The most common problem smartphone users face are space issues, poor battery life, connectivity issues, etc. But how many of us really know how to fix these problems? You can actually do it yourself with some of these quick fixes listed below…
When you keep getting the insufficient storage error, uninstall all the unwanted apps on your smartphone. This will free up some space and keep your device running smoothly. Next, move some of the apps, pictures and large files from your device to the SD card and you’ll be amazed to see the amount of space you’re left with. Also, make it a habit to clear the cache (phone’s temporary storage area). Every app on your phone occupies space with cached files and clearing these can create enough space. To clear the cache:
- Go to your settings
- Select Apps
- Choose an app which has cache (Facebook, Twitter, Game, Chrome)
- Hit clear cache
Smartphones usually slow down when the internal storage is almost full. So again, delete unwanted apps, move your photos and videos to the drop box or SD card and avoid using live wallpapers. Do not forget to close all the open apps that cause your phone to freeze or you could try restarting your phone. We recommend the Clean Master app, which is available for free on the Google Play Store. It cleans up your device by removing all the junk and improves your phone’s performance.
Phone Slows Down
When your phone starts to slow down and apps take longer to open and run, delete a few apps, clear the cached data and check your SD card if you’re using one. An SD card can actually mess up your smartphones speed, so change it if you must. Check for updates on your phone and if that doesn’t work, do a factory reset. Factory resetting clears everything on the phone and makes it look like what it was when you first unboxed it.
Battery Drains Quickly
The simplest way to prolong your smartphones battery is to change your brightness settings. Avoid the auto brightness setting and keep it as dim as possible because it consumes battery. Remove unnecessary widgets from the home screen, like social networking and news apps that stay on your home screen for real-time updates. Turn off your notifications and especially, GPS when not in use. You can also let the battery drain completely once in three months. This helps maintain its charge capacity.
This is a common problem with most handsets. The next time you face problems connecting to Bluetooth, WiFi or the cellular network, turn on the airplane mode for a few seconds and turn it off. If that doesn’t work, try switching off your cellular network and switching it on again.
