Major Reasons Why Your Phone Slows Down Over Time and how to fixed it

Todays world everyone Is found using his own Android smartphone for day to day activities. If we have a look upon about an Android operating system, it is now powering the majority of smartphone. On Android you will found many people keep on installing different apps and games.

However, after six months of over usage, a loss of performance is spotted in every device running on any version of Android. Today we will not only talk about Android because the issue is present on iOS too. Users on both sides complain about their too slow than before.

There are many possible reasons, which makes our smartphones to slow down after several months’ usage but in this post, I am going to state the common reasons which lead to phone slowdown after some months of usage.

1  .      Apps Running On the Background: Other crucial things that we carelessness are the running background apps in your mobile phone. Trust me or not, you have almost 85% or more tan that application installed on your mobile device than when you first got it. To check your smart phone running application Just go to your phone’s settings click on application or apps now choose running, briefly look upon all your running application. Users might think that they have installed 10-15 apps, but are often shocked to see closer to 40-50. Those are inbuilt application they are added to the phone when it is created for example email services, messaging apps and much more. These apps use CPU and RAM, which actually impacts your phone’s performance.

2   .      App Updates: every time we keep on installing new applications and games on our Android and iOS devices. The so-called ‘lightweight’ apps that you install can be changed to ‘heavyweight’ over the time. The main cause behind this is application updates. Developers are continuously pushing updates, every new update brings new features, which ends up consuming lots of RAM and CPU.

3  .      The OS Upgrades: keep in mind, when you first bought your mobile device, it might be running Android KitKat or iOS 7. Both iOS 7 and Android KitKat were launched in the year 2013. so, these upgrades are released with a certain set of hardware specs in thought. If we have a look at the current year, hardware specifications have extremely updated. Many features have been added to both iOS and Android. However, these features are made with newer hardware specs in mind. So, if you are running the newer version of any operating system in an outdated phone then this can slow down your phone in no time. these upgrades are hard to ignore, so minor updates are okay, but if you are planning to jump from Android KitKat to Nougat then be ready to face the difficulties.

4  .      Higher Expectations: Sometimes, after looking at numerous high-end smartphones, we observe our phone to be slower. This is a normal human psychology, which regularly seeks for more and more. You can’t company Galaxy S3 with Galaxy S8. So, we should learn to accept it or upgrade our device.

5  .      Memory Degradation: Smartphones run on a flash memory, the most common type of flash memory is known as NAND. Let me tell you, NAND memory gets slower as it fills up. In short, NAND Memory needs some amount of vacant blocks to operate efficiently. Secondly, NAND memory degraded with some time of usage. NAND memory is of three types- SLC, MLC, TLC each one of them has to write cycle boundaries per memory cell. Once the limit is touched, the cells wear out and this affects the performance. The best thing to do here is to stick with 75% of your device’s total storage capacity. For example, if you are having 16GB internal storage, don’t cross the 10GB threshold.

How to fixed those problems

1.      Make sure to disable or uninstall the apps which consume lots of RAM and CPU, switch to static wallpaper and say goodbye to live wallpapers.
2.      once you feel the app is bloated, replace it with another lightweight app.
3.      Do not install a lot of Application by means of style just install the useful application and leave the rest
4.      Do not minimize application after using it unless it is very important or needed because it runs out the CPU and also the RAM.
5.      Always buy a phone that has higher RAM don’t look at physical design because the design doesn’t prove that the property is great.
