How to speed up your Android phone

Smartphones have become an integrated part of our daily lives, but with everyday usage, Android does tend to slow down with time. Eventually, your phone will start slowing down to a crawl, animations start lagging, and you start seeing glitches – unless you’ve purchased one of the flagship model phones which come with future-proofed hardware.


Cached Data

Everything you do on your phone leaves a remnant of data in the RAM cache to improve the multitasking of your phone. As this builds up eventually you’ll reach a point where you need to clear the cached data from your device. You can speed up your Android phone by going to Settings > Storage > Cache, tapping on the Cache option, and clearing the cache partition.



Animations are Android’s eye-candy, which requires a lot of system resources to make the user experience of Android look more fluid. These animations can become jittery and start lagging at times, which makes turning the UI animations off improve the performance of the device and increase the battery life. Disable animations by navigating to your phone’s Settings > About Phone > tap “Build Model Number 10 times” then go back to Settings > Developer Options > Windows animation scale > Animations and disable the UI animations to speed up performance.


Remove bloatware

Modern Android smartphones pack a lot of bloatware, which is software that got pre-installed onto the device from the manufacturer, or from the carrier. These apps take up space on your phone’s memory and are often unneeded apps that won’t ever get used, and when you delete them it actually speeds up your phone. Remove any unnecessary apps from your Android device to increase performance and battery life.


Don’t use Live Wallpapers

Live wallpapers are amazing to look at, but require extra CPU cycles – which in turn slows down your system and decreases the battery life expectancy. It’s recommended to always use a still, dark wallpaper to save system resources, save battery, and speed up your Android phone.
