If when you hit the home button or launch a new app in your android device, it takes so long to switch to the new task or back to the desktop or maybe your Android phone has become so slow that letters appear a second or two after you type them. I must say you are quite fortunate to be at the right place, reading the right article. If you are able to apply just 50 percent of what is contained in this tutorial then you can easily speed up your Android device.  In Android, once you launch an application, it will continue to run in the background, even after you’ve left it and moved on to other tasks.  After enough applications are opened in a session, you may notice your device lagging a bit due to the number of open applications using up your device’s RAM. This tutorial will inform you on some of the reasons why your android device is slow and its solutions.


1. Uninstall Unused Apps

2. Close Background Apps in Android

In Android, once you launch an application, it will continue to run in the background, even after you’ve left it and moved on to other tasks. This effectively slows down your device because open applications make use of your device’s RAM.  To close the background applications; Launch the recent applications menu. Find the application(s) you want to close on the list by scrolling up from the bottom. Tap and hold on the application and swipe it to the right. This will kill the process from running and free up some RAM.

3. Clear Your App Cache

Over time, your programs write to the app cache on your android device eating up precious system resources and slowing everything down. You can clear the cache on all individual applications in your device  by visiting its property page in the Settings menu and tapping the clear cache button.

4. Remove Unnecessary Widgets and Shortcuts

Your android device will use more memory if more widgets and shortcuts is on its home screen. Look through your desktops for widgets you don’t absolutely need and remove them by long pressing and dragging them off screen.

5. Limit or Disable Background Data Usage

Your email,  Facebook, Twitter and backup app access the Internet for data on a regular basis. All the constant synchronizing not only eats up your battery, but also takes up system resources and slows your device down. Yes there are really some services you need to sync in real time, but there are others you can check manually. For example, if you don’t need to be alerted the moment you get a Facebook notification or receive an email to your personal account, you can prevent those apps from connecting to the internet in the background.  

To disable background data for all apps: Navigate to Settings, click on data usage. Launch the context menu by tapping the three dots in the upper left corner of the screen or hitting the menu button (on Samsung and LG phones). Now toggle auto sync data to off and tap Ok on the warning that comes up.

To disable background data for Gmail, Google+ and other Google Services: Navigate to settings click on Google under accounts, clickthe account name If the sync icon next to the account name is green, it has sync permission. If it is gray, syncing is already disabled. To turn off background data in other apps such as Facebook or the standalone email client,  you must go directly into their settings’ menus and find the option to never update or update manually.
