The recent launch of Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge has been a success and received a huge applause from the smartphone lovers.
Long back, we have seen the Galaxy S3 I9300 smartphone from the Samsung manufacturers and the surprising fact is that many users still using this device as their primary handset. By keeping all the users in mind, we are going to share few tips using which once can easily speed up the phone for better performance in just 5 minutes. So, not just relax back and go through the below processes and make your phone faster.
Every Android device gets latest software updates from its manufacturers at regular intervals. Same is the case with Samsung; it releases few upgrades for specific devices using which users can update their devices. Usually, the device users get notified about the updates and if not they can check the same by opening ‘Settings>About Device’.
The fact about the updates is that they contain several fixes for the minor bugs and enhancements for improving the phone’s performance. So, users need to stay updated at all the time so that they can avoid any slower performance of the device.
Reduce the Animation scale
The latest Android version enabled a feature named ‘Developer Options’ in the devices using which the users can alter the things. You cannot find these options in the device until you enable it. So, go through the ‘Settings>About Device’ and tap few times on the ‘Build Number’ until the ‘Developer Options’ is enabled. Once enabled, you can see them on your device settings.
Now scroll down the options and find ‘Window animation scale’ and ‘Transition animation scale’. By default they are marked to 1X, so now you can turn them off or reduce the point to 0.5X. Once done, you will have the better performance on the device. Additionally, you can also alter the background processes for faster performance by tapping on ‘Limit background processes’. You can revert to the old settings at any time by reversing the process.
Uninstall Pre-installed Apps and Remove App Cache
Every Android device contains few pre-installed apps which are bloatware causing performance issues. So, you need to remove them from your device by uninstalling/disabling them. Also, check the apps which you have downloaded from the play store as few among them will be unnecessary. So, if you find any useless apps them uninstall them from the device and keep the phone safe.
The cache of the apps should regularly be cleared so as to ensure the smoother performance of the phone. So, all you need to do is, open each app from the app manager and tap on ‘Clear Cache’ button so as to remove the app cache. By doing this, you can get extra storage space as well as improvement in the device functionality.
Disable Live Wallpapers and Widgets
You may be interested in using Live Wallpapers for the background of your screen. But, by doing this, the process gets over-loaded and, in turn, you will see the lag in device functionality. So, we advise you to use normal wallpapers and screensavers which also give enhancement for your display instead of Live Wallpapers.
Widgets can be useful as they ease few processes for the end users. But, the fact is that widgets use most of your processor and may cause performance issue in the device. So, we advise you not to use widgets at all so as to safeguard the device and if at all you need them then use just one to two useful widgets. By doing this, you can easily improve the functionality of the device.
Wipe Cache Partition
Apart from the cache stored in apps, the device also contains the cache which should be removed for the smoother performance. This can be done by getting your phone into recovery mode. For that, you have to turn off your phone and press volume up and power button at the same time. Now, in here use volume buttons for scrolling up and down and power button for confirming the selection. So, select and confirm ‘Wipe Cache Partition’ and after that go for ‘Reboot system Now’. That’s all, entire cache from the device will get removed, and you will be having extra storage space now.
The last thing you can do to improve the performance of the device is to perform the factory reset. You need to take back up of the data as this process will erase everything from the device. Now, you have to get your phone into the recovery mode as explained above. In here, using the volume and power buttons, select and confirm ‘wipe data/factory reset’ and ‘Yes—delete all user data’. Once the process is done, go for ‘Reboot system now’.
Also, you can do the same by tapping on ‘Settings>Backup & Reset>Factory data reset>Reset device> Delete all’. That’s all; now you will have a new device with faster performance in your hand. So, by using any of the above two methods you can perform the factory reset on your device. But the only thing to remember is, the data gets erased when performing this task and so do take the backup.
Few Additional Tips
By following few other precautions, you can gear up the device to the certain extent by avoiding the malfunctioning of the device. Always try to turn off the WiFi, Bluetooth and data connections whenever not in use. Do not try to perform multi-tasking on the phone by using many apps at a time as it may result in hanging the phone. To get longer battery life, use original battery chargers for charging the device.
