Get slow with apps

This type of terminal is very well known for thanks to its large internal storage space and good RAM memory, so generally most people, having so much space available, end up downloading an exaggerated number of apps to the point of becoming full or almost completely full. the memory. Many applications start working just as the computer is turned on, thus causing the tablet to slow down, so it is recommended that you free up storage space from time to time.

How to make my tablet faster?

There are a few options that will help you have a faster tablet and avoid that slowdown problem caused by endless variations. Among the most important options you can do, you have:

  • Go to the option Settings - About phone - Build number.
  • Click on the latter option 7 times until an ad appears saying you are now a developer.
  • Now go to an option called Developer Settings. It's in the settings menu, before the About tablet option.

Restart the tablet

The restart point of the tablet is based on the fact that there are many applications running in the background and when you close them you will limit the use of the cache. All of this will lead to a slightly smoother tablet.

Update app

Applications that have not been updated for a long time can cause tablet performance issues. Like those applications that are not used and only occupy a space that reduces the fluidity of the tablet.

If we have many applications downloaded to our tablet, it's best to try selecting and uninstalling the ones you don't use much. This will greatly improve the performance of our terminal when we want to use it.

Closing force

This can be done from the settings application, once you have identified which application you want to force quit.
