together, have a negative effect

    Low RAM: Running memory intensive apps on an
    Android phone with insufficient RAM = Slow Android
    Low Internal memory: Saving media and other file
    types in the internal memory reduces the available space
    for apps and could result in a slow Android phone

    Buggy Operating System: Flashing an incompatible
    version of Android or a buggy ROM could cause
    lagging / slowness

    Cluttered or faulty memory / SD card: A faulty
    memory / SD card will cause problems for apps which
    are installed on it, constantly reading or writing to it

    Startup / background processes: Memory intensive
    startup / background processes like widgets, live
    wallpapers, maps etc could result in a slow Android

    Installing Buggy apps: Buggy apps could brick or
    significantly slow down an Android phone
    Too frequent syncing / background data: Apps like
    email, weather, auto backup etc syncing too frequently is
    not too good for memory

    Slow launcher: In this age of many launchers, the one
    you choose could either make or break your Android
    user experience

    Will rooting make an Android phone run faster?

    Rooting, by itself, will not directly make a slow Android
    phone run faster ; however, it can give the necessary
    privileges to the apps / tweaks which can make a slow
    Android run fast again

    How do I make a slow Android run faster?

    Soft reset: Restart the phone

    Hard reset: Remove the battery for 15 seconds, slot it
    back in then boot the phone

    Overclock: If the kernel supports overclocking, this
    could significantly boost an Android phone&#8217;s speed.
    Overclocking is the process of tweaking a CPU for
    higher performance

    Uninstall unneeded apps: Don&#8217;t need it? Uninstall it.

    Clear logs: Everything that goes on gets logged and log
    files consume memory. Deleting log files is one good
    way to free up memory and make a slow Android
    phone run faster.

    Install apps to SD Card: Setting the default
    installation location for apps to SD card will result in
    more available internal memory. Simply go to Settings
    Storage > Set default write disk to SD Card

    Uninstall bloatware: Bloatware are those unneeded
    apps which come pre-installed on an Android phone but
    can&#8217;t be uninstalled like regular apps. Root permission is
    needed to uninstall bloatware see ( http://www.gistpluz.com/2015/06/tutorial-on-how-to-root-all-tecno.html

    Greenify the phone: Download Greenify to auto-
    hibernate unused apps / processes

    How do I prevent an Android phone from becoming slow?

    Use just one Task manager / RAM booster /
    Antivirus at a time

    Avoid installing too many apps
    Uninstall unneeded or problematic apps
    Keeps the phone&#8217;s internal memory as free as possible
    Slow down on those widgets and live wallpapers
    Flash an optimized Custom ROM

    Run regular checks on the SD card to ensure its in
    perfect condition

    Be careful what apps / ROMs you install / flash,
    especially after rooting

    Restart your Android from time to time, it helps free
    up memory

    Wipe cache and log files regularly
