If your device is getting laggy / slow - 99% of the time its down to running out of available RAM. The other 1% is normally down to a badly coded App, hogging all your devices resources.

There's 2 ways you can go about this:

  1. Manually go into Settings/Apps/Running Apps - and then stop each App manually until you cleared enough space in the RAM.

  2. Download a decent App which does it for you. Keep a check on this though as a lot of Apps are a complete waste of time & actually take up more space in your devices RAM than what they actually clear.
    Also, any decent App will require you to go into the accessibility settings & enable it there so it can properly stop Apps running.

For that other 1%, you'll need to go into the developer options settings and tick the box next to "Strict mode enabled".This will warn you of any apps that are hogging your devices resources - though use with care (and normally with your device hooked up to a pc & with software on your pc running)

For those feeling ultra brave, whilst you're still in developer options, you can also have a play with the Apps section which is located right at the bottom.
I advise you do some research first before playing with those settings, yet doing it right can bring some pretty amazing results. Again though, if you don't know what you're doing, DON'T mess about with them!!!

If your phone is not rooted you should always be updated and clean up your memory and use simple background and remove qidgets and disable background sync and have one user's account and clear apps' cache.If your phone is rooted use custom ROMs and uninstall pre_installed apps.

  1. Recognize the issue

The principal thing to do is discover what is creating the issue: an application, numerous applications, the framework itself?

  1. Free up some space

Each one of those photographs you've taken and those applications you've introduced can incur significant damage on your telephone. It needs a touch of breathing space to run easily and if it's running low on space, it can begin to back off.

  1. Cripple superfluous livelinesss and additional items

Contingent upon the launcher you are utilizing, you may find that there are different movements and embellishments set up. These may look incredible, yet they can likewise back things off.

  1. Shut down applications and free up RAM

Multi-entrusting a few applications makes it simple to switch between various instruments, yet there can likewise be an effect on execution. You can rapidly shut down any applications you are no longer utilising by ringing the running applications list – press and hold the home key and after that swipe away any applications you need to exit.
