Is your Android phone working slow? Or is it old enough to change, but you are not ready to let it go yet? Whatever the reason to retain your old Android phone, there is no need to put up with a slow phone. So, in case you want to know about how to make Android phone faster, then here is what you need to do. What you can do is to give it a makeover. We are stepping into the new year and therefore, you must get it up to speed. It's time to organise your home screen, free up the unwanted apps, and customizations that you have never done since you bought it! And if your device is having Android 12, then there are some aesthetic functions available too. Here, we have listed tips and tricks to make your old Android phone run faster and perhaps even make it feel like a new one.

Delete unwanted apps

Go through your apps list and check all the apps, especially those which haven't been used for long. Without thinking much about it, just delete or uninstall them! These apps not only take a huge amount of space in your phone and may be eating up a lot of other resources as they may be updating themselves in the background.

Free up the memory

Now it's time to go through files, photos, and videos that are being accumulated after being downloaded from WhatsApp, Facebook, or the internet for a long time that hold no value for you. The simplest way is to check the Files app in your phone storage. You have another option too, if you don't want to delete some of your memorable videos or photos- just upload them on Google Drive and access them whenever you want in the future.

De-clutter your home screen

Once you unlock your device, the home screen is the first place where you look. The messy, cluttered apps can make it look unappealing. Start by looking through the options for your phone's home screen. Long-press on a blank area of your home screen to access the home screen options, where you can change several settings. For example, the size of the app grid. It may appear to be a small adjustment, but one extra column can make a significant difference. This is also where you'll find options for things like viewing notifications by swiping down on the home screen rather than sliding from the top of the screen.

Few tweaks in the Device Settings

To customise your Android phone, make several changes in the settings. Such as enabling dark mode if you haven't used it yet, which saves your phone's energy as well as adds a new dark look to your phone. You can make several more changes such as a new wallpaper for the new beginning of the year.

Time to clean your phone!

We are talking about literally cleaning your phone! When you are cleaning the device in terms of software then why not its screen! Remove the cover (if your phone has it) and replace it with a new one. Or else, use a soft, a little wet, cloth to wipe the screen of your phone without damaging it. A few small changes can make it feel like a whole new experience while using.
