Tips to improve performance in our smartphonesUsually, smartphones have incredible performance at the beginning and there are no complaints at all, but as time goes on and we begin to download apps and fill the storage of our mobiles, that is when the system starts to become slow, though this is not the only reason for which smartphones get slow, rather for not using it the right way. We always have to take full advantage of the performance that a smartphone can deliver, even if it is a high end or low end smartphone, we always have to find a way to make it work according to our needs no matter what generation of phone it is.

Many users exceed the limits and do experience many difficulties that a large quantity of users wouldn’t dare to experience due to the fact that we also might damage our mobiles if we use these superuser permissions wrongly. The performance of a smartphone is always affected either by apps, the durability of the phone itself (Old generation smartphones) or by harmful apps. In Vofeel we deal with all kinds of users, if you are superuser on your smartphone or not, here we’ll give you some tips on how to improve the performance of your smartphone.

Clean up the quick access memory

The quick access memory also known as “Cache” is the memory which is being used and saved to, it doesn’t have to load completely before being shown, in browsers it is commonly used to save temporal information to be used in the moment we need it; however this memory accumulates so much that sometimes it exceeds its’ storage limits because In most cases it isn’t cleaned automatically. It is recommended to use a light app or a widget that gives you quick access such that by just pressing a button our cache memory is cleaned.

Uninstall apps by default (Root)

This trick is only possible if we have superuser permissions in our smartphone. There are many unnecessary apps that our system adds by default, some of them are necessary to run some processes (services) and shouldn’t be deleted unless you want to reinstall the firmware at the time of manufacture in order to make it work again. Uninstalling some apps such as Google Play Books or Google Play Music will be more beneficial because apart of having a large internal storage, we’ll be able to download more apps and leave aside unnecessary apps that only consume storage, performance and battery.

Save all in SD memory

The apps usually have an auto save by default which is the internal storage, most of them have this option enabled by default making the use of the SD memory card unnecessary. What’s recommended is to change this setting in apps and save all your information to the external memory and make more space in the internal storage where only apps will be saved. All information that can be optional such as pictures, videos and music among others… it will be adequate to save them on the SD memory.

In case you are a super user with apps such as Link2SD (Android) it will be possible to transfer your own apps to the SD memory, it is not recommended to transfer apps that keep the active services of our smartphone functioning because once we remove the SD memory we would lose these important apps and our smartphone could collapse and stop functioning, but apps such as Link2SD do not allow you to transfer important apps.

Avoid high consuming apps

Applications such as the official client of Facebook which is always active, consuming energy and keeping your mobile data active for better functioning are the kind of apps you should avoid, it wouldn’t be bad to have one or two but when the user makes it a habit of keeping these apps active all day the energy and performance of our mobile phone will be compromised. There are alternatives such as Facebook Lite which consumes less resources than the Facebook app.

Not install performance apps

One of the biggest frauds in the app stores are those apps that claim to improve the performance of your smartphone; one app that is maintained active all day alongside another, doesn’t make sense. it might Probably but having it opened all day, monitoring every movement on the web, movements between apps, services and a bunch of things; instead of making our phones faster, it would slow it down.
