Kento SystemsYour Android device was more than likely blazing fast when you first purchased it, correct?

Then the course of time took its toll and it became slower. This is a shared problem and nothing to worry about. Below is the Mobile Application Development Los Angeles’ guide to getting your device back to speed.

  1. Pinpoint the problem

The first step to do is detect what is causing the problem: an app, multiple apps, the system itself? Trepn Profiler provides the real-time CPU load, and a summary of network traffic which can help detect areas of concern. Additionally, Trepn can provide system-wide profiles and contains various methods for exposing accrued data. Once you’ve gotten to the bottom of the problem you can begin to solve it by using one of the solutions listed below.

  1. Free up some space

All those pictures you’ve taken and all of those applications you’ve installed can take their toll on your device.  Your phone needs a little breathing room to run smoothly and if it’s running low on storage space, you will notice the performance suffer. You can detect how much space remains by checking the “storage settings” tab on your mobile device. One of the simplest ways to free up space is to uninstall any applications that are rarely used.

  1. Cut back on the number of widgets

All those widgets you have running on your home screen may be useful, but they also take up their fair share of resources. If you have any widgets that do not find valuable consider deleting them.

  1. Deactivate excessive animations and extras

Depending on the launcher you are using, you may find that there are various animations and special effects in place. These may look great, but they can also slow things down.

  1. Close down apps and free up RAM

Stop multi-tasking on several apps!  You are consuming your device’s ram and should shut down the apps before you move on to another.

  1. Reboot your device

A simple fix for a slow phone is to simply restart it. This can clear out the cache, stop unneeded tasks from running, and get your android device running efficiently again.
