If your phone - no matter what phone you have - is feeling bogged down like Artax in the swamp in The Neverending Story (yeah, some of you know what I'm talking about) then here's a quick couple of tips to speed up your laggy Android:

  • One word: Greenify (check the Play Store)

  • Check your SD card capacity. You may think you can go right up to the limit with no problems, but you'd be mistaken. Clearing your temporary files, download folder and other miscellaneous data not only frees up more space (for more junk!) but it can also speed up your device a bit too.

  • Figure out which apps are running at startup. You can do this with various apps like Advanced Task Manager or Wakelock Detector

  • Throw down some reset action. My favorite way to clear up bugs, lag and other issues is with regular resets. Back up your important apps and data and restore your phone to factory defaults, then load all your stuff back on a clean slate and begin the process again.

Clean Master app is also worth a try. It's a good app to clean junk files and useless data from Android.

If your phone is starved for internal storage and you can't spare any of your hard-earned apps, you can try moving them to your SD card instead (at least, if you're running Android 2.3 or earlier). This will free up that internal space and speed up your phone, but keep all your apps close at hand.

Hi! I have a couple of questions about some apps. I found these apps on my Note 4: Kaiti, Miao and ShaoNj. I don't know what these apps are for and can I delete them?
