Give your device a quick boost by running a quick optimization check. This feature is designed to identify apps that use excessive battery power, clear away redundant items from your device’s memory, delete unnecessary files and close apps that are running in the background. You can run a one-off cycle manually or set your device to automatically optimise once a day.

To perform it manually

  • To optimise your device manually go to “Settings”, then tap “Device Care”.
  • Wait for a moment while Device care runs a diagnosis on your device. Your device will be given a score out of 100. The higher the score, the better optimised your device is.
  • Tap “Optimise now.”

Your device will now complete an optimisation run. Once complete, the results will be displayed on-screen. Tap “Done” to finish.

  • To set your device to optimise automatically:
  • Go to “Settings”, then tap “Device Care”.
  • Tap the More options icon (three dots).
  • Tap “Advanced”.
  • Tap the switch to activate “Auto optimisation”.

2. Optimize the battery

There are several ways to check and optimise your phone’s battery. First, you can check your battery usage to see which apps have been using your battery power recently, and you can also set a different power mode on your device to help preserve your battery throughout the day.

  • Go to “Settings”, then tap “Device care”.
  • Tap “Battery”.
  • Tap “Battery usage” to check which apps have been using the battery on your device.
  • Return to the Battery menu, then tap “Power mode”, then select from available options.

There are several power modes available on your device. Each mode balances the performance of your phone with the battery used, with higher performance modes using more battery than lower performance modes. 

  • High performance: Higher system speed, maximum screen brightness and resolution uses more battery.
  • Optimised: Get the recommended balance of performance and battery life.
  • Medium power saving: Extend battery life by limiting some functions.
  • Maximum power saving: Save as much battery as possible.

Alternatively, you can tap the switch to activate Adaptive power saving mode to set the power mode based on your usage patterns.

Return to the Battery menu, then tap “App power management”, then select your preferred settings.

  • Adaptive battery: If activated, battery usage will be limited for apps that you don’t use often.
  • Put unused apps to sleep: If activated, apps will be put to sleep when they haven’t been used for a while.
  • Sleeping apps: These apps won’t run in the background. They may not receive updates or send notifications.
  • Deep sleeping apps: These apps will never run in the background. They’ll only work when you open them.
  • Apps that won’t be put to sleep: These apps will not be put to sleep.

3. Opt to change the performance mode

In Samsung Galaxy you will find that there are multiple performance modes to adapt according to your needs. Like you can choose to get more battery life, or better media apps to run fast or speed of your cell phone. To increase speed you will have to go to Settings > Device Maintenance > Performance Mode and select “Game”. This will increase the speed of the phone. There is another option called the “High performance” option. All that does is improve the overall display experience, not exactly the speed. It will increase resolution, brightness and other factors that make for a better experience. Note that when you take your phone’s performance mode to ‘game’ then it will consume more battery and may over heat too.

4. Lower the resolution

Simply go to Settings > Display > Screen Resolution and drag the slider to the left. Aside from WQHD+ (2960×1440), there are options for FHD+ (2220×1080) and HD+ (1480×720). The lower the resolution, the less your CPU and GPU have to work to portray an image on your display and yur device will speed up.

  • Tap “Storage”
  • Tap a category that you would like to remove, for example “Documents” or “Images”.
  • Select the items you would like to delete.

Your device saves data from commonly used apps and websites and clearing the cache memory every now and then actually help making things faster on your phone like when you work in PC. After a while, cache data can bulk up, become corrupted and run into other unexpected issues. This may cause your phone to act up. So clear it every month or so, and you should be fine.

Go to Settings > Device maintenance and hit “Optimize now”. This will clear the cache memory, as well as a few other things. Note that the device will feel a little slower right after clearing the cache. This is because it is re-downloading all the information that keeps your device snappy.

Your Samsung Galaxy mobile is always doing stuff in the background, and when these processes pile up they can really slow your device down. You can limit them to keep performance at its maximum. Simply head over to “Developer options” and look for “Background process limit”. Select it and limit background processes as much as you feel comfortable. After this, you can restart the device and enjoy the improved speeds. Note that don’t set it too low as it might prevent some of your most commonly used apps from grabbing updates in the background.

10. Reduce animation scales

Animations are nice, but they do make things slower and use up processing power. This means turning them off is for the best when aiming for a faster device. Simply go to “Developer options” and look through the animation settings. Set them all to 0.5x for optimal performance.

11. Don’t keep activities

Android’s multi-tasking prowess is impressive, but it can also slow down your phone. The “Don’t keep activities” developer setting makes it so that apps don’t run in the background when closed or switched, keeping RAM memory free to use elsewhere. Galaxy phones aren’t exactly short of RAM though, and this will mean apps restart when switching between them, so it’s not really a setting for multi-taskers.

Simply go to Settings > Developer options and check the box labeled “Don’t keep activities”. Restart after tweaking this option.

12. Finally reset your phone if it’s too slow

If the above workouts were not so effective then better factory data reset your device to get the fastest speed.

This process essentially cleans your phone and gets the software back to factory status. It will be just like the first day you laid fingers on it. You will even have to go through the set-up process and all that again. Do keep in mind a factory data reset will delete everything, so back up all important files before doing this.

If you are ready, simply go to Settings > General management > Reset > Factory data reset. Tap “Reset” and you will be asked for the PIN. Rest let your phone go ahead to clean and bring in new phone back to you.
