It will not only lend additional capacity to your phone, but will also add to its speed. Various memory cards are available in the market, but the best one are Class 6 an Class 10 cards. You can easily add from 2GB to 32GB storage and boost the execution speed.

You just need to turn this mode on and it will automatically throttle the dispensable things down and judiciously utilizes the available power. These dispensable things include phone vibrations, application’s pop ups, haptic feedbacks and many more. It allows phone’s CPU to use little battery. And since, display is the worst offender in this situation, it also reduces the screen’s frame rate and decreases the brightness.
4. Sync When Required

When sync is on, you will get a notification for every new app update or news or pop ups for every incoming mails. What it does is, it keeps on refreshing at every preset interval, which eats the processor speed and thus, hampers android’s performance.
This Sync feature can be switched off from the Account and Sync settings; you can keep it off for all the programs or some selected programs.
5. Fewer Widgets Will Work Great
Widgets facilitate amazing features like weather check, important dates or shortcuts for essential configuration including switching on or off GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Screen Rotation, Mobile Data, etc., on the homescreen. Once widgets are active, they will consume storage space and keep running in the background. Therefore, in order to speed up the system operations, one should keep the number of active widgets to the minimum.
You can also install some Task Manager or Task Killer application from Google Play store or use some lightweight background applications or root your Android phone and further improve phone’s performance.
