How To Speed Up Your Slow Android Smartphone

Get Rid of Superfluous Apps
The purpose of this procedure is not so much to free
space but to remove any apps that might be
performing poorly. Apps can contain all sorts of
trouble-prone, permissions-based polling, checking and
Step 1: Open the Settings area by touching the
Settings cogwheel-like icon. Then scroll through to the
Apps menu item. In older versions of Android, it's
labeled Applications.
Step 2: Touch the Downloaded tab and scroll through
the list of apps. These are the apps that you've
installed over the years.
Step 3: Touch the app label for any app that you
haven't used in six months and press Clear Cache,
then Clear Data and then Disable or Uninstall,
depending on options proffered.
Tip: Be ruthless here and purge anything you're not
using -- it's a lot easier than identifying rogue
behavior app-by-app.
Step 4: Test by restarting the phone and
unscientifically identifying whether performance has
improved. Key benchmarks are time-to start and
speed-of-scroll between home screens.
If the phone is feeling nimble again, you've
identified your issue.
Make Some Space
Step 1: Open the Apps menu item again from within
Step 2: Choose Options and then Sort by size.
Step 3: Scroll through the first few apps --the most
memory-hungry -- and clear the caches by pressing
the Clear Cache button within each App label. This
will free memory, allowing more operating headroom.
Then test.
Step 4: Check storage by opening the Settings area
again. Then scroll through to the Storage menu item.
View the Internal Storage graphical bar. If it's full,
with little space being indicated as available, install
LeveloKment's app Storage Analyser , available free in
the Google Play store, and run it.
Tip: This app will identify the largest files on your
device -- files that may be phantom -- and allow you
to delete or move them off the device, thus freeing
space. Then test.
Reinstall the Factory Stock Software
If the previous steps haven't solved the problem, this
likely will. Like rehab (or the drunk tank) for our
wrong-side-of-the-tracks inhabitant, this operation
may sound like a big deal and a lot of work, and
unfortunately it is, because you have to reconfigure
your apps.
Step 1: Open the Backup and Reset menu item from
Settings and check Backup My Data along with your
Google account details if prompted.
Tip: Leave the phone connected to the Internet
overnight if you are newly creating a backup.
This will give the Google servers time to pluck the
settings data like WiFi connections and passwords,
which it will restore later. You can skip this, but you'll
have to re-enter a bunch more stuff manually.
Step 2: Select Factory Data Reset from the same
menu and follow the prompts to perform a full wipe
and OS reinstall.
Tip: Before a reset save, off-device, any internal
storage-stored media files, like captured photographs.
A reset wipes internal storage.
Step 3: Allow the phone to restart and follow the
prompts to set up your Google account on the device
