The users need to check regularly for the available software updates on the phone. As we have seen that the device comes with the Android 5.0 Lollipop version and as the time goes on, the manufactures release the updates for the phone which contains the fixes for minor bugs. By updating the device with the OTA’s, performance will get enhanced, and you can experience the better functionality of the phone.
Usually, the users receive notifications about the software updates and if not, one can check the same by tapping on ‘Settings>About Phone’. If there is any update available, then download and install it using the WiFi connection as the file size will be large. Also, you can check the web to know the about announcement of the software update for your device.
By altering some device settings you can easily boost up the device performance. In the latest Android devices, a new feature named ‘Developer Options’ have been enabled using which the users can perform certain tasks. But, by default you cannot find these options as we need to enable them by tapping few times on ‘Build Number’ under ‘Settings>About Phone’.
Once the options are enabled, you can see them on your device settings. Open and scroll down the options to find the animation settings. In here, you can see all the settings were pointed to 1X by default. Now, turn them off or reduce them to 0.5X so as to improve the performance of the phone. The change in performance can be seen instantly and at any time, you can revert to the old settings.
Almost all the gadget freaks love to fill their phones with various widgets. But, by doing so, the processor gets affected and as a result, the phone may cause performance issues. So, we advise you to reduce the use of widgets, and it is fairly recommended to disable all the widgets from the device. If at all, you need some widgets, then maintain one or two important widgets so that they cannot have an affect on the processor.
Another thing which affects the processor is Live Wallpaper. It might improve the beauty of the screen but at the same times, it eats away most of the processor resulting in a slow performance of the device. So, it is advisable to use normal wallpapers and screensavers for the device so that it can enjoy the benefits of the processor without any affect on functionality.
Every Android device contains few apps which are pre-installed in the phone and few among them may cause the performance issue. So, check the pre-installed apps on your device and uninstall them. If you don’t find an option to uninstall those apps, then disable them so that it cannot affect the functionality of the device.
Other than pre-installed apps, the users will download the apps from play store too. Among them, few are unnecessary and occupy storage space. So, recheck the installed apps on the device and uninstall them from the phone for the better performance of the phone.
Every Android user wants to try various apps from the play store and so download them on the device. Whenever you open or use a specific app, the cache gets stored in the background which in turn has an indirect affect on the functionality of the device. So, you have to clear the app cache regularly by opening each app under ‘App Manager’ and tap on ‘Clear Cache’.
Apart from the app cache, you also need to clear the cache from the entire device. For that, you need to get your phone into recovery mode. So, turn off your mobile and press volume up and power button simultaneously at the same time until you see the android system recovery menu. Now use volume buttons for selection and power button for confirming the selection. Next, select and confirm ‘Wipe Cache Partition’ and after the process is done, go for ‘Reboot system Now’. That’s all; now your device will be free from the cache.
In case you are experiencing the high-performance issue in your phone then you can perform the factory reset. To do so, you need to take the backup of the data as it erases everything from the device. Now, turn off your phone and get into recovery mode as explained above. In here, you need to select and confirm ‘Wipe data/factory reset’, and on ‘Yes—delete all user data’. Once the process is done, go for ‘Reboot system Now’ and that’s all; you will have a fresh device in your hands and so start over from the beginning.
Another way to perform factory reset is by simply tapping on ‘Settings>Backup & Reset>Factory data reset>Reset device>Erase everything’. That’s it; the task will be done in few seconds, and you can experience the faster performance in your device.
If you follow few other precautions, then you can easily speed up your device performance. Always turn off the WiFi and Bluetooth connections on your device when not in use. Also, adjust the brightness and rotation of the screen manually and uncheck the auto-options. Never over-load the processor by opening various apps at a time as it may hang the phone. Always use original battery chargers for charging the device.
