5. Remove Your Launcher
If you are using any customizing app launcher then it’s time when you should get rid of it. Often the launchers slow down your device and affect the device’s performance. As the present great Smartphones are free of any overt customization, you need not to use any launcher. However, if you are using any Chinese brands such as Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi etc, then using a launcher seldom becomes a requirement. In that case, you may switch to a third-party launcher. You may use a lightweight launcher to customize your phone.
6. Free up Storage
Less storage affects device’s speed tremendously. However, a device with good internal storage may also show lagging when cluttered with a number of unwanted data such as apps, images, videos etc. For improving the speed of the device, clear the data by deleting or copying the data in a hard disk or another computer.
7. Stop the Apps Running in the Background
There are many apps that you don’t use frequently. However, these apps run in the background and make your device slow and annoying. For this, go to the Settings>>Apps. Tap to the app that you don’t use frequently and click on the option, Force Stop. This option won’t affect the functioning of the apps. It will only stop those apps from restarting in the background. You may use the apps later by just tapping and opening it.
The above fixes will not affect your important data and device functioning. So, don’t wait anymore. Speed up your phone and get rid of all the clutter that is making your Android phone perform poor and slow.
