Feeling your Android Smartphone is slow? Here are some reasons

When an Android  phone is new it works smart and efficiently,depending on the OS and the RAM of the phone, and the number of files and data you have on it. But after sometime using the phone, despite the RAM and its outstanding features it seems to be slow . It is believed that this fact is true for mostly Android devices, but the truth is the problem of a phone going slow overtime is not unique to only Android devices, but also on other smartphones like Apple devices such as iPad 2, iPhones generally running on the lastest same iOS platform. 



There are so many reasons why a phone with good specs and outstanding capabilities could go slow as time goes by, of which some knows the reasons, and most people do not know, as such believing that the phone no longer works well,or maybe is infected with virus making them lose interest in the phone.
Not every phone that works slowly after some time is caused by virus, some of the reasons include what you have on the phone, and sometimes how your smartphone is used.
That is why i ll be sharing with you few reasons why your smartphone is running slowly when you use it nowadays. Below are some of the reasons

Much Heavy apps and OS updates 

 Most smartphones and Android devices are doing very well in software updates unlike what it used to be few years ago but still OS are always released for updates in different smartphones and to be honest not all OS you update works better than the latter. Devices receiving OS updates sometimes is the problem why your phone seems to be running slow,because most of them are sometimes not effective thus slowing it down. Sometimes manufacturers or carriers may have included some unwanted applications with a specific update, which slows down the device as they run in background.
For Android updates, apps running on the phone are usually newer. Newer apps or updates get a lot heavier as time goes by, as such makes your android device work slower.
Developers introduces enhanced and faster hardware, smartphone games, and applications as time passes by, which performs excellently well on newer Android devices and worsen the Android devices which have been made before the new ones.
This is experienced on so many platforms including PCs too where new applications and games on the desktop demand more RAM, space, and bandwidth. There are not solutions really to fix this issue, but should in case you experience an OS slowing down your device, installing a customized ROM would be a good idea which comes without not to needed apps on many devices. More so if you experience your apps are kind of slow then it would be better to find applications that are not too heavy and works perfectly well for your Android device.

Running Apps  in  Background

The more you use your phone, the more you get used to it and install various apps you are fond of, which works pretty well on your phone.So many of those apps run in the background, using a lot of CPU resources, consuming the memory of the device, making it slow and also running down the battery life.
Installing so many of this applications that run in the background extremely slows a device, even some apps after use and closing them still tend to run in background slowing your device. To fix this issue make sure you uninstall any heavy apps in use, or better still go their permissions settings, and turn off the run in background button, as most of this app usually have permission settings. But still it is better not to install any heavy unused app because even if you stop them from running underground the space they still take can slow down your device.

System file that is filing up or accumulating

As solid states types of drives fill up,your mobile device slows down. File system is a data structure used by an OS to keep track of files on a disk. The file system is mainly used by the OS and when its about to fill up you can just wonder how slow your device could get. This simply makes apps slow down on your device, even makes your android device work slow too. The storage screen which is within the settings app on your phone shows how full the storage of a device gets, and shows what exactly consumes the space. Cache clearing is important as it gives the disk some vital extra space for your file system to do well,but if left uncleared and unchecked,could also occupy some storage space on your device.
To fix this, applications not in use should be uninstalled while files not needed should be deleted with immediate effect. Remember that Cache clearing frees a lot of space, also a factory reset can be done so that the applications that will be left will be the ones initially installed on the phone as when new. Make sure to backup all you files and data,and every sort of information you do not want losing, before doing a factory rest.

Not very good TRIM support

If a good TRIM support is not available for a device, it could slow down a device as time goes by. For some who do not know what a TRIM is, TRIM is a command which allows an OS to inform a solid state drive SSD, which data are in use, are no longer needed,and can be wiped internally. Though this issue can only be fixed by an update on your Android device. I could remember sometimes ago when Nexus 7 tablet had this issue and was just too slow because  it lacks a better TRIM support. Nexus 7 was later fixed by an update of Android 4.3. So the new Nexus made, came with a good TRIM support since it had Android 4.3 OS already running on it.
