If you notice that your Android mobile is not being as fast as it was before and now everything costs a little more, you can try certain solutions that we are going to tell you about and thus get everything to flow as before.
It is logical and normal that over time Android phones are a little lazier, but it is also true that we can minimize this damage with certain solutions to apply.
But do not think that we are going to carry out arduous internal configuration tasks or the like, since these solutions that you are going to read are very simple to perform and common sense many of them.
By executing tasks, which are not going to be complicated or take a long time, you will be able to get your Android be fluent again and that you no longer notice that sensation of slowdown that bothers you so much.
Let’s stop preamble and see what we can do to make it faster.

Clean start menu
If we have many icons on the home screen of our Android smartphone, it can be a good solution to eliminate those that are not essential, since this can be a cause of slowdown.
But not only if we have many icons of the apps, but also the widgets can affect this. All this, together with a terminal that is already a few years old, can make the experience slow down, even the transitions themselves are slower.
By the way we have deleted the icons of the screen from the beginning, we can always take advantage of uninstall apps that we carry a lot without using or of those that we use at most once a year.
For example, it may be that we like carols a lot at Christmas, but it would not be logical to have the app installed all year round, especially if we are only going to use it at a specific time.
That’s why it’s convenient to delete all those apps that do not serve usbecause not only are we going to get more storage on the mobile, something that also helps speed, but the device will have to deal with less data (maybe some of those applications were synchronized with the cloud), which should cause everything goes better.
Get a new pitcher
There are times when you become more fluent again if you change the launcher with which the device works.
In the Google Play Store we have many so we can keep trying until we get the one that best suits our needs and with which we achieve greater speed in the transitions and the general operation of the terminal.
Social network applications, weather, news and all that type of apps are automatically synchronized to keep updating.
Although the normal thing is that it is every 15 minutes when they connect to collect information, when they have many of this type, they may be affecting the proper functioning and fluidity of the device.
It would be best extend sync schedules or directly deactivate them so that they continue to occupy our terminal with such continuous synchronization.
Search for updates
We must always have upgraded devicesince in many of the manufacturers’ updates improved memory saving systems are sent, improvements in the management of any apps or greater fluidity in the system itself. That is why it is important to update Android.
But not only do we have to update Android, but we also have to be up to date with the applications, since it is normal for new versions to improve the stability and fluidity of the previous ones.
We can enter the Google Play Store, click on the photo of our profile, then we go to Settings, Network Preferences and then give Automatically update apps. When entering we choose if we want it to be updated with any network (mobile and Wi-Fi), Wi-Fi only either Do not update apps automatically (this is not recommended).
If you are one of those who use Google Chrome for everything, we have to tell you that you should change it, since uses a lot of system resources and that can be a reason for everything to go much less smoothly.
You have other very interesting options like Brave or DuckDuckGo, both based on Chromium like Chrome, but consuming much less of our terminal when they are running.
Something that can solve your fluidity problems and that is extremely simple is to restart the telephone regularly.
We are not saying to do it every day either, but from time to time, so that the residual memory is released and everything starts from scratch. You will surely notice a good difference if you do.
speed up animations
As you well know, Android is full of animations or transitions that give the system that characteristic fluid look.
Well, we can try to improve the speed of these and thus compensate for the slowness, by doing the following:
- Let’s go to Settings from Android.
- After that we go to developer options (which is at the bottom) or Settings > System > Advanced > Developer options.
- Let’s go down and set the Window Animation Scale, Transition Animation Scale, and Animator Duration Scale at .5x. This cuts the duration of the animations in half (we can disable them entirely if we wish).
Flash a custom kernel
The kernel is in charge of manage every interaction between the software and the hardware of our phone.
Yes we flash a custom one It will allow us to modify the operation of the hardware, which can cause a greater general speed of the entire system.
Some even offer settings for games, which is the maximum power in said task, returning to normal when we do not play.
a new ROM
It may be that one custom ROM for our device achieve greater fluidity thanks to the implementation of a lighter interface, less demanding and with more sense for our phone.
It can be a brilliant idea in some cases, so it could be a way to solve the lack of proper functioning that we suffer in the smartphone. LineageOS is one of those ROMs that is usually best adapted to mobiles.
With everything we have told we are going to get your Android terminal back to the fluidity it had before. All these solutions are simple and we will not have to carry out any complicated or messy task.
