Android Phones are quite brilliant when it comes to system reliability and overall system performance/responsiveness. However, with time, just like any other operating system, even the mighty Android can slow down, and lose its agility.
The reasons can be numerous; from a cluttered storage card to an app using way too much system resources of what is available. But thankfully, there are apps out there on the Google Play Store that you can use to get rid of the bugs and fix up your Android OS to get it back to where it was initially (in terms of system performance and speed). Usually, the most well know app for a ‘quick-fix’ to your Android OS is the ‘Task Killer’, but that’s not a long-lasting solution.
In this article, we’ll have a quick run-down of the 5 best apps that can used to improve your Android phone’s performance.

The app can automatically stop alarms, widgets, background music, services, and push notifications if it detects an overload on the system resources. Our favorite part about the app is its simplicity; even newbies can find their way through the app and initiate the process to clean up their system.
