Posted by on October 6, 2013

No matter what mobile device you have, either smartphone or tablet, they will become slower with the passage of time. There are several reasons for this phenomenon, and if you have slow speed problem with your Android tablet, the following tips will help to get your Android tablet back into tip-top shape.

  1. Uninstall unused apps
    Many apps in your android system can remain idle. These will clog up the system memory, which in turn affect the speed. So if you have unused apps, uninstalling them will clear up the memory and improve the speed of your tablet.

  3. Reduce the number of widgets in the home screen
    The benefit of using widgets is that they can help us to quickly find information or do a certain task without having to open an app, but at the same time they can drain your battery life and slow down your tablet’s performance.

    Reducing the number of widgets will help your tablet run more smoothly and last longer. You can remove widgets from the home screen by long-pressing the one you wish to delete and dragging it to the top of the screen.

  4. Use normal wallpaper instead of live wallpaper
    Just like widgets, live wallpaper will slow down your device. So if you want to speed up the performance of your Android tablet, use normal wallpaper and avoid any kind of live wallpaper.
  5. Clear app cache files
    Cached data can build up over time in your applications and affect the performance of your device. To avoid this, you can clear up cache files in the settings menu of each app. However, if you have many apps, that will take time to clean your app cache manually.

    In this case, you can use app cache cleaner to automate the process. Some of the most popular ones include App Cache Cleaner and Clean Master, both of which are available for free in Google Play Store.

  6. Disable animations
    Disabling animations will greatly boost the speed of your tablet. To do that, go to Settings > Developer options and scroll down to Drawing options. Individually turn off the Window animation scale, Transition animation scale and Animation duration scale. This will disable animations on your device so when you open folders or launch apps, they will load immediately rather than animate.
  7. Root your device
    Rooting is another way to speed up your android tablet. Rooting means gaining access to new features and even greater performance boosts. Once rooted, you can overclock your device’s processor, install a custom ROM, etc. However, it also void your device’s warranty and could cause irreversible damage to the device.
