It can be frustrating when your Android smartphone is not performing well, especially when it is built with the capacity to do better than it is doing.

You can fix such problems with the smartphone within some minutes by learning some of these tips to speed up and enhance the performance of your Android smartphone.

Sometimes if you feel that your Android smartphone is “acting strange”, a reboot (restarting the phone) may solve the problem. In fact, rebooting can preemptively fix some problems before they occur.

These “temp” files and consumption of other resources can cause your smartphone to slow down, and in extreme cases even come to a complete halt. You will often find that simply rebooting your smartphone can cause it to run faster and with fewer problems.

Another tip is to shut down apps that are not being used. When running multiple apps in the background the smartphone may be slower than usual. Try shutting down apps you are not using. It will help free up processing power and memory for better performance.

If after doing all of these your smartphone is still performing “abnormal”, you can try installing an antivirus. A good antivirus application will scan your phone for any possible viruses and malware, which can be the cause of your device being slow.

Finally, if all the above fails, try performing a factory reset to restore your phone to the state it was when you first bought it. This may help get rid of apps and data causing it to slow down. But remember that you may lose your stored data, apps, images and music in the process.
