Fast smartphone is the thing which everyone wants, but slowly-slowly people’s smartphone start getting slower. And it feels really bad when we see that our smartphone is getting slow, and not just that if the phone is slow than running apps and games get also slow, and getting phone hanged while playing games makes really angry everyone, so in this article I’ll tell you how to make smartphone faster easily and also free of cost.

Phone Memory

If your phone has two types of phone memories, like what now generally smartphones have than always try to keep at least 50% of storage free. The reason behind this, is when you try to use any app or game, some of them use C drive’s memory to run and if there is not much than they refer from there to another drive, and because of this your phone can slow down.

Background apps

Background apps are one of the mostly victim for slower smartphones (and even computers). If your phone is running many apps in background than your phone will keep processing for them so when you open another, or try to use your phone than your phone will surely get slower. So, don’t install so many apps which run in background.


Don’t keep lots of widgets on your Homescreen as they also slow down your smartphone. Also I highly recommend that if you need more speed than don’t use big clock widgets or any clock widgets. And even using Stopwatch type widgets slow down smartphones.


If you ever saw any software (firmware) update than don’t forgot to update your phone, as that will increase your phone’s performance. Many of updates also include new features so updating your phone has no problems, however if you don’t know how to update your phone than you can read so many articles available online.


Having more Homescreen on your smartphone will also lower your phone’s speed. As if you are following tips from this article than you surely removed more and more widgets from your Homescreens so I don’t think you will now more need of more Homescreens, and that is also recommended to keep low Homescreens for better speed, however some phones didn’t allow to remove Homescreens than on them you can remove widgets, and keep their nothing that will also increase your phones speed.

Auto-start apps

Never allow apps to get start when your phone starts, as that slows your phone’s start up features. Also, that will run as a background app on your phone, and if that is app like WhatsApp than your phone may not slow down as that is made to start with phone. Also, I recommend that you should allow Antivirus on your phone to start with your phone for security.
