If your Android is slow, try this


3 min read

There are several reasons why Android devices slow down, but most can be fixed with simple things like a little overview of system settings.

If you’re using a device running Google Android and suddenly notice that the device has slowed down a lot, it’s time for a little home diagnostics. Of course, there may be a mistake in some temporary bug, but fortunately – there is a solution for that.


One of the best and easiest ways to solve weird device slowdowns is to make sure your system is up to date. If after checking you find out that your smartphone really has the latest available version of Android, it’s time to do the same for apps. There is a chance that some of them slowed down your device due to an old bug, and that the solution to the whole problem is to simply check the latest version.



Get rid of unnecessary cash
All the programs you run on your Android use RAM and data on your cache. Sometimes, for some reason, this cache can be filled with unnecessary data, but fortunately – it is possible to empty it. To do this, go to the device settings and select Storage and then Internal storage, and then Cached data. After the device asks if you are sure you want to delete the external program memory, press OK.


Be aware that deleting cache in applications may also delete your login information. Data related to applications, ie profile information, can be deleted in the same menu, so before that move, we suggest that you ensure that you remember the password for those applications. After deleting unnecessary data, delete unnecessary applications as well.

Delete unwanted applications
If you decide to delete unwanted applications, first take a look at their size within the settings and the “Storage” menu. Spot the biggest programs here and delete them if you don’t need them. Android, like any other operating system, discreetly uses the free space of your phone and thus speeds up daily operations. If you free up enough space, your device will probably run faster.

Delete unwanted photos
If you’ve already started cleaning apps, definitely take a look at the photo gallery and other recorded files. Photos, if you don’t have a high-capacity device, can seriously compromise your free memory – especially if you don’t use cloud storage. If you want to save photos and free up memory, we suggest installing apps like Google Photos or Dropbox.

Reset your smartphone
Restarting the smartphone could fix some temporary bugs. If, after shutting down and turning on your Android, you find that the system is running faster, the problem is solved. If the smartphone is still slow, there is a factory reset option which, unfortunately, deletes all other data from the device. That is why it is very important to back up all the data on the device before that.

If your smartphone runs fast after a factory reset, only to slow down after you return all the programs to it, it is possible that some of them are causing problems or you have some kind of malware installed.


Run the antivirus program
If your device runs slower, overheats, and displays strange notifications, be sure to install an antivirus and check if the phone is infected. The antivirus application will scan all the data, detect intruders and help you get rid of it. If you do not detect anything after scanning the device, the cause of the slowdown is elsewhere.
