1. Reboot the device


The Android operating system is quite robust and doesn't need much in the way of maintenance or working. But if you are finding that your smartphone has slowed down a bit recently, here are a few things you can do to get it back to its normal speed.The first tip is a simple one... reboot your smartphone or device. Yes, I know it's simple, but it does help, especially if it has been a while since you last rebooted your smartphone. Easiest way to do this is to press and hold the power button until the option to restart appears. I generally try to reboot my devices at least once a month just to keep them fresh.

 

2. Remove unnecessary stuff and apps


If you've been using your Android smartphone for a year or so, chances are that it has accumulated a fair amount of junk and unnecessary apps leftovers. One of the best tools for hunting down and deleting junk on an Android device comes from the makers of the best PC and mac cleanup tool - CCleaner. I recommend running this tool every few weeks just to keep the operating system clean. There are other options available to do the same job, such as Avast Cleanup & Boost, AVG Cleaner, and Norton Clean.Limit background processing. First you need to activate Developer Mode. Here's how to do this:

Go to Settings
Tap on System (Android 8 and higher)
Tap on About phone
Tap on Build number 7 times
Enter password to authenticate making the change
Return to the previous screen to find Developer options near the bottom
Under Developer options go to Background process limit and choose an option. To get the best performance from the running app, choose No background processes, but if you regularly switch between a couple of apps, then choosing one or two running in the background might be a better compromise.

 

3. Disable animations


Flashy animations are nice, but disabling them will increase the speed of your device. First you need to activate Developer Mode. Here's how to do this:

Go to Settings
Tap on System (Android 8 and higher)
Tap on About phone
Tap on Build number 7 times
Enter password to authenticate making the change
Return to the previous screen to find Developer options near the bottom
Under Developer options go to Windows animation scale and choose Animation off.

 

4. Update your operating system


If your smartphone is running slower than usual, then your operating system (or OS) might need to be updated. Having the latest version of iOS or Android on your phone is the best way to ensure it works at its best. Just make sure your phone is connected to Wi-Fi and backed up before you update your phone's software, make sure there is nothing on storage that you can't' afford to lose. Newer operating systems might not be optimized for older or lower-cost phones. iPhone: Go to "Settings," then "General," and then "Software Update."

 

5. Remove live wallpaper

It is not helping. Live wallpaper is a fun feature to show off your new smartphone, but much like widgets, they eat up a lot of memory and battery life. Over time, live wallpaper will slow down your phone and kill its efficiency.
