At the final end, for users, it just seems like simple texting, making calls, using apps and all your daily activities via your best friend, smartphone. But below the surface, it's a complex OS system, which plays the main role in your Android phone activity. The constant use of your smartphone can drain and make it slower to perform. Here let's look at the top 10 ways to boost your phone performance and know the trick (which you may never know) to make most out of it.

    Top 5 Android Tips and Tricks to boost mobile performance

    1. Uninstall unused apps, free the memory

    This is the basic funda for every smartphone user. Memory full? Uninstall unused apps. It will automatically boost your phone performance. Unfortunately, some Android models come with the pre-installed apps which are of sometimes are of no use for you and you can't even uninstall them. But you can at least choose Disable them to use.

    2. Customize your message notifications

    You can even customise your message notifications in Android 11 to make certain contacts fall under the important or priority category and keep conversations together, simply by enabling them in Settings. You can have messages appear in the form of bubbles on top of any other active programmes.

    3. You can Install apps outside the Play store

    Unlike iOS, you can download apps from other sources or web instead of company's own app store or Google's Play store. If you don't find something there, you have the option to go to other Play Store or online websites too. However, if you do that, then you need to ensure that you are downloading from a reliable source. It is quite dangerous to download from other sources

    4. Don't underestimate Antivirus

    Here, iOS wins in terms of security, as Android is far more open than iOS. Having an antivirus is extremely important to avoid any malware attack. Though Google has its own built-in security, having anti-virus can secure your smartphone from multiple attacks and viruses. Also, don't ignore updates - do it frequently as it refreshes your security settings and brings new features. Also, the new features in updates eliminates the risk of viruses.

    5. Upgrade your Storage

    One of the biggest advantages of Android over iPhones is that some versions allow you to expand your storage capacity using a microSD card. This not only expands the amount of media and apps you can store on your phone, but it also allows you to transmit vast amounts of data between your phone and other devices.

    Your smartphone takes care of you! Try Digital Wellbeing Feature

    Staying up all night while messaging and scrolling on your phone isn't good. Here, in Android 11, the Digital Wellbeing feature is added to take care of you. It not only silences your phone at a predetermined time, but it also turns the screen black and white in case you need to glance at it after hours. If you need extra time before sleeping, you can even select the Pause option in the dropdown menu. It may not do anything or the mobile, but it will definitely do you a ton of good.
