For many people, iPhone is the device of show off. It persuades them to stand in line for hours and even for days when a new one is released. Yet, for many users, Android is a preferred choice; however, its openness makes it a juicy target for attackers who can attack on the device, steal private information, and even slowdown it.

Make Android Faster

But with little efforts, anybody can add desired speed and productivity to an Android phone or tablet. Here are the ways to do this.

Use a better browser

If you want a better browser, the suggestion is Opera Mini. It is because of its cloud engine that compresses the data as much as 90%. So when you use Opera Mini, the webs showing up on it are already optimized by a cloud engine. It also has advanced privacy features, including automatically clearing of passwords, cookies and browsing history. If you want supports for Flash and 3D graphics then you can use Opera Mobile instead.

Get an Android optimizer

You can also use an Android optimizer that lets you kill the apps running in background, sucking battery and exhausting CPU without your permission.  You can also set a monthly data limit and monitor how much data you’ve have downloaded so far.

Preserve the battery

If your battery drains more quickly than expectations then there may be something fishy in your mobile. There are apps which you can use to manage battery power so you don’t find your mobile phone discharged when you really need it.  If you don’t need auto sync options, you can also turn off the auto sync function. It can save around 10% battery power. Switching of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will do the same.

Install the apps you do never use

Many times you just hangout on Google Play and download some apps. But you know that you hardly use them. If you do never use these apps, better option is to uninstall them.

Save most apps on you SD Card

Internal memory in mobile device remains limited. It provides sufficient space to the OS to function properly. Some apps use internal drive space to save quick data but if the data fills the entire memory then it can also slowdown the device. Try to shift all your apps on SD card.
