Speed Up Your Slow Smartphone With Some Optimization Tips & Tricks

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's smoothness. The effects of this optimisation are most tangible for smartphone users, who in today's fast-paced world become impatient and frustrated if their smartphone starts slowing down, hanging, or otherwise impeding their productivity.

1. Clear the app cache

Having lots of apps can be really useful and really fun, but over time they write to the app cache on your phone, consuming valuable system resources and slowing the phone down. Go to Settings and you can wipe the cache of any app, but with lots of apps, that's going to be a bit of a task. But don't worry, there's an app for that -- App Cache Cleaner. Just tap Clear and it's all gone. There's also an Auto Clear feature, which can clean up your cache at intervals set by you.

2. Install a third-party app launcher

Most Android smartphone manufacturers customise the OS on their devices, with specially-designed skins, launchers or UIs that sport widgets, layouts and other custom features in addition to the vanilla OS offering. While some users do find these customisations and added features useful, they can potentially slowdown the smartphone. A simple workaround is to install a good third-party launcher (simpler than rooting or installing a custom ROM on the smartphone), which should remove most of the custom features, whilst also providing personalisation options. Some of the best launchers available in the Google Play store are 'Nova Launcher', 'GO Launcher EX', and 'Apex Launcher'. 

3. Do away with unnecessary shortcuts and widgets

Shortcuts and widgets use precious phone memory space, so the less you have, the smoother your mobile experience. You can remove widgets with a long press and a drag off screen, so it's worth going through your desktops and having a clear out.

4. Disable non-vital background processes, check synching apps

Some apps start up with the phone, while others are constantly synching with online services. Both of these can dramatically slowdown users' smartphones. To check which apps are running in the background, users should visit the Apps section in Settings, and swipe to the 'Running' tab. If there are apps running in the background that are not being utilised, users should try uninstalling the apps, or disabling them, in case the apps can't be removed. 

Another thing to be checked is if there are apps that are synching in the background, and if the benefits of synching are being utilised by the user. If not, users can turn off synchronisation, saving both data and system resources. To do this, visit Settings>Data usage (could be a separate section called 'Usage' under 'Wireless & networks' menu, depending on your Android version), and scroll down to see which apps are using data. Users can then either visit individual app settings to turn off synchronisation, or visit the 'Data usage' section's context menu, which has the 'Auto-sync data' option (not present in all Android versions), which can be turned off. 

To do the same for any Google app or services, users will need visit Settings>Accounts>Google>UserProfile. Here they can turn off sync settings for individual Google apps and services. A must-install for Android smartphone users is Advanced Task Killer, which allows users to kill any apps that are taking too much memory (RAM) or slowing down the device for other reasons, such as instability.

5. 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 lag as it used to do. Back up your contacts, memos, and any important information (such as saved passwords in browser) before doing this step. Search the Play Store for useful applications.

Watch following video that tells you how to speedup your smartphone

applications that may help include:

@ For older phones, an auto task killer: Kills chosen applications every 'n' seconds or minutes. This frees up some RAM memory, thus the phone will run faster.

@ A good antivirus application: Scans your phone for any possible viruses and malwares. These usually slow down your phone.

@ A start up manager: Allows you to stop number of applications from starting up automatically when the phone boots up.

@ Juice defender application: Gives your phone more battery juice by stopping services and applications.

@ A cache cleaner (could be automatic, too): Cleans up some cache from the mobile's memory.

@ An Apps to SD card application: Allows you to move some applications to the SD card (if you have one inserted). This also speeds up the phone.

@ Spare parts application: Gives you some more settings to configure in your phone, such as a faster window and transition animation.
