We all know that feeling when you get a new smartphone. You literally blow up with excitement and start experimenting with all the apps. You upgrade to the latest Facebook version, get the coolest and most energy-consuming games and you’re using it so much that you feel the battery burning inside it. But the cool part only lasts for a few weeks or months, then your phone is beginning to move like a total snail.
But let’s face it: we cannot spend hundreds of dollars every few months, once or twice a year for the best experience we can get. So does this mean that we should just buy a new phone and not do much with it in the beginning? No. This is where it gets interesting: if you are willing to put a 20 minute effort into it, you can make your student phone run faster than ever.
So we are going to run through the basic tips and tricks that you need to be aware of in order to make your 1950s phone work like a NASA space rocket.
Step one is to make sure that you delete or replace all the apps that drain the life out of your phone. You might be surprised, but WhatsApp, Facebook or Messenger can literally kill your phone. That’s why you should look for some alternatives. Facebook can simply be replaced by Facebook Lite and be done with it.
Also, there are manufacturer apps that eat away at your CPU, but while you cannot uninstall them, you can definitely disable them and look for better alternatives. Look at how much Contacts drains from your battery then replace it with Contacts+. You will thank us later.
Step two is rooting your phone. Explaining this in detail would mean that we’re robbing you of your time, but what you need to know for sure is that rooting your phone means that you have permissions over your phone. We are talking about those manufacturer permissions that usually prevent you from doing whatever you want.
The best and easiest way to root your phone is via root toolkits and we recommend Kingo Root wholeheartedly. Just make sure you backup all your valuable info before rooting.
Step three is acquiring SuperSu. SuperSu is a permissions manager that allows you to accept or deny an app’s permission requests. After your phone has been rooted, apps will dig into your settings, and they will dig deep. So with SuperSu you can only make sure that nothing goes further than you allow it to, making it the best app of its kind out there.
If you have taken all these steps, the only thing we have left to recommend is getting any app that will monitor the rest of them and detect when something wants to drain your phone’s battery. Greenify is one of these apps. It literally forces apps that drain your battery life into hibernation, making sure that your phone stays health at all times. Apply all these steps and witness the rocket launcher in your hands.
