5 things you can do BEFORE downloading an App to “optimize” your Android

Diolinux

In the midst of so many Apps that promise to improve the performance of your Smartphone there are manual measures that can “save the day” without you having to clog your Smartphone with software to do maintenance.

Check out 5 tips that can be used on any Smartphone, especially those with more modest hardware.

Before putting the details here, let’s clarify the “mystique” that involves Android’s RAM consumption, we have a special video on the channel on the subject, check it out:

Now let’s go to the «TOP 5» things you can do before downloading an optimizer for Android. Many of the Apps will simply create “shortcuts” for each of these commented functions, stay tuned:

1 – KEEP THE DEVICE UPDATED

Everyone should be up to date at all times, be it about news around the world, about the sportingbet promo code, in the accounts payable for the month, even your football team, etc.

With an operating system the logic should be no different.

It is important to keep your Android always up to date, especially because Google renews the platform to compete with its competitors and manufacturers often end up taking a long time to deliver these updates, it is important to stay tuned.

This can vary a little according to a possible Custom ROM (made by manufacturers or by the community) but in the device settings menu and in the “About Device” section, it is possible to update the system, preventing more errors and leaving the device still faster.

The point is that updates usually bring bug fixes, in addition to any new features, these fixes can positively impact the vitality of the battery and the performance of the system itself. The same goes for the Apps that you install, often an outdated App can serve as a catalyst for problems, be it security, or because the App has a bug that causes it to consume more device resources than it should, etc.

2 – IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM

Sometimes, when an application “chokes”, it is not the fault of the processor or the Smartphone, as many lay people think, but of the software itself. So it is necessary to analyze well and find out what is the problem that is causing the performance drop in the Smartphone.

There are several applications that display the performance of the system in detail, in which it is possible to view information on traffic from mobile networks, use of RAM memory, among other functions; with that, you can combat poor performance “at the root” of the problem.

I know that identifying the problem may not be a simple step for any user, which is why many people pay a technician to solve their problems with the technology, but in fact, understanding what causes the problem can help you solve it and if your Smartphone is behaving «weird», surely something is wrong.

3 – CLEAN APPS CACHES

The cache can serve very well for applications to open faster, however, if any error or problem in the App ends up being cached too, it may be because of this feature, depending on how the App was programmed, the cache that was to be the “good guy in the story” end up as “the villain”.

Through the “Settings” menu it is possible to access the programs and clear the cache in the application’s storage section. This can reduce the incidence of “gagging” on the Smartphone.

In Smartphones with little storage memory, the cache that many Apps added together end up filling up the free space, and if there is one thing that makes any computer (including pocket computers) slower, it is lack of space, so if you is suffering from choking due to lack of storage, deleting some files and the cache can really get around the situation.

4 – DISABLE ANIMATIONS

In the «Developer» options, you can disable the transition animations for Android. Since there will be no effect on transitions between applications, the process is much faster. Although the lack of animations is not visually pleasing for all users, it is a possibility to avoid crashes, and it is possible to enable the effects normally whenever desired.

This makes the graphic processing of your Smartphone easier, on more modest devices, it can make a big difference and cause a feeling of greater fluidity and speed.

5 – REMOVE UNUSED APPLICATIONS

Although there is often an attachment to an application that is no longer being used, removing it can be the best way to improve the performance of your Android. The more software on the device, the more the system needs to allocate its resources to them.

Many Apps, even if you don’t use them so often, end up running in the background and consuming unnecessary resources, since you don’t use them.

With the phone’s internal memory full, the device tends to slow down. Cleaning your Smartphone is like cleaning a closet: although it is difficult to get rid of excess, it is always necessary to let go.

Another interesting option is to consider lighter versions of Apps to do the same things, or even access services in another way.

In general, unless you need a specific feature, access Facebook through the App Facebook Lite instead of the traditional App it can be more advantageous, or even through the system’s own browser. The same can be said of almost any social network that is possible to access and interact through the browser.

Apps like the Google Chrome browser, usually included in all Androids, allow you to create shortcuts to the websites on your Android home to access them directly as if they were applications, this can be a great way out for you in case you need more space or suffering from a specific App.

With these tips you may avoid installing even more applications on your Smartphone for maintenance, although many of them may be useful at some level, in general, all the necessary and possible basic adjustments to make optimizations of this type are already in the system itself .

To the next!
