Why is my phone slowing down and how can I speed it up?

Last Update date : Sep 15. 2021

Smartphones may slow down, freeze or crash for various reasons. The likely culprits are full storage space and outdated software. Here are some tips to try to get your phone back up to working order.


  • Screen images and menu items may vary depending on your model and software version.
Check your storage space on the device and delete unnecessary files

Freeing up some storage can make your phone perform better. Remove files and apps that need clearing out by using Device care.


  • If you don't see a delete/uninstall option, the files/apps are required by the operating system and safe to keep.
Close unused apps

Device speed can slow when apps are running in the background. Keep your device in optimal running condition with Optimization.
