A slow smartphone leads to frustration, whether you're booting up an online game or checking your text messages. However, you don't have to give up on your phone just because it's gotten a little lethargic. Instead, try these safe, simple hacks to make your smartphone faster.


Remove Transition Animations

You might have noticed that your iPhone produces animated transitions between screens. While these animations might seem simple, they can slow down your phone when you need its memory most. Fortunately, you can disable animations in iOS 7, which will free up memory for other tasks. This process will also remove the parallax effects from icons and other on-screen graphics.


Find the settings app on your iPhone, click on the General tab, and find the menu labeled Accessibility. Just tap the Reduce Motion option. It will shift from off to on, disabling animations. Restart the device to apply the change. Now your phone can devote its resources to games, apps, texting, and streaming instead of delivering flashy animations on the interface.


Clear Your Phone's Memory


Even though the Apple iPhone 7 features 32GB of memory, you might need to clear the memory to make space for new data. In older versions of iOS, you had to factory reset the device to clear the memory. That meant losing all of your contacts, game progress, text messages, and call logs. However, the latest versions give you a shortcut that doesn't put your valuable data at risk.


First, back up your phone to the iCloud after connecting to Wi-Fi. Consider doing this once a month or so to protect your data. Next, hold down the Sleep button for several seconds. The screen for shutting down your smartphone should appear. Release the Sleep button and hold down the Home button. When the Home screen comes up, you'll know that you've successfully flushed your iPhone's memory.


Move Your Photos to External Storage


If you don't want to clear your phone's memory entirely, but your device seems sluggish, consider shifting your photos and other files to the cloud or external storage. You can do this with both iOS and Android devices. Simply connect your device to your computer, external hard drive, or the cloud, find where your photos are stored on your phone, and move them over to the other device.


Many people take hundreds of photos every month with their smartphones. Clearing them out will make more storage space for future photos, and you won't consume as much of your smartphone's memory, which should make the device run faster.


Remove Unused Files and Apps


Running too many apps can turn your smartphone into a sluggish machine. You might have downloaded many apps since you bought the phone, then never even used some of them. Take a tour through your apps list and delete any that you no longer use.


Next, go through your photo and video files. In addition to moving them to other storage, you can also delete files that you no longer want. Blurry photos, dark videos, and other undesirable files often linger on smartphones even though they'll never be posted on Facebook, printed out, sent to friends, or even looked at again.


Delete the Browser Cache


If you use your smartphone to browse the internet, delete the browser cache every week or two. The cache files take up significant space on your smartphone's hard drive, which can slow it down. You can empty the browser cache no matter which browser you use. Typically, you'll enter the browser settings and find the History menu. From there, you can delete the cache and anything else you no longer need.


Keep in mind that your smartphone might even store browser information from other devices if they're connected on the same Wi-Fi network. If you use your home computer, tablet, or other devices to surf the web, delete the browser caches on all devices to help them run faster.


Don't spend all day staring at loading screens or waiting for your browser to catch up. Instead, try these suggestions to make your smartphone faster and more convenient.

Virtually everyone owns a smartphone and uses it daily. In fact, it has been shown that within the first 15 minutes of waking up in the morning to just before falling asleep at night people habitually check their phones. From email to photos, calls to SMS messages, apps to games, there are an inexhaustive number of activities that mobile phones offer. As a result, phones get cluttered. What once worked with impressive speed when purchased half a year ago, now starts to slow. This can be a major annoyance as well as hindering the performance of your device. Fortunately, most big brand smartphones like Apple or Samsung allow users to run a diagnostic check to identify what applications or folders are taking up the most space and causing the phone to slow. Even worse that a slow speed is when the smartphone freezes and can even crash. There is nothing worse than needing to make a call or compose a message and not being able to because of the inefficiency of your phone. While instructions vary per mobile device, running a diagnostic usually requires accessing settings then device care. From here, there is a layout of how much storage and memory is available and also which apps are in disuse (also called ‘Sleeping apps'). Most phones then allow the Optimize to free up space. By doing this, the phone not only runs faster and more efficient but also increases the battery life to keep the device running longer after charges.


Probably the biggest culprit of gobbling space is photos, and especially videos. Having a portable camera is extremely convenient and so many users are guilty of taking multiple selfies to scroll through. In the digital era, most of these photos remain on the phone and never get deleted or transferred to computer or hard drive. It is useful to backup photos on an account, like cloud, on a laptop or external hard drive as this frees up substantial space on the storage as well as protects your photos in case your phone is lost or damaged. An external SD card that can be placed into most phones is also very handy as this can add many more Gigabytes of space and, if ever the card fills up through the years, it can be simply removed and replaced with a fresh one or transferred to a laptop. Again, an external SD card also saves your photos or video if the phone crashes or breaks. Even when users do a sweep of their phone, deleting any goofy photos and blurry images or lengthy space eating videos, the deleted items can be sent to the ‘trash folder'. Most times anything in the trash gets automatically deleted after around 15 days, but sometimes this setting is not enabled and photos or documents remain there forever - unknown to the user who thought they have cleared out their phone. Therefore, double check and erase all documents in the trash to not waste space. Deleting any stored cache or browsing history can also free up space, especially when it has been collected over a long period of time. Once all the photos, videos, and documents have been secured via transfer to another device or platform like Google Photos or iCloud, then some users may opt for a hard reset of their phone. This returns the smartphone to its factory settings, that is how the phone appeared brand new.


