Your Android phone started off running smoothly and responding instantly to every tap, but over time, even the fastest phone will start to show its age. And with a device you use as much as your smartphone, every missed swipe or extra moment waiting for an app to load can feel like an eternity.
Clear your Cached Data (30 seconds)
Your apps are constantly caching small pieces of data, which typically will speed up the performance of your phone. But if your device is running low on storage, cached data will start hurting more than it helps. Here’s how to clear it out and start fresh.
Navigate to Settings on your phone.You can find settings in the app drawer.
Tap Cached data.
Disable Animations (1 minute)
Animations make all of the transitions and interactions with your operating system appear more fluid — right up until your phone starts slowing down and those animations start looking like stop-motion video. If the animations aren’t flowing so well anymore, turning them off completely will both look better and free up a little processing power.
