Shut Down Apps
As we use our phones throughout the day, we can leave many apps open in the background as we are multitasking. But this can quickly begin to bog down the phone’s limited processing power. Get in the habit of checking for apps that you are no longer using and shutting them down and your phone will run much faster!
Delete Emails and Texts
Keeping too many emails and texts saved to your phone can really slow it down, so go through and delete any unneeded messages. If there are some that you really need, save them to your phone’s mass memory or download them to your computer.
Remove Unneeded Apps
Speed up your phone by removing any unneeded apps, such as ones that came pre-installed on your phone that you never used or ones that you just don’t use anymore. This can also free up precious space that’s cluttering up your memory.
Animated Wallpaper and Screensaver
