One way to try enhance the speed of your phone is to do a soft reset. Do this by:

  • Safely removing the SD card.
  • Then turn your phone off safely. Remove the battery of the phone then after 30 seconds, reinsert the battery and then start the phone up normally again.
  • After this, you should then stop the apps running in the background.

Another way to try and enhance the speed of your Galaxy S2 phone is to do a factory reset. Do this after backing up your data as it will all be deleted. The reason for doing this is to remove all corrupted system files in your phone. These may be causing the lacklustre performance and may also be putting a strain on your battery.

Also you may want to wipe the cache partition if the factory reset doesn’t do it for you. This will delete all of the temporary app files as they may be the ones that are causing the lag on your phone.

What you should do in this case is simply uninstall the apps you don’t need and really only have the apps that are essential on your phone. You should experience better performance after this.
