How To Make Android Faster : Speed Up Your Android

Are you tired of your android phone becoming slow and not responding when you want them to? Here we have some simple ways for you to make android faster.

Why your android phone becomes slow?

After the android smartphone usage all your smartphone apps cache, temporary files are accumulated in your smartphone memory which may cause this type of issues. Either if you’ve installed dozens of apps and bombarded your home screen with lots of stuff will be the culprit to ruin smartphone performance.

Easy ways to make android run faster

Investing in the best android phone has become as fashion according to the current trend. It essential to make sure your smartphone performance will satisfy your needs before your proceed to buy. Here we have complete lists of activity that you need to follow to make your android phone run faster.

1. Make sure you’re up to date with the android system update

The latest software will often contain bug fixes and general improvements and it can help your Android device to run better. Software updates tend to come OTA (Over The Air) and you should be automatically prompted to install them, but it doesn’t hurt to check. Go to Settings > About device > Software update and check for updates.

The same logic applies to apps, so fire up the Play Store, open the menu at the top left and tap My apps and make sure all of the apps you use are up to date.

2. Clean up your home screen

Most device makers have their own home screen, but there are also various third-party alternatives and Google’s own Now Launcher in the Play Store. One thing they all have in common is widget support. Widgets are great, except when you get a little carried away and they make the phone sluggish.

If you’re feeling a little too much lag, consider scaling back what’s running on the home screen. It might just be one or two widgets causing issues, so look for things that scroll or refresh often. Live wallpapers can also cause a device to suffer poor performance, so switch to a static one to see if that fixes anything.

3. Uninstall and disable unused apps

One of the easiest ways to speed up your device is uninstall applications you do not use. Almost all Android phones have two memories internal and external. The system uses internal memory for apps and for some key system files. When that memory is full, Android is not so easy to run with memory, which will surely put a brake on the system speed.

For uninstall apps, go to Settings, look for the option of applications and you will see all that installed and are running. Select the one you want to delete, tap on it and you’ll see the option to do so. As every Android skin is different, the process may change slightly.

Therefore, you also can move applications that allow it to Micro-SD. This can be done in the same way to delete an app. The only difference is that when you get to the screen to delete the app, there is an option that says ‘Move to SD’. When you deleted your file by accident, follow this tutorial to easily retrieve data from Android SD without computer skills.

4. Turn off or reduce animations

You need to be sure what you want with your device – performance or appearance. Both never walk hand in hand, not if your phone isn’t high end. If you are looking for a superior performance, you should disable all the Live wallpapers (if at all you are using them) and the screen animation that gives fading effect to your menus and unlock animation.

Selecting common image wallpapers over a live wallpaper is easy. To disable the screen animation, ICS users should navigate to Developer options in the settings while other users should disable it from Display—>Animations.

5. Clear cached app data

Your phone will sometimes store certain images or pieces of data associated with an app so that it doesn’t have to download them every single time you open an app. This is generally a positive feature, especially if you’re trying to cut back on how much data you use. But, if your phone is running slow, there may be images stored on your phone from apps you don’t even use anymore. Delete these by going to Settings > Storage > Cached data.

6. Turn off or reduce auto-sync

You can turn mobile data on or off in the Settings app. If it’s off, you can’t use data over your mobile network and many features of your device and apps might not work correctly. You’ll still be able to use data if you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Auto-sync allows your apps to automatically sync to the data that you have on your device. You can conserve data usage by turning this feature off. If you do this, you will need to sync your apps manually whenever you need them to access data on your device.

Be aware that if you restrict background data, some apps and services won’t work until you’re connected to Wi-Fi.

  1. Open your device’s Settings appSettings.
  2. Touch Data usage.
  3. Touch the menu icon More in the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. Touch Restrict background data.
  5. When the dialogue box “Restrict background data?” appears, touch OK.
  6. To turn background data back on, touch the menu icon More in the top-right corner of the screen and then touch Allow background data.
On Android 4.4 or lower

  3. Touch the menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. Touch the box next to “Auto-sync data”.

  6. To turn auto-sync on, follow the steps above. When the dialogue box “Turn auto-sync data on?” appears, touch OK.
  7. To manually sync an app, open the app that you want to sync and follow the prompts to sync.

7. Wipe cache partition

The Android operating system partitions the internal storage of your device into different sections, including sections for user data and cached data for frequently-accessed apps. You can clear the data and cache for individual apps on your device, or boot the device into a special recovery partition. From the recovery console, you can wipe all cached data from the device, as well as clear all data.

App Data

Step 1: Press the “Menu” button and tap “Settings.” Touch “Applications.”

Step 2: Tap “Manage Applications,” select the “All” tab and touch an application name.

Step 3: Touch the “Clear Data” button to wipe the app’s saved data. Tap “Clear Cache” to remove any cached data for the app.

Phone Data

Step 1: Turn off your Android device. Reboot the phone or tablet into Recovery Mode. The process is specific to the device model. For the Motorola Droid, press and hold the “Power” button and the “X” key on the slide-out keyboard. Release the “Power” button when the Motorola icon appears. Press the “Volume-up” and “Camera” buttons simultaneously to open the Recovery Console. To access Recovery Mode with the LG Ally, press and hold the “Power,” “Home” and “Volume” buttons simultaneously.

Step 2: Press the “Volume-down” button to scroll to “Wipe Data/Factory Reset.” Press the “Camera” button to select it.

Step 3: Scroll to and select “Wipe Cache Partition.”

Step 4: Highlight and select “Reboot System Now.” The phone restarts.

8. Try a third-party launcher

Custom Android launchers are a great way to optimize your device for performance and make it faster. My favorite one, Nova Launcher Prime, lets you control your animations, allowing you to turn them off completely, which will make your phone seem quicker. Instead of turning them off, you can also try various degrees of animation speeds.

9. Overclock your device

Just like with a desktop or laptop computer, you can overclock your Android phone or tablet to speed things up. However, this will require root access. SetCPU is a popular choice for overclocking your device’s CPU. Bear in mind that overclocking can be dangerous – an overclocked phone will generate more heat, and this could result in hardware damage. Overclocking will also decrease your device’s battery life.

10. Install a custom ROM
