Tips on how to make the most out of your Android system while using DataScope

The habitual use of mobile devices, the installation and uninstallation of new applications and the different tasks to which the equipment is subjected, can cause the operating system to start running with less speed.

Among the most frequent inconveniences is usually the slow system process and this afflicts users of Android smartphones and tablets. The most frequent cause is that the device's memory completed its ability to store files, which is enough to notice that the computer no longer reaches optimal performance.

To solve this problem, it is necessary to perform maintenance often. Here are some tips to solve these small obstacles, which can really make a difference in the performance of your app:

Clearing the cache

Each time we use our Android device, in the same way that usually occurs with the PC, applications usually store information, in order to offer us more efficient navigation. However, this generates the multiplication of temporary files, which can often make our device slower.

One of the most recommended tips is to clear the app cache from time to time, which will allow the system to be cleaned and make it work better.

Go to "Settings" and then click on the "Applications" section. You will see that within each of the applications there is the option “Clear cache”, a button that we must press to eliminate the application cache.

Be careful when doing this step, since deleting the cache deletes all temporary files. We recommend that you synchronize all pending responses well before you do it so you won’t lose your data.

Remove unused apps

It is usual to download applications to our device and the vast majority of these tools, after testing them, are not used. Having them there, taking up valuable space, causes the system to slow down. Therefore, one of the best options is to eliminate all those applications that are no longer in use.

Clear your memory RAM

While it is true that storage space and RAM are not the same thing, it is also true that deleting applications frequently generates unnecessary files, which remains installed on the computer.

That is why when uninstalling applications, we must also remember to delete the files stored in the phone memory. For that, we must perform the same steps mentioned in the uninstallation of apps, but before pressing the "Uninstall" button, we must press the "Force Stop" button, uncheck the "Show notifications" item, then the "Delete data”, and finally“ Uninstall ”, in that order. 

That way we ensure that nothing useless is left in the device taking up space and using resources.

File Cleaning Applications

It is also a very good idea, after removing apps, to use some file cleaning tool such as the Clean Master, which will help us deepen this procedure, also eliminating unnecessary caches.

In the case that we want to check in the first instance the memory available on our device, we must access “Settings”, then “Storage”.

Remove apps that run in the background

When we frequently use our Android device, surely during the day we open and close several applications several times. But, although we believe that they are without execution and therefore are not in operation, a large part of them remain executed in the background and make the phone or tablet slow down.

For this reason, it is important to check from time to time what is happening with these applications. Go to “Settings”, then to the “Applications” section and there to the “In Execution” tab, where the list of apps that are in operation will be displayed, both in the foreground and in the background.

From here, we can eliminate those that we are not using, which will allow us to achieve better device performance.
