5 Tips To Boost Your Android Phone/Tablet Performance By 5 Times!

Performance in Android devices matters for everything. From playing 3D games to streaming HD videos in browser, performance plays a major role. Everyone likes to have a butter smooth interface on their Android devices. No one wants to face even a small lag when playing games and browsing content. But unfortunately, not everyone of us own a phone like Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 that has loads of Ram installed in them and are equipped with monster processors.

As a matter of fact, everything can be modified in Android. So for Android users, who own a budget phone and want to avoid frequent lags from their devices, I've come up with 5 excellent tips that can boost their android device's performance by 5 times! The tips I've mentioned below, when applied individually cannot show much improvement. So, try to implement all of them to see a dramatic change in performance.


Disabling system animations is one of the classic method used by many of the Android users to improve their device's performance. Disabling animations not only improves performance but also boosts your battery life. This is because, animations in android consume considerable amount of Ram and as a result a very less amount of Ram will be left off for third party applications you install from play store.

To Disable Android Animations, you must unlock developer options in your settings menu. You can do this simply by tapping Build number tab in About -> Software Information for 10-15 times. Now enter Developer Options and disable animations just be selecting "Animation off" for Window animation scale, Transition animation scale and Animator duration scale.


This may sound surprising but the beautiful widgets you see on your home screen pages are the real intruders that steal a lot of Ram memory. They are also the reason for the faster draining of battery. When it comes to customization widgets are real good, but if you are more concerned about the performance, try disabling them.


Yeah, I know, live wallpapers makes our Android devices look cool. But have you ever tried multi tasking while using a live wallpaper? I bet your device lags. So try avoiding them too. Also, the size of the wallpapers you use should not exceed 1MB. The smaller the size of the wallpaper, the faster the device performs.


Though I do not recommend using Anti Virus Applications and Ram boosters, there are some really working Ram boosters out there that clear off your Ram memory and improves your android device's performance dramatically. One of them is Advanced Task Killer. This application is light yet the most powerful ram booster and its worth giving a try.


Finally the most advanced and powerful method that can take your device's performance to peak levels. Overclocking is a process of making android device's cpu run beyond its normal capacity. As this process deals with the hardware of your Android device, it requires root. If you are not sure what rooting is, refer this guide. Once your android device is rooted, install SetCpu App and overclock your device. Bear in mind that, too much overclocking of a device leads to heating problems and ultimately bricks your device. Do at your own risk!
