The reason why you’re here is either: A.) You’ve just bought yourself a snazzy new Samsung phone months ago and its performance isn’t as fast as it was since day one or B.) You just want to see how you can push the Android to its maximum potential.
It’s normal for smartphones to get a little sluggish over time. Not because of the device, itself, but because of the storage and performance demands of the newer programs & OS upgrades that you download on your phone.
Fortunately, there are a few things you may attempt to get your Samsung up and running at full speed again. Here are the best ways to do just that:
- Clear App Cache and Free Storage
What is cached data? Basically, it’s just temporary storage to improve your user experience if you repeatedly visit a website or app. It may hinder the speed of your phone, so it’s important to clear some space from time to time.
- Go to your device Settings.
- Choose Apps.
- Select a frequently used app, such as Chrome. Then select Storage.
- In the lower right corner, click the Clear Cache icon.
- Rep these procedures for each of your device’s apps.
- Reduce Animations
This is supposed to be the first thing you’ll have to do when you get your Samsung. Changing the animator scale in transition allows you to go from screen to screen faster and a universe of wonders can be created with a simple modification.
To make your phone snappier all you have to do is:
- Enable Developer options by going Settings > About phone > System Section > Build number
- Tap Build number 7 times and you should see a message pop out on being a developer
- Go back to the main Settings menu, you’ll see that Developer options have been unlocked
- Scroll down and find Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale.
- Set each one to 0.5x or off, whatever suits you.
- Enable Power Mode at Battery
You can have better efficiency in high-performance mode. You can get higher system speed and the highest quality settings. To do that all you have to do is:
- Choose Device Care in Settings
- Choose Battery > Power Mode
- Select High performance > Brightness: No increase > Screen resolution: WQHD
- Add Device Care Widget
Going to the Settings app might be cumbersome. This is the most convenient hack you can do. Enable your phone’s speed to turbo mode with just a single button. Here’s how you can do it:
- Press and hold on the Home screen
- Choose Widgets
- Choose the Device Care widget and add it to your home screen
- Restart Your Phone At Least Once A Week
It’s the simplest hack of them all but it works miracles for your Samsung. Your phone functions similarly to a PC and other electronic devices. You don’t want it to be on all the time.
At some point, you’ll have to turn it off. You’ll notice a noticeable increase in responsiveness after that.
