Smartphone companies are giving powerful processors in their new devices. But, as our phones get older, their performance also slows down. Their speed is affected due to many apps, games and other types of data. Here we are telling you 5 tips through which you can speed up the performance of your old phone.
The first step is to clean the storage of the smartphone. The phone also slows down due to full storage. For this you can take help of Google’s Files app. It helps you delete duplicate photos, large files and unnecessary media files. The app can be downloaded from Play Store and its size is also quite small.
2. Uninstall these apps
Many apps are present in our smartphone. However, we use only some of these regularly. In such a situation, it would be better to uninstall the apps that you are not using from the phone. Also, try to avoid apps that are constantly eating up your phone’s memory, or keep running in the background.
3. Restart the phone
Sometimes even restarting your device can free up RAM and reset apps. For phones which have less RAM, this method can be very useful. However, it doesn’t work for newer Android devices with 8GB or 12GB of RAM.
4. Use such apps
One reason for the slow speed of the phone is the large size of the apps. In such a situation, it would be better that you use the Lite version apps in your phone. You can download the Lite version of popular apps from Facebook to Instagram and Twitter from the Play Store. Although there may be a slight lack of features in them, but a lot of storage can be saved on your phone.
5. Factory reset
If after using all the tricks in your phone there is no difference, then the last method is to factory reset. Through this your phone will be completely like new. That is, the same settings and apps will remain in it, which came when buying a new phone. It is worth noting that all your data will also be deleted. That’s why it is better that you keep a backup of all your photos, videos and contacts etc.
