The drop in the performance of your phone can be easily solved or avoidable knowing what causes it.
This is perhaps one of the most frequent problems in mobile users, an issue that becomes more noticeable in mid-range / low-end equipment or when we already have a few years with our equipment.
There are many reasons that cause our team to go from being an airplane to a very slow version of a car , speaking of speed, all these reasons well identified and in many cases, with a partial or total solution.
These are some of the reasons why our team may present performance problems and some tips to solve or prevent them.
Although it seems that we do not have apps running on our computer, many apps are constantly running in the background and this is one of the main reasons why our team slows down, since these applications require resources and many of these apps are surely from those that we download and never use again. These applications, whether we use them or not, continuously connect to the network, update information or require some type of resource, which affects the performance of our equipment.
How to fix / prevent it: The easiest way to avoid this problem is not to accumulate apps left and right, evaluate which apps we really use and get rid of those that are not useful to us, anyway it is good to know that even if we delete it, we can recover that app from the AppStore or Google Play in case we need it again in the future.
With this we will allow our team to keep running only those apps that we require. Using Files go (Android) we can see the apps that we do not use or from Settings in iOS we can see the apps installed and when was the last time we used them.
Similarly, on Android, we can stop running apps by enabling Developer Options by tapping the build number in Settings> About phone seven times . From there, we open Developer Options and Running Services.
Little memory space
This is another of the most common causes why our phone can be so slow, since the writing speed in the storage memory tends to decrease as the disk space is filled , which is occupied by apps, thousands photos or videos and application cache files. All this influences the performance of our team.
Solution : To avoid this problem, we can resort to online storage applications (Cloud) such as iCloud , Google Drive or Dropbox , which will allow us to free up space on our phone, in addition to being able to have a backup in case of failure.
Mobile batteries are the main cause of users' headaches , since they tend to degrade after 2 or 3 years, which causes their capacity to decrease, which we notice immediately in the time that we can have our power on. computer without connecting it.
This not only affects the time of use, it also causes a voltage drop, which usually causes our equipment to heat up and therefore affects the overall performance of our equipment.
Solution : Perhaps the most complicated part to avoid, but when we notice a notable decrease in the battery, it is advisable to take the equipment to a service center in order to evaluate the real capacity of the battery and make the replacement to give it more time to life to our team
The internal memory of our computers also tend to age over time, since they base their life on write cycles, which are executed every time we use any app on our phone.
Solution : Although this problem has no solution, we will begin to notice it in computers with many years of use, since the life of flash memory and RAM have an average life of between 5 and 10 years.
