Android performance monitoring tools

 

As it is with any other desktop or mobile operating system, the performance of your Android OS will start to diminish after you use it for some time. Mobile operating systems are supposed to be lighter and faster to keep up with our need to be on the move, yet still give us access to everything. Want to have the best of both worlds? Then, it’s time to do some housekeeping.

If you have noticed that your Android phones performance have been ‘slowing down’, particularly after you’ve been loading it up with tons of Android apps (we don’t blame you) from the Google Play store, we have a few tips to share with you.

With just a few tweaks and changes, you’d probably be able to breathe life into your Android specifically those that have been updated to Android 4.0 and above.

Since the beginning, one of the core tenets of Google’s mobile operating system has been its versatility. Android offers a diverse range of features and a level of personalization that lets you truly make an Android phone your own. But despite its power, Android isn’t without its pitfalls. In fact, it has one weakness that’s particularly pertinent: As an operating system, Android tends to have very poor resource management.

By now, we’re all surely aware that even with half or even a third of the RAM found in the most recent generations of Android devices, iPhones remain top performers because of the strong memory management in iOS. But with as much as six gigabytes of RAM, we shouldn’t be left wanting for performance from our Android devices.

On paper, four or six gigabytes of RAM should be overkill, especially with iOS devices only very recently increasing to three gigabytes with its iPhone 7 Plus, and 2GB (or less) for other older models. Yet the 4 to 6GB found in many modern Android flagships still isn’t overkill. Instead, it shows that OEMs are planning ahead and trying to compensate for Android’s shortcomings. After all, nobody wants to spend over $800 on a brand new smartphone just to have it lag.
