How to speed up your Android ICS or Jelly Bean phone
- The most common advice that you will get when you ask how to make your android phone run faster ? is to do a factory reset. While this seems to fix the issue, please understand that its only a temporary solution, the moment you install the apps back the problem of sluggishness and lags will reappear. So factory reset is not the solution.
- Second advice is to install a Task Killer . Again the problem is that its temporary for few minutes, the tasks again start and you have to keep killing them. So this option also did not work for me. Although i used it for many months without any results. Task Killer on the other hand, may be the problem in itself. Task killers aren't needed in Android. Android manages tasks by itself. Killing tasks may actually be slowing the system down. Killing a task before its done just causes it to respawn, sucking up CPU cycles.
- Installing so called "RAM Booster" or Memory Booster apps. There are tons of them. But they are also not much different from Task killers. People try to package same things under different names to make money. I dont know where the get 5 star ratings. but believe me its not a solution to sluggishness or slowness.
There are instances like Jellybean update for Samsung Galaxy Note made the phones lot slower. Why is that ?. Its because of Android RAM management and cleanup is not as superior. But to enjoy other goodies that Android offers you must solve the problem.
What may work. Try one of the below.
1. You may have downloaded lot of applications and it must be hogging your device memory. Goto Application manager and move all the applications to SD Card. You can transform you rom on a Bareboned Rom to make it as fast as possible, e.i. deleting all useless apps!! .
