We may not realize it, but there are several processes going on all the time in an Android smartphone. Your smartphone is connected to wireless broadband or a cellular network at all times, allowing you to communicate with others. Then there’s constant allocation and reallocation of available memory to run apps, not to mention the number of apps running in the background (via Fossbytes).

Moreover, the software constantly interacts with the hardware components like screen, battery, camera, signal receivers, USB port, etc. What if one of these systems is not performing as expected or lacks the capacity to handle current demand? Well, you are facing bugs, glitches, and performance issues. Another inevitable factor at play is aging; as hardware components age, their efficiency decreases, as does their ability to handle new applications.

Based on the factors explained, there are a few common issues that usually slow down Android devices. For starters, your phone may be low on storage or you may have too many apps in memory to accommodate more. An unstable internet connection also hurts your phone’s performance, as does poor battery health or the presence of malware. Here are some things you can do to fix your smartphone.
