People have adopted the smartphones as part of their daily life. With a lot of companies launching their brands, smartphones remain the same, at least in functionality. With a plethora of features, they can be overwhelming to own and even operate, with most people not getting the best performance from their smart handsets. Today we look at some of the tips you can use to get better performance from your smart partner.
Top smartphone tips
Changing default apps
Default apps are the traditional apps that ship with smartphones to do specific tasks. In most cases, these apps come with only the essential features, making them a bit dull and boring. To make things a little exciting, you can install other third party apps and make them the default. For example, you can install a new messaging app that adds new features such as group messaging, user blocking amongst other useful features.
If you are one of those people that don’t care much about aesthetics, you can easily do away with smartphone animations and have more computing power. Animations make the phone’s user interface seem more smooth in its operations. Animations include stuff like icons dancing when you touch them or sounds responding to specific gestures. While they make smartphones more visually appealing, they are demanding in regards to computational power.
Disable background data
Background data is notoriously known to slow down smartphones and even overuse data if the phone is on a prepaid subscription. Features such as auto update are essential and supported by enabling background data, but the fact that the phone always checks for updates slows down the system. For people that are on a prepaid network, having background data on can increase the amount you spend on phone services, especially Internet subscriptions.
The smartphone screens have gone through drastic improvements since their advent. With a lot of effort gone into making them display realistic images, little work has been done to improve their energy efficiency. Screens have been known to drain batteries quicker, especially at their peak performance.
