How to Optimize Your Android smartphone

The installation and use of multiple applications on an Android smartphone can slow its operation dramatically. However, you can avoid this and make optimal use of your Android mobile. In this article, we'll show you some useful tips and apps that can help you.

The Android application manager

Android's built-in Application Manager allows you to quickly view all the applications installed on the smartphone and those running in the background. To access the Application Manager, select Settings > scroll to the Device >
Application Manager.

The Application Manager allows you to perform several actions, such as:

  • Identify resource-intensive applications.
  • Force quit apps.
  • Move apps to your memory card.
