It is so hard to imagine a life that does not in lude a smartphone. Even the thought of it gives me goosebumps. Smartphones have made lives of individuals so easy that one can convert it into a TV as well. For me, I can choose from Paramount Network on Spectrum and watch a show or movie while I am traveling. Talking about smartphones, the most heated debates arise when iOS vs. Android OS become a part of the discussion.
Being an Android fan, in today’s blog, I introduce you to ways in which you can optimize your phone.
Update Your OS
Many people ignore this fact but updating your OS on a regular basis is very important. Because the new OS comes with the latest features and introduces some new updates. If you do not update your OS and keep operating on the old one, the chances that your phone will slow down are high. Because the new OS will not be compatible with the new one then. And you won’t be able to make use of the new features and updates as well. Therefore, to optimize your Android OS, it is essential to update it too.
Root Your Phone
You might not realize it, but rooting your phone gives you more control over your phone. When you root your android system, you replace the existing OS with the new one. This is the benefit of rooting your mobile. You can get access to the new OS without having to go through your carrier. Because if you have an older device, you may not be able to update to your latest OS.
However, rooting saves you from this worry. Some of the other benefits of rooting your phone include accessing features that your carrier has blocked, the ability to remove in-built apps and much more. This can be a bit tricky though. But it is worth a try.
Kill the Bloatware
The in-built device that comes as a part of your mobile device or sometimes added by your carries adds to the bloatware. And you can’t do much about it without rooting your phone. However, if you do not want to root your phone (which can be tricky). There are many other ways to do so. For example, you can try uninstalling the updates to these in-built apps. This will save you the storage space. Or you can choose to disable the updates for these in-built apps. Doing so will save you a lot of space.
To optimize your phone and for it to function better and with speed, you will have to make space in it. This will not be an easy task but not that tedious either. You will have to know the right way to do so. Because just like your laptop or desktop, your smartphone becomes sluggish as well when it is over-packed with apps. Not only does it make your phone slow but it also becomes hard for you to search for stuff when there is so much in your phone. It is easy to clear space on Android phones as compared to iPhones.
However, you should always back up your data whenever you decide to clear space.
It often gets frustrating when autocorrect and typos slow down your phone. To save yourself the embarrassment, frustration as well as the time, customize your autocorrect dictionary. You can do so by managing your settings. You can even try the third-party keyboard to see if its functionality works better for you.
Extend Battery Life
If you want to make the most out of your phone’s productivity, you should extend the battery life. There are two ways to go about it. You can carry a portable charger with you at all times. So that you do not have to go through the frustration of a dying battery. Or you can opt for ways to make your battery last longer. Some of the ways by which you can save battery life include turning off the Wi-Fi, killing the apps running in the background and switching to power-save mode.
Use Android Launcher
The Android interface is easy to use. However, at times the manufacturer mucks it. You will notice that the Android system on Samsung is a bit different from that of an HTC. However, there are ways by which you can deal with this. If you search for ways online, you will find a solution to this problem as well.
As long as the carrier is concerned, you can choose from the best ones offered in States. You can even choose to opt for Spectrum internet offers for your Wi-Fi needs when you are home.
