How to speed up your android phone?

When it comes to speed up and clean your android phone it becomes a tedious process.

Because you are not aware of what the output will be and how to do it.

And here is the real time data of android users searches from 2017 – now.



This post is not about suggesting a master cleaner app to do the work for you.

Because I think the cleaner apps may consume your phone power and slow down the phone performance.

did you notice above? Yes! I said your phone power which plays a major role in phone performance.

And how it does, How to save power, why it consumes more power.

Remember its not only about the files you stuff in your internal and external storage. its also about the apps and it side effects.

So Let’s get started

Speed up, clean your android phone:

1)Know your apps:

Do you know how many apps are installed on your phone?

No one does, because there is no point to remember it.

But it is must to know what those apps are doing in background silently.

Whenever you install an app from play-store or unreliable sources it will start work in background and start consumes your battery well.

Above image explains memory consumed by apps.

So what you can do to stop those?

To turn off the background notifications for all the app.

Instead, you can turn it off for particular app alone by visiting
settings -> apps -> App name (You want to turn it off).

In the below article I explained to save your time from smartphone use.

2) The Big picture of internal storage:

The big picture of internal storage is
IT IS YOUR PART OF RAM, Yes it is!.

Have you ever noticed that when you buy your phone your phone will be in god mode and works like charm and do tasks for you within seconds.

Slowly your phone becomes lazy and do not listen to your speech.

And that’s because you have installed number of apps and that leads to more files, large number of sizes and heavy RAM usage which consumes more power and gives your slow performance.

To escape from all of the above,
You need to clear your cache, simple that’s it.

Just visit settings and search for storage & USB and scroll down
until you see clear cache.

Once you see it, tap into it without fear your data will not be lost.

Once you done, you will see huge differences of MB in your internal storage, doing this regularly will speed up your android phone.

Also In addition to that you need to free up some space for your internal storage, don’t think that I have 4 GB free out of 16 GB.
For  64 GB, Free up to 8GB. Incase of  128 Gb , Free upto 16GB.

3) The story of external storage:

When it comes to external storage, it also acts as part of your RAM in rare cases.

How ? Let me explain it.

When you setup your phone for the first time,Android OS asks you to setup SD card as internal storage which is the main reason to speed your phone performance.

Because Google already knows your phone will give slow performance in a time due to heavy apps usage and its not the problem made default by google.

It consistently trying to improve your phone performance in each version of android OS.

So what I am trying to say with these information.

Give some space to your external storage similar to internal storage and your phone will thank you.

Talk with your phone and treat it as human unlike machine.

Also Harish Jonnalagadda from androidcentral.com suggest some techniques will improve your android phone performance

4) Say Hello to your battery:

Have you ever had a conversation with your battery?

Did you ask your battery how it is doing?

I am sure some of done because most people are not aware of it.

There are some ways to speak your battery and you can give life in long term.

You remember Speed up your phone depends on power in your phone.
This is what I was talking about.

What is in power?

There are some patterns to charge your phone and unlike 0 – 100% method.

In the below article I explained how to charge your smartphone so that your battery won’t get detriment in long term.

5) Brag with your Phone processor & its speed

Yes! I always do that!

When you buy a phone you must note your phone processor speed which will be in GHz.

Because speed depends on the processor number.

When you buy,it is good to have a speed from 2.0 GHz to 2.3GHz.

Nowadays buying a 2.0GHz phone will give you much speed to handle your multitasking.

In addition to that, you phone Processor is the things to be considered.

Don’t buy a quad core mobile if you looking better performance.

Buy the Deca-core processor phones which has 10 processor
2 for performance, 4 for power balance, and 4 for power efficiency.

Where True Octa core processor phones also good to buy.

Everyone using smartphone because it saves a lot of time.

when it comes to using smartphone productively it becomes a big problem.

You always think of it using easily, but the moment when you take the phone in hand.

The notifications starts to pop up and your mind starts to wander over Facebook, Instagram and other social media apps.

Have you ever had a thought to how to get rid of it and start being productive with your smartphone.

It is not hard that much as you feel, Once you start to become habitual you will be better at using your smartphone.

I am not going to talk about that do not use your phone for limited amount of time or limited amount in a day.

Instead, I will tell you how to use it effectively when you use your phone.
so you can save your quality time on the go.

Use smartphone productively:

1) Turn off notifications:

Seriously! do you need this to turn off?

Yes! I suggest strongly.

Why? then How will I know about whats going on with that app?

You can turn it off for the specific apps that are you are not intended to use.

Nice isn’t it! So you can stop that notification alone and concentrate what you want to do.

You can do that by visiting settings and apps section where you can find the list of apps installed on your smartphone.

Tap into it and check the notification settings for particular app, and leave unchecked the status bar, screen lock , and top reminder or you can even turn off the enable notification alone which will stop notifying from the app fully.

See the reference image below for better understanding.

2) Use your Google keyboard well

We type all the times to communicate.

When it comes to sharing something we usually launch our browser and share things as much as fast.

Instead of using browser you can Tap the G symbol in your Google keyboard and get started to type what you are searching for and share it as image or link within seconds,i think that is real quick.

Even you can use translate your texts while chatting.

How to use your smartphone productively

3) Send offline WhatsApp message

When you are in home or office your smartphone is connected with internet.

And you will be using mobile data to send when you are not using WiFi.

But what if you aren’t available with these two options and you forgot to send the texts that you thought to send.

That’s where the use of sending offline WhatsApp message comes in.

It is not any app or scheduler, just send the message as usual and your messages won’t be delivered until your phone gets connectivity.

So what is the productivity here?

Instead of Scheduling your works to text after getting connected with WiFi, you can type and send, it will deliver once your smartphone gets a proper internet connection.

4) Bigger display fonts:

How about using your phone very closer every-time and that leads to your eye issues.

Even one of my friend eyes got affected with blue violet light from the phone and he is now wearing eye glasses.

The point is he is not a specky guy and all blame goes to his smartphone and using it inappropriate time.

BBC news also stated that 2000 people under the age of 25 checking their smartphone 32 times a day which leads to risk of eye damage.

That’s really huge.

So what can be done?

One way to stop risk of your eye damage is to start keeping your phone in a particular distance to your face with reduced brightness in your phone.

In that way you can escape from your smartphone light rays at-least 50%.

Second way to Keep bigger fonts in your display settings so that you do not have to keep your smartphone close to your face.

Bigger fonts leads to keep your phone at good distance from your face.

Third way is to stop using it in inappropriate times?

What is inappropriate times?

When you get a time to sleep and you use smartphone that leads to severe damage which is more stronger than in day times.

Because at night times your smartphone will spread a beacon of light to your face.

And that’s how my friend became a specky guy.

So its up on you to stop using it at night times.

5) Get notified again:

When you receive a notification and you used to click and visit the app.

But what if you pushed it away and you can’t get the notification from your notification bar again but you really wanted to get the same notification page on the app.

Its not that hard to get notified again.

When you pull your notification bar you will get the notification log in your bottom of the screen.

In the left corner you will see a timed notification icon from there you can access your notification logs to get to the same page of the app.

6) Save Whatsapp message

When you read some forward messages in whatsapp you will find that it too informational.

After some days its hard to find out those messages, because you are not sure the group name to find.

so what can be done?

Once you see such an informative posts do bookmark which is provided in format of star.

It is available once you long-press the message in whatsapp.
