As of now, everyone is looking forward to Alcatel Idol 4 and Alcatel Idol 4s, which are expected to get the release in the coming months.

Alcatel Idol 3 with 5.5-inch display has received a huge applause from the smartphone lovers soon after its release. Powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, this phone comes with 2GB RAM and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop version. Recently, few of its users reported that they are facing few performance issues with the device. But, nowadays, it seems like a common issue in Android device, as every user is reporting the same after using the device for few months. So, in here we are going to share few tips for your Alcatel Idol 3 using which you can speed up the performance of the device in 5 minutes.

Get the Latest Software Update

Initially, check for the latest software update available for your device. Usually, the users will get notification of the OTA updates from the manufacturers. These updates contain the fixes for minor bugs which in turn help to enhance the performance of the device. So, if you receive such notification about the update, then download and install the same on your device.

Also, you can check for the update manually through, ‘Settings>About Phone’. If you find any update, then get it on your device. Always use WiFi connection to download the update as the size of the file will be large. Once the phone is upgraded, then you can experience the smoother functionality on the device.

Disable Animation Settings

The most prominent feature in the advanced version of Android is ‘Developer Options’. This feature will enable the user to access much more features using which one can perform certain tasks on the device. But, by default, these options cannot be seen and so we need to enable them. Go to, ‘Settings>About Phone> Build Number’ and tap few times on the build number until the developer options are enabled.

Now, you can check for these options under your device settings. Open the ‘Developer Options’ and scroll down to find animation settings where everything will be pointed to 1X by default. So, now you can either turn them off or reduce them to 0.5X. Once done, you can feel the change instantly in the performance of the device. At anytime, you can revert to the old settings by reversing the process.

Uninstall Pre-installed Apps

The device in your hand seems to have few pre-installed apps, and you might have wonder how these apps got on your phone. These are the apps which will be installed in the device by the manufacturer before the release. So, every new phone will come out the pre-installed app out of which few will be bloatware which causes battery-draining and over-heating problems. So, you have to uninstall all such apps from the device or disable them to improve the functionality of the phone.

Also, the users fill their devices with certain apps from play store out which few will be unnecessary. So, go and check the downloaded apps in your device and uninstall the useless apps. By doing this, storage space will be increased, and the performance can also be enhanced to a certain extent.

Avoid Live Wallpapers and Widgets

Live Wallpapers might enhance the look of the phone’s display, but it uses most of the processor to do so. As a result, you may see the lag in performance of the device. So, we advise you not to use Live Wallpapers and instead try normal wallpapers which also add beauty to your device.

As we all know that, Widgets perform certain tasks for the user, but in the background, it affects the processor in doing so resulting in the slow performance of the device. So, our advice for you is not to use any widgets on the phone and if at all you need them, limit the number to just one or two. By avoiding, Live Wallpapers and Widgets you can gear up the performance of the device.

Remove App Cache and Wipe Cache Partition

Every app you open, every app you use will store the cache in its background. The cache keeps on increasing its size by occupying the storage space and so it has an indirect affect on the functionality of the phone. So, you need to clear the cache of the apps by opening each app under ‘App Manager’ and tapping on ‘Clear Cache’.

There is a way to clear the whole cache from the device too, and that can be done via recovery mode. To get into recovery mode, turn off the device and press volume up and power button. Keep pressing the volume button until you see the menu and then select ‘English’. You can use volume buttons for scrolling up and down and power button for confirming the selection. Now, select and confirm ‘Wipe Cache Partition’ after which go for ‘Reboot system now’.
That’s all, entire cache from the device will be cleared.

Factory reset

If you are device is extremely slow then you can perform the factory reset to enhance the performance of the device. Before performing this task, you need to take the backup of data as this process will erase all the data from the device. Now you need to get into recovery mode as explained above. Next, select and confirm, ‘Wipe data/factory reset’ and then ‘Yes—delete all user data’. After the completion of the process, go for ‘Reboot system now’ and that’s all; you will have a brand-new device in your hands.

The other way to perform factory reset is by tapping on ‘Settings>Backup & Reset> Factory data Reset>Reset Phone’. This will erase everything on your phone, and you can see the change in performance of the device.

Few additional tips

By following few other precautions, you can easily boost up the device performance. Always remember to turn off the WiFi and Bluetooth connections whenever not in use. Make a habit of adjusting the brightness and rotation of the screen manually instead of going for auto-settings. Use original battery chargers for charging the device to get the best performance of the battery.
