9. Perform a factory reset

If mobile is super slow and frequently gets restarted or switches off automatically, it may be due to lots of unwanted junks and unnecessary apps on your device. So, to speed up the device factory reset can be a good option.

But remember factory reset means all your settings and data get erases so don’t do it frequently. Backup your important information and data before performing a factory reset.

10. Avoid task killers

It sounds odd but task killing, in reality, slows down performance. Modern Android devices are efficient to manage memory somehow. Mobile automatically kills less important processes in the background to free space.

When you kill tasks and re-launch the program, it takes even more time and space for booting/loading.
