Today almost everyone has an Android smartphone. These devices come with different specifications and in different sizes to suit each person’s taste.
However, after six months of heavy usage, you’ll notice a reduction in efficiency and performance .
There are many potential reasons that make smartphones to slow down after several months. So, in this post, I’m going to outline 5 common reasons which makes your phone to slow down after few months of usage.
1) OS Upgrades
Normally, Google releases updates annually and the latest version is Oreo ( I’m guessing the next version would be android pudding �).
Remember, when you first bought your phone, it might be running Android Marshmallow before you get an Upgrade notification. These upgrades are released with a certain set of hardware specs in mind.
This year, smartphone specifications have drastically improved. Many features have been added in the Android OS. However, these features are made with newer hardware specs in mind. So, there is a chance that if you are running the newer version of any operating system in an outdated phone then this can slow down your phone in no-time.
However, these upgrades are hard to ignore as it is for a Nigerian snake to avoid swallowing money.��
Minor updates are okay, but if you are planning to jump from Android Nougat to Oreo then be ready to face the difficulties.
2. App Updates
Facebook initially took just 35MB the first time I downloaded it , now with constant updates it’s taking almost 300MB now .The so-called ‘lightweight’ apps that you install can transform to ‘heavyweight’ over the time. Developers are constantly pushing updates, every new update brings new features, which ends up using lots of RAM and CPU.
