After buying a new smartphone, there will be no complaints because it is in a perfect condition and working fine. However, when the excitement of buying a smartphone eventually wears off, your phone starts acting up as it becomes very slow and unresponsive. This may be as a result of the way you use your phone. The undeniable fact is that we all want our smartphone to run like brand new even though you have used it for two years.
Here are ways to ensure that your smartphone runs like brand new.
Uninstall dormant apps
There are limitless numbers of free apps you can download in the Google or iPhone store. Since you don’t have to pay, you download both relevant and irrelevant apps on your smartphone. If you do this, then you don’t need to complain about your phone working like a snail. What you should do is to get apps you are not using in order to free up space/
Ensure you update your OS
Phone manufacturers don’t in these smartphones include updates for fun. These updates are to ensure that your phone is in sync with the latest version. So, whether you are using an Android or iPhone, you should always update the Operating System intermittently for maximum performance.
Clear your home screen
Your home screen makes it easier for you to access your apps. So, many of us prefer to have all our apps on the home screen. This can impact the way your phone functions. You should always clear your home screen or you delete app icons you don’t use regularly.
Free up some space
Your phone memory may be filled up or there may be some file residues after you uninstall an app. This will no doubt take up much-needed space. So, you should always clean your phone to free up space.
Reset your phone
The worst case scenario is for you to simply reset your phone. This is when your phone is totally unresponsive. But before you reset, transfer your pictures, files, and videos so that you don’t lose them. Most times, the reset will restore the factory setting.
