One of the problems most smartphone users face after using their phone for about a year or two is that such smartphones start lagging. However, in this article are some tips to help boost the overall performance of your smartphone if it slows down operation.
Benchmarks are tests that measure the overall performance of different components and compare them against each other. Initially, benchmarks were only available for personal computers but with time, benchmarking apps were also created for smartphones.
While these benchmarks aren't particularly useful for comparing one phone to another(because each model is built and optimized differently), they can help you track your device performance over time.
To know the true picture of your phone's performance, try a variety of benchmarking apps.
Choosing The Right Apps
You should also make sure you choose the best benchmarking app to check the overall performance of your phone. A good benchmarking app should be able to track the performance of your phone and spot any slowdowns as they happen.
The benchmarking apps will provide a comprehensive overview of your phone's performance. However, you might want to test more specific aspects of your mobile device such as the web browser and the battery.
You can start by running an app that will tell you whether your internet service provider (ISP) is providing the download and upload speed it promises.
You can also benchmark your phone's battery performance so that you will be able to stop dwindling battery life for your device.
Reclaim Your Phone's Performance
You can benchmark your phone regularly to track the performance from time to time however if your device starts performing below expectation. You might want to consider doing some things to reclaim your phone's performance.
The best course of action is to get rid of files you no longer need, back up the ones that are important and maintain a healthy amount of spare storage space. Then run your benchmark again to see if you need to take further action.
If further action is required, consider backing up your files and formatting your phone as it will get rid of unneeded apps and built-up junk data.
