How to fix common mobile phone and Tablet issues?


Mobile phones run slow

On most mobile devices that are running slow, the first thing you can do is restart the device. You need to hold and do a long press on the power button until you see the restart logo and click it. Another way to check why your phone is running slow is to check if the phone has the latest android or IOS software update. You need to open your phone, go to settings, then tap the Software update.

Check also your phone storage. These might be one of the factors that affect your phone getting slow. What you can do is free up some space on your phone. Open your phone, click on settings, then click general and tap the data storage. Try to delete at least 2GB of data stored on your phones. From that, you may restart your phone and check its activity. 

Another cause of the phone running slow is too many open or running applications that reach the available ram data. Try to close or uninstall some applications that you don’t use. 

Lastly, you may check your data connection or wi-fi connection. You might have a poor signal for data connection and a spotty internet connection.

Mobile phones’ poor battery life

One cause of poor battery life is too many push notifications sent to your phone. Alerts and notifications that are not important continuously alert your phone, which may cause your phone battery to easily drain. There are too many applications that run location services, and some applications are running in the background.

Check your device charger, adapter, or cable wires. Those things may affect or damage the volt input stored in your battery’s poor battery life. It is still advisable or suggested to use the original manufactured by the phone company itself. Try to enable Power-Saving Mode. Some devices today have the Power-Saving Mode that takes care of your battery usage when enabled.

Check your phone if set to a high display setting or if the auto-brightness is ON. You have to reset and keep it manually at a lower level unless you need it higher. Also, try reducing the Sleep timeout to lessen the phone screen live/on for a very long time.

Mobile phones keep crashing

When your device gets hot, it might result in overheating. The device shuts down on its own to prevent damage. You know it’s heating up, or something starts to happen when you touch the back of your phone. You will feel its warm surface.

You have to fix it right away to prevent repeated issues. If you encounter applications that stop responding or repeatedly close, you need to uninstall them and monitor if the problem comes back.

Check your phone’s cache data might be corrupt. The cache is the term that refers to bits of information from games, apps, or web browsing that are automatically stored in your phone. Sometimes you forget to delete your phone’s cache to overload and cause your phone to crash. This problem can be solved, by clearing your phone’s cache data.
