itel phones are entry-level Android smartphones equipped with the most basic resources. Why? Resources cost money, and so there is only one way to make affordable smartphones: to use the barest minimum resources. Because of this, the average itel smartphone is fitted with a basic, low-end processor coupled with just 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM. The implication is that system resources are stretched thin, and the phone will run slow and sometimes even hang or freeze. This article provides you with simple tips on how to make your itel phone faster.
Why is your itel phone hanging, or lagging, or running slow? How can you speed it up? There are two key factors affecting your phone’s performance. They are the processor and RAM. The processor determines how powerful your device is, while the RAM determines how smoothly apps launch and run on the phone. RAM (Random Access Memory) is a temporary storage for running apps. Both of these resources are low in an itel smartphone. We can’t do anything about the processor, but RAM usage can be managed. Bear this in mind, as we look at the ways to make your itel phone faster.
Make your itel phone faster by not using many apps at the same time
As already mentioned earlier, itel makes affordable, entry-level phones. This means that the average itel smartphone has no more than 2 GB of RAM, which is pretty low. The lower the RAM, the easier you need to go on your phone. This is because it has less resources for apps to run with. If you switch between a lot of apps on it, the RAM gets used up and the phone begins to slow down.
The first thing you must learn to do is to not push your itel phone too hard by opening and using a lot of apps at the same time. Switching between many apps means they keep running in the background, using up precious resources. If you have used a lot of apps on the phone, you need to shut down those apps to keep things running smoothly. To do this, open the Running Apps menu, then slide up on the app you want to close. Repeat this for as many apps as you need to shut down.
Make your itel Phone faster by keeping the storage free
Your itel smartphone will begin to slow to a crawl if you have less than 10% storage memory available. As such, if possible, get a memory card and save your files on it by default. This is to keep your already small phone memory free, as much as possible.
Make your itel phone faster by restarting it regularly
Restarting your cellphone on a regular basis, say weekly, is an easy way of clearing its memory of junk. This is low-hanging fruit. You will be amazed how much smoother or faster your itel smartphone runs just because you do this. Restart your phone at least once a week to make it faster.
Make your itel phone faster by not clogging it up with app updates
Every time you run app updates, your cellphone storage gets clogged up with extra baggage. Each updated app takes up more system space – even those apps that you do not use, especially those pre-installed by the manufacturer. What to do? Do not turn on automatic app updates. Instead, make it a duty to manually update only the apps that you use or need.
Make your itel phone faster by keeping it from getting hot
You already know that overheating is a bad thing for any kind of electronic or machinery. If your phone heats up significantly, that impacts its performance, and it will slow down if you do not let it cool off. Keep your cellphone away from hot environments. If, while using your phone, it begins to heat up, put it down and let it cool off for a while. It will serve you better if you treat it right, this way.
With these few tips, you should see your itel phone perform better, and run faster and smoother. All the best.
