Also, you might have tried several apps from the play store and may not be using it at all.

Animations and any other special effects will although improve the beauty of the phone but they indirectly slow down your phone’s performance. So, it is not advisable to have such effects enabled on your phone. Find out the animation options in your device and disable or reduce them to boost up your device.
