5 tips to speed up a slow Android smartphone

Like computers, smartphones become slower over time when not maintained.

This is usually due to an increasing number of applications, processes, and files stored on the device.

If your Android device is running slowly and you can’t determine why, the tips below may help you speed it up.

Bundled software

The first step is to run the device’s included software management application.

Many Android smartphones include a bundled storage, memory, or battery manager which allows you to determine which applications are using the most resources.

This lets you see if a certain application is clogging up your device, or if the problem lies in a certain resource being limited (CPU, RAM, etc.)

These applications can often run automatic cleaning programs too, which may restore your device to a more functional state.

Free up storage

Storage is an often-overlooked component of system performance problems, and does not only consist of files listed in your gallery.

It is good practice to regularly clean out app caches, browsing history, and files or videos received via messaging applications.

If your device has a microSD slot, consider installing a memory card and setting applications to automatically save files to that directory. This will free up space used on your device’s internal storage.

Certain devices are shipped with a pre-installed storage manager app, which can help you find areas where files are taking up space.
