Improving Android’s performanceGoogle services in the Android operating system have always been extremely useful; the ability to synchronize is one of them. Google synchronization is very important because it enables you to have everything at the exact moment you need them. Just like when an email arrives, if it’s not synchronized it’ll arrive when opening the application; however, if it’s synchronized, the information will arrive in real time. Just like its synchronization, Google offers plenty of services that help at stability and organization of the flow of information between web applications, social networks and internet services in our smartphone.

Google also offers to their Android users the option of changing some features, alerting that this can modify some functions, because many services are working altogether for the stable optimization of the operating system or any other specific application. A big part of the Google services can be temporally deactivated; however, it can’t be erased, even some of them are hidden as applications consuming the memory of the smartphone. At some point, they can be reactivated or they could be needed to run some applications. Some of these services are like applications by default and it’s not recommended to erase them.

Improving performance, removing services

Services maintain some functions of the Android operating system stable, but they’re not always necessary. Some of them are extra features by default. These services consume smartphone performance, wasting so much more in the ones without enough memory space to save plenty of applications; high end and low range smartphones. When we have a smartphone with a short memory space (in storage as well as in RAM) we better exclude some unnecessary services to unlock space and to keep our RAM memory occupied in needed applications and services.

Why do we have to deactivate the synchronization?

Synchronization is a service that helps the flow of information in applications and internet services.  We can administrate our device to synchronize it. Google has offered this service to maintain a better connection, in real time, with information; however, we can deactivate some synchronization options to avoid the synchronization of the whole content. It should be emphasized that synchronization not just restores information but, day after day, it’s saving everything that it recognizes and detect.

Deactivating synchronization or just some features will give us a better smartphone performance. It’ll also depend whether if it’s one or two accounts that are synchronizing at the same time. Here, in Vofeel, we’ll teach you how to deactivate the whole Google synchronization, or just some of its’ features.

  • Go to Settings and then, select the Account option or Accounts and Sync option, depending on your operating system.
  • Once you are there, select a synchronized account; usually, it’s displayed on your Google account. You’ll have to select it.
  • Within an account, you’ll see the entire activated or deactivated features. To activate them, they must be on the right part or with a little mark (it’ll depend on your Android version).

Note: in some operating system versions of Android there exists an option called Automatic Sync which will be enough to deactivate your smartphone synchronization in every single account.

Recommendations

It’s a good thing to have the synchronization feature activated, but not every feature or service activated is good for your smartphone. This Android service is very useful to save information, such as; contacts, emails, messages, application data, amongst others. Nevertheless, having every feature and many accounts synchronizing will affect your smartphones’ performance, as well as the smartphones’ battery life, which is not very convenient in high and low end smartphones.
