Too much apps can sap your device’s ability to perform quickly. and reduces the level of performance it offers. Most Android devices allow you to bring a list of apps that are running with a simple tap or through the device’s settings menu. Have a look at what’s running. work with what you’re using right now and shut down unnecessary apps from background this can help you to make Android Faster.

Some apps even they are not being used or are properly closed will be still found running in the background. Don’t trust me then you can check your device by going to Menu and open Settings and then tap on Applications and click on running tab and see for yourself. The more apps you have there the more slower your device.

4. Uninstall Go Launcher or Change some settings:

Well This app is one of the most popular app on Google play and one of most used apps out of all the ones available in the Google Play Store. It makes your device looks awesome in terms of software, but in reality It uses your much RAM Hence it slows down your device’s speed. I can say this because I helped many device’s speed up just by uninstalling this application.Am not really against it but it needs too much improvement to be on your device because it is a big RAM leech. If you still can’t live without just do follow the following settings.

go launcher EX

Uninstall go launcher

Go to Menu then open Preferences after that go to Action Settings then open Screen transition speeds then finally Change from default to Quick and make sure to set speed at 75

This will improve the navigation through different screens but still won’t improve your speed as you get after uninstalling the app completely.

5. Remove widgets:

Widgets are for some specific purpose they are not a fancy item.  You should add widgets you really wants every time. Widgets are useful but you should think about your device what it can handle. you should trim the number of widgets to get better performance because widgets eats you RAM and makes your device slower. If you have every thing on your home screen it means you are too lazy or you don’t thinks about your device’s performance.Try to Remove live widgets which updates time by time like Facebook or weather e.t.c.

6. Install apps on need basis:

Android Play Store is a home of millions of free apps, it is recommended that you only download and install only the apps that you need. Apps on Android are installed on ROM, which is usually very limited in storage space. If you populate it with unnecessary apps, it will only make it slow. You should install only basic apps you want.

If your apps and widgets can be arranged into a smaller space you should do it because Removing home screens is a simple way to increase performance. If your home screens are filled with widgets it could be a good idea to look through them and work out which ones you really need and which you can live without you should remove them. Removing home screens may make you believe that you device gone bad or getting old. All Android handsets come with 5 or 7 home screens. This simply kills your device’s RAM, and reduce it’s efficiency. So reduce to only those home screens that are required.

8. Store more apps in External Memory:

If many apps are installed in the device’s internal memory, they can slower your device too much. It is better to move some of your apps from your device’s internal memory to your external memory e.g SD Card to free up device’s memory and to increase it’s speed and efficacy.

12. Keep your most important apps and games in the internal memory:

By sending the apps and games data to memory card you will free space and make things good for device. This is true but the device will take much more time to start and may even lag because the device is trying to fetch data to and fro the memory card rather than the internal memory which is faster. For better performance you should keep only the important and frequently used apps and games in the internal memory.

You may have a handset full of large apps that you rarely use or older ones that have been surpassed by better apps. You should clear these out can boost your device handles data and improve its overall performance.