Another area that takes up a lot of phone storage are certain elaborate apps and games. Furthermore, these apps can also continually update and add more features and visual settings that consume additional space over time. For many people it is not only the size of the app or game that can cause their phone to slow, but the quantity that they have downloaded - and most often rarely use. The fact that a majority of apps or games are free to download gives into the temptation to create a database, with even the smaller size apps adding up to take up considerable size. One way to prevent this is to analyze and rank which apps that you use most every day to a few times a week and those that are inessential, and you rarely use. Delete or uninstall these unused apps. Smartphones are also great at providing a visual breakdown of how much space each app or game users and further the last time you have opened that particular app. If the last time is over a month ago and it takes up around 1GB of space, it is best to junk it. Another technique, particular for gaming on smartphone, is to play online games more than those that require downloading. As most places offer wifi, this option is feasible since downloaded multi-level games can be notorious for slowing phone speed and performance. For instance, online casino sites have particularly proven themselves experts at focusing on mobile gameplay for slot games - accessible via internet. Mobile slots have simple and straightforward controls, with a grid of 5 reels, about 3 or 4 rows, a number of paylines, and features and bonus rounds that can award thrilling payouts of real money. Further, as these mobile slots are online, they do not eat up any space on the smartphone as an actual device. A few great mobile slots are Eyecon's classic ‘Fluffy Favourites', Yggdrasil's visually stunning ‘Ahoha!' for a trip to Hawaii, and Playtech's cheerful ‘Irish Luck' online, as well as many more with different themes and rewards on offer.


As with photos and videos occupying lots of space on a phone, music is another area that can bite a chunk of space from the device. While it is a convenience downloading songs on the smartphone, when a user has a collection of thousands that is when the problems can start. Investing in an ipod is useful to designate songs to a device and save space on the phone. Otherwise, consider installing and subscribing to a music listen app such as Spotify that is designed to download songs offline with as little space as possible.


These tips and tricks should free up most space on any smartphone and increase the device speed and performance. Of course, conserving mobile space also requires mindfulness. Pay closer attention to the apps and games that you value and are essential and those that you can do without. Also, sift through and narrow down the countless selfies and transfer those long videos of a squirrel in the park. Then you can rest assured that you will be able to capture something important when it does happen rather than miss an opportunity because of a weighted down phone.


 



Yesterday, Samsung unveiled their range of Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 1.0 memory cards to the world and they will have significant advantages over micro-SD cards that we use now. These are specifically targeted towards D-SLR and 3D VR cameras, along with action cameras and even drones! Apart from the standard 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, the UFS 1.0 cards will offer even a 256GB variant.


If you are like us, you must be wondering what advantage it will give you over traditional micro-SD, when using it in a smartphone. The answer to that is better 3D gaming on phones that use their external memory as the first choice and faster, smoother 4K and VR media playback. The UFS card will read data at a speed of 530MBps, which will put it in the same category as a standard SATA Solid State Hard Disc used in full fledged computers! To give you an idea of the speed, consider the fact that the next time you are transferring a movie on to your UFS card, every GB of data will just take 2 seconds to write onto it. That's five times more than what micro-SD cards are capable of right now and very impressive.

The Galaxy S7 is arguably the best smartphone manufactured by Samsung's and it has passed with flying colors in stress tests like water resistance and substantial drop tests. Now we have a point to point comparison of the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s is terms speed and it can be seen that iPhone has won the race in real world performance.


Jerome Ortega, a YouTube channel owner did a performance test of many top devices like the Moto X Pure Edition, the Nexus 6P, the Galaxy S7 edge, and the iPhone 6s Plus.


All of these smartphones are running on a newly installed OS without any sim card along with same set of apps. This test was done to find out how quickly each device runs a series of applications.


In this scenario, the iPhone 6S Plus is backed by 2GB RAM and a dual-core A9 SoC, whereas the Galaxy S7 edge is backed by 4GB RAM and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Tests have proved that, performance wise the new Snapdragon 820 CPU doesn't exceed the A9.


Contrary to the belief that the Galaxy S7 edge will emerge as the faster device, it is shocking to see the iPhone surpassing the latest competitor smoothly (check out the scores in the image above). The iPhone 6s Plus completed the test cycle 17 seconds before the Galaxy S7 edge.


The iPhone 6s is faster than the Galaxy S7 edge, which is quite commendable. It will worthwhile to note that the speed of Nexus 6P is almost same to the Galaxy S7 edge and Moto X Pure is at the bottom.

wireless charge

 

Wireless charging is pretty awesome but Unfortunately, it is slow and already starting to lag behind the latest wired charging speeds. Freescale wants to help bring things back closer to parity with new hardware that could allow you to wirelessly charge devices up to 3x faster.

 

The basic idea behind the speed increase is the same as with newer USB chargers, which can feed a higher voltage to your device, pushing about 14 watts of power instead of the traditional 5 watts. Freescale has developed new hardware that can push 15 watts of power wirelessly. The downside is that right now, it requires new hardware in both your smartphone and charging pad. So, you can't just get this going.

 

wireless charging

 

It should be noted that the Qi standard does actually support up to 120 watt charging, if the hardware can handle it. Freescale says that it will have chips and reference designs ready for Q1 2015. so, it seems likely that we'll be seeing fast wireless charging hardware sooner rather than later.

Google fiber

 

Some residents of Minneapolis, Minnesota will soon have access to superfast Internet, thanks to US Internet, which has recently announced that it will offer a mind-boggling 10Gbps broadband speed to both residential and small-business owners in the city. Just to give you an idea, this is 10 times the speed of Google Fiber, which is currently available in Kansas City; Provo, Utah, and Austin, Texas.

 

Fiber

 

"The launch of our 10 Gbps Internet service will make Minneapolis the first city in the world to receive access to the Internet at speeds never before experienced in our country, or any other country for that matter," U.S. Internet CEO Joe Caldwell said in a statement. The service will be available for $400/month + a $99 installation fee.
