How to Increase Android Phone Performance


Android smartphones are found almost everywhere, and they range from low to high-end smartphones. All of them will slow down with time; this is why it's important to maintain your smartphone smoothness by following the few easy—to—do steps mentioned in this article.

Update your smartphone firmware.
The updates fix some bugs, add new features, and other issues that you may not be aware of. Such issues crop up with reasonable frequency, so updating regularly will ensure the optimum performance for your phone.

Reset your Android phone.
Resetting erases everything and brings your phone back to its original, as new condition. This is a temporary option because as you use your phone again, it will suffer the same behavior again.

Check the internal memory space. A low amount of internal memory could be the reason behind any severe lag that your phone is experiencing.
Move your media (pictures, mp3 files, videos, and so forth) to the external memory, usually an SD card.
Search the Google Play Store for useful applications. Possible applications that may help include:
> A good antivirus application: Scans your phone for any possible viruses and malware. These usually slow down your phone.
> A startup manager: Allows you to stop a number of applications from starting up automatically when the phone boots up.
> An app cache cleaner (could be automatic, too): Cleans up some cached data from the internal memory.
> App2SD: Allows you to move some applications to the SD card (if you have one inserted, and if supported on your phone). This also speeds up the phone. Uninstall unused applications

Restart the phone.
This is a temporary option, but it works!

Root the phone.
Rooting gives you additional options to do with your phone. Although rooting is a risky solution, it is not as risky as it used to be. This might brick your phone (i.e., might malfunction). In addition, a successful root will void your warranty. However, you can always unroot the phone (and you will restore your warranty, as the manufacturers cannot tell if you rooted your phone before or not).

Stop Syncing
Sync is a very good feature that synchronizes your data with Google servers. Keeping sync on, you can get notifications whenever new mail comes in or when you get new notifications or updates for apps. To do this, it does a refresh at every preset interval (e.g. it checks your mail every 5 minutes for new incoming mail), and this will eat into your android’s performance for other activities.

Turn off Animations
What animations? Well, if you haven’t noticed, your phone screen actually fades out and in as you switch from one task to the other. To see this in action Go to Settings > Developer Options > Window Animation Scale > Animation scale 10x. Then choose Window Animation Scale again to see the fade-in effect in slow motion. When you choose Animation off, the screen just snaps to position without animation. You can also turn off Transition Animation Scale in the same way. If you are a heavy user, you’d probably notice that your Android performs faster with all animations off.

Use Task Killer/Manager
Download any free Task Killer apps or Task Managers from Google Play. Some of the good ones are Advanced Task Killer and Super Task Killer Free. Use a task killer to kill background processes and other apps that you don’t need or you don’t use.
