How to speed up Android on every smartphone

Millions of people around the world use Android smartphones and, although of different brands, it is roughly the same system, with its pros and cons depending on the version installed by the manufacturer.
On the most expensive smartphones Android always runs very fast even with many apps and games, driven by a latest generation processor and with quantities of RAM memory that now exceed 4 GB.
For many other cheaper models, however, the problem of slowing down is quite normal and natural, especially after a few months of use (but also trust some high-end smartphones after a few years slow down a lot!).
One of the things users need to know is that Android slows down over time ; this is taking advantage of updates and installed applications that become bigger and heavier.
You can therefore have a problem of out of space in the internal memory, a problem of insufficient RAM memory or a continuous lag that does not even allow you to use the Facebook app fluently.
Below, we have collected everything we can do to speed up Android with and without root, so that we can speed up any type of device.

To keep Android as fast or as fast as possible on an old mobile phone, without having to root, it is important to use it taking into account these recommendations.
With these points in mind, not only will you have a faster smartphone to open applications, but you will also be able to make the battery last longer.
Speed ​​up Android without root
Below we have collected all the methods that we can use on a smartphone without active root permissions (the vast majority, since this operation invalidates the warranty).
1) Find out what's slowing down your Android device
To see exactly what is taking up resources on the Android smartphone we can go to Settings -> Memory and press Memory again to find out which apps are active and occupy RAM.
Note that this screen may be in different settings sections depending on the phone used.
For better control over memory, we can read the article on how to free up RAM on Android.
Although their effectiveness may be limited, an App Booster can be used to optimize memory and terminate Android processes
2) We never fill the internal memory
The space of the internal memory is not to be confused with that of the SD card, since it is the physical memory where the Android system stores apps, data and configurations.
In every computer the full disk has, as an indirect effect, the slowdown of its tasks and this also applies to Android phones, because a part of the memory is used as an app cache and as a space to install new updates: if we fill it, it will slow down all.
When we choose a new smartphone, we take this aspect into consideration: we now focus only on models with at least 64 GB of internal memory .
Being this a frequent problem we have seen at least 4 articles and guides for:
- Free up space on Android memory and SD card
- Survive with Android with full internal memory or out of space on the phone
- Solve insufficient space on Android
- Gain memory space on your smartphone: what to delete "> disable Android animations and transition effects, so as to limit the workload and battery consumption.
5) Update your smartphone and apps
The phone update should appear as a notification if available, otherwise it can be forced by going to the Settings menu -> About phone and clicking System updates (this menu can also be found in other places, depending on the phone model).
An update of the operating system can bring new functions, but above all solve the problems of slowdowns and bugs that afflict the phone, especially if this is new (many problems come to light only after the sale).
We advise you to read our guide How to update Android on the subject
6) Remove background applications
RAM in cheap smartphones can often be insufficient to handle too many open or background applications, which often happens with modern apps (they remain in memory).
It is therefore advisable to uninstall the ones that keep processes active and take up more memory or alternatively use the tools offered by the phone to avoid automatic startup and persistence in the memory of too heavy apps.
In another article we can find the guide to manage the active apps in Android, processes and RAM of the mobile phone.
7) Deactivate or uninstall apps that you don't use
Downloaded applications that are not used should be removed completely.
We have therefore seen in another article the guide to uninstall apps on Android completely.
On smartphones, however, it may be impossible to uninstall apps pre-installed or provided as sponsors; in this case it is better to disable the useless apps so that they do not update and do not take up memory.
8) Exit unused Google apps
Some Google apps are responsible for slowdowns and excessive battery consumption.
For each of these apps it is better to go to the account settings, select the email address and then find and press the Exit key.
In particular there are:
- Hangouts which can be replaced with an alternative SMS messaging app for Android such as Google Messenger.
- Google+, a now closed social network that consumes memory and energy.
- Google voice assistant, for which we have written a guide to Disable Ok Google, Now tabs and search bar on Android.
Regarding Google apps, it is better never to disable them because they can be vital for the functioning of others.
9) Install a lighter launcher
The most evident slowdowns on Android smartphones can be seen in the launcher: freezes, blocks and shots that show up when we change apps, when we change tabs or when we open the app drawer.
If the launcher provided by the manufacturer slows down too much and the shots are now too evident, we recommend changing the launcher by installing a lighter one, such as Lawnchair Launcher .
Alternatively, we recommend reading the guide The best fast and light Android launchers.
10) Factory reset
If everything fails and you don't want to go to the root solution, you can try to completely restore the device.
It is not ideal, because all data is deleted, but if we have a backup of Android data, i.e. the address book and photos, we can do it safely without losing anything.
To do this, go to Settings> System and use the Reset or Reset Android option.

Speed ​​up Android with root
If instead we managed to unlock root on the Android smartphone, there are various things that can be done to speed up Android more effectively than using an Android smartphone without root.
1) Install a different ROM
You can lighten the system by installing a different version of Android, tailored to your phone's capabilities and above all free from useless apps.
LineageOS, the best Android ROM, is compatible with almost every phone model, including Samsung, LG, Huawei etc. and it is clearly more powerful as well as more complete with every option and easier to install than the ROMs offered by the manufacturers.
Let's give it a chance, we won't be disappointed!
In order to install it on our smartphone, we recommend reading the guide -> Install CyanogenMod (LineageOS), the best Android ROM, on your mobile phone .
2) Install apps to upgrade your phone
There are numerous apps that require root permissions and allow, through them, to block useless apps, freeze those in memory to avoid consuming RAM memory and use the memory of the SD card as system memory (more effectively than how does Android
- Greenify, very effective for increasing the battery life of Android which keeps apps not in use hibernating freeing up memory.
- Smart Booster, the most effective app to empty the RAM left occupied by closed applications.
- Link2SD to move all the apps to the SD card and free up the maximum space on the internal memory if very limited.
- All-In-One Toolbox, an all-in-one program to maximize the Android smartphone in all its aspects, so as to make it fast.
