    DID YOU K OW YOU CAN SPEED UP YOUR DEVICE? Speed Up Your Device There are various ways to speed up your device’s performance, and a few things you can do to make it feel faster. This week on Did You Know, we look at those ways of speeding up our device's performance. Read to the very end of this thread and you will find it helpful Make sure you’re up to date The latest software will often contain bug fixes and general improvements and it can help your Android device to run better. Software updates tend to come OTA (Over The Air) and you should be automatically prompted to install them, but it doesn’t hurt to check. Go to*Settings > About device > Software or system update*and check for updates. The same applies to apps, so open Play Store, open the menu at the top left and tap*My apps*and make sure all of the apps you use are up to date. Clean up your home screen If you choose to use live wallpaper, then consider replacing it with a good static image. You should also clean away any unused icons and limit your widgets to the essentials. The less cluttered your home screen is, the better in terms of performance. Uninstall and disable unused apps There are lots of apps on your device but you know you use just few of them. So, just uninstall those apps you don’t use or you can just use the freezer app on your home screen for it purpose and that is to freeze or disable apps. This will help free up both ram and rom thus speeding up your device. Turn off or reduce animations You can make your Android device feel snappier by reducing or turning off some of animations. You’ll need to enable*Developer options*in order to do this. Go to*Settings > About phone*and scroll down to the*System*section to look for*Build number. Tap on it seven times and you should see a message about being a developer. You can now go back to the previous menu and you should see*Developer options*listed under*System. Head in there and scroll down to find*Window animation scale,*Transition animation scale, and*Animator duration scale. Tap each in turn and set it to*.5x*or*off. Pick an option and find out what suits you, if you don’t like just go back in and change the values again. Clear cached app data Cached data for apps should help them to load more quickly, but it can build up over time to take up quite a lot of space and there will potentially be cached data in there for apps that you no longer use. Sometimes clearing cached data for an app can also help clear up flaky behavior. Turn off*auto-sync Most of us end up adding a list of different accounts to our Android devices and we allow them to automatically sync in the background to pull in new data and provide us with updates. All this syncing has a big impact on performance, not to mention battery life. You could go to*Settings*and find*Auto-sync*under*Accounts*and just turn it off altogether. Perform a factory reset This is a drastic step, but some people recommend that you do a factory reset periodically if you want your device running in tip-top condition. It’s a shortcut to cleaning up your device and getting rid of any junk you’ve accumulated, but it means wiping all of the data and settings. If you decide to try it then make sure you back up everything that’s important to you first. You can find the option to do it in*Settings> Backup & reset > Factory data reset. With all the above, you will speed up your device. If it was very helpful, leave a comment. If it wasn't helpful, leave a comment. STAY TUNED FOR MORE \ud83d\udc4a
