If you've had your Android device for a year or more, the chances are it isn't quite as nippy as it used to be. And it's all your fault!
You've almost definitely put too much rubbish on it so it's time to do a little spring clean with these five helpful tips to boost the performance of your little Android solider, and none of these tips requires additional applications.
And that's the first tip. Check through your applications and uninstall any you don't use. You'll probably discover you don't use as many as 50% of the apps you've downloaded from Googleplay.
A huge source of junk will be your photo gallery. All those pictures you've taken and never use are taking up space, creating thumbnails and basically hogging resources you want back so have a real good hunt through your photo albums and decide what you need. If pictures have been taken for social media sites like instagram, facebook and twitter, great, you've uploaded them, now get rid of them!
The next tip is to go to your downloads center which you can access through your application drawer and delete any files you're certain you no longer need. Files will be organised by time so you need to press on the appropriate date to locate older files.
Now while I delete these old downloaded files let me explain what caching does. When you use an application frequently, it will store data so it can be accessed quickly. In the short term it's great because it means applications will run more quickly. But over time that cached data clogs up and it may continue to cache data that's not used any more. So every once in a while it's a good idea to clean it all out and start afresh.
To do this go to settings and then choose the more tab and select storage. Next click on cached data and that will give you the option to delete it all.
And while you're in that screen you can also choose the Miscellaneous files option and have a peruse around there and delete anything you're certain you no longer need, although do approach with a little caution. If you don't know what it is, don't delete it.
Now if your device has an expansion slot for a micro SD card, it's also worth having a good rummage around there too. The sensible thing to do is to back up everything that's there on your computer and then you can format the card and start from scratch.
Again this does come with a word of warning, some app data and even complete apps can be stored on your SD card and don't be surprised if an app suddenly disappears. You can download it from Googleplay again or pick it up from the backup you just put on your computer. If you're unsure, just stick to photos and files you're certain you can delete.
And finally, if your phone is still hopelessly sluggish (say that five times quickly), you might have to take the extreme measure and perform a factory reset that will delete everything off your phone. That should make it run as if it were new, but it will also be empty of anything you ever put on the device, so backup and good luck.
To perform a factory reset, go to settings, then choose the accounts tab and finally go to back and restore. Choose factory data reset and following the instructions on screen. Remember kids, this is a last resort.
