How to boost your android phone using android assistant

Updated on April 21, 2012

Android phones are becoming more and more popular day by day. Their price also has come down so that you can now own an android phone at the price of a Java phone. As android has proven as the future technology in smart phones, it is important to know about how to boost or speed up an android phone. Here are some tips

Kill unnecessary processes running in background

As android is as good as an old computer operating system, it works on a lot of processes. Whenever you load an application in your android phone, it gets loaded to the RAM. But even if you exit from the application and started using another application, android OS will keep that application in memory, unless there is enough memory for the second application to work. The problem with this is that after you opening and closing several applications, the available free memory will decrease considerably. Even though android OS offers a low memory auto kill feature it is not sufficient in low RAM smart phones. So it is always better to kill unnecessary processes running in background using a task killer. Advanced task killer is a good application for this purpose. Use advanced task killer widget. This is a very good tool I found very useful in daily use of phone. After installing advanced task killer, select advanced task killer widget from the list of widgets. The peculiarity of this widget is that it will kill all the running applications when you touch on the widget. This widget is very small and will not take much screen space. So before locking the screen and putting the phone into the pocket, just touh in this widget once. Why you need to decrease battery life by allowing unwanted applications in your phone?.

Use applications like android assistant

There is a lot of applications allowing you to boost your android phone. In android assistant there is an option to boost your android phone. It is not given that how they are boosting the phone. But you can feel considerable speed improvement after boosting your phone using android assistant as it makes a lot of RAM available. Also this application allows you to clear cache of other different applications. This will allow you to free up a lot of memory as we usually do not clear cache as we need to do it separately for each installed application. Also this application allows you to control the applications that are loaded at startup. But for doing that you have to allow this application to run in startup

Uninstall unwanted applications

The more the number of applications that you install in your smart phone, the more will be the memory drawn as cache memory. Also these applications will get loaded automatically depending on their development conditions. For example some applications will have the option to read the phone state. Such applications will get loaded into the RAM when the phone state changes. So if you are feeling that an application is not very necessary currently, backup the application and uninstall it.

      @Rob - There are some low memory phones which can keep only one or two apps in RAM. For such phones, if we clear RAM, loading new app will be faster. But for mobiles with more than 1GB RAM you are correct. It can keep all frequently used apps in RAM and load immediately

      Uhhhh one of androids strong points is that it does keep applications in ram because the data rates for ram are about 500x faster. Android will kick things out of memory when necessary. Task killers have been rendering this useless since they were brought over in concept from desktop os's

      One of the source of problems on an Android device is the push ads used by various free apps.
