How to speed up an Android smartphone or tablet?

The presence of powerful “iron” does not always mean the quick operation of the device. In some cases, optimization leaves much to be desired and the user can try to speed up the work of their smartphone or tablet on their own. There are several methods that can help in the implementation of the task. About these methods – in our article.

Remove all unnecessary applications

There are applications that can use extra resources. If these applications are not used, it is worth uninstalling them..

This includes, but is not limited to, applications that are installed on the smartphone upon purchase. Some of them cannot be deleted, they are built into the firmware, others, if you do not need them, it is better to delete.

Do not use live wallpaper

Strange as it may seem, live wallpapers require additional resources. Of course, they look beautiful and pleasing to the eye, but if you need speed, you still need to say goodbye to them.

Do not use third-party launchers

Third-party launchers are also not recommended, as they can reduce the speed of the system. However, there are exceptions when a third-party launcher works faster than native firmware. However, this is the exception..

Do not use additional widgets

About the same thing can be said about widgets that can be placed in abundance on the desktop. Try to leave only those widgets that you really cannot do without, for example, a clock or a weather forecast. Other widgets should be removed from the desktop, as they may “eat up” the memory a little, but.

Disable unnecessary applications

There are applications that run in the background, but the need for them is rare. In this case, we are talking about third-party applications, not system ones, which are not recommended to be disabled, as this can lead to a system crash.

Disabling the application is simple. Go to the settings, find the section with applications, select the application you need, go into it and click “Stop”.

Turn off GPS and geolocation

Geolocation settings are very important, but they can only be used when necessary..

This, by the way, will help, among other things, increase the autonomy of the device.

Clean up using third-party apps

Do not forget to delete the cache and other temporary data, which can also affect the speed of the system. As a rule, these are third-party applications like Clean Master, which allow you to delete temporary files, but on some devices they are already embedded in the firmware.

Use GPU Acceleration

Go to the menu, find the section “For Developers” or “Developer Options”.

If you don’t see such a section at home, you need to enable it. Find the section “About phone”, “About tablet” or “About device”, go into it and click on “Build number” 7 times (sometimes you need to press a little more times, the system will tell you about it).

In the developer options, enable forced processing of the GPU (hardware acceleration 2D in applications).

At the same time, you can turn off the animation. Find items like “Window animation scale”.

Turn off the animation. Just be careful when editing the parameters, some of them can lead to problems in the system.

Update firmware

Sometimes performance problems are associated with the firmware itself, which are solved by updating this firmware. Therefore (and not only) it is so important to update the software of your smartphone or tablet in time.
