    When you get a totally new Smart phone, it is fast and smooth. While it is getting slow and laggard after it is used for a period, right? Getting a new one will cost you too much. So I believe that you must want to know how to speed up your Smart phone in an easy and money-saving way. Here are some ways to make your old phone run faster and smoother.
    Know Your Phone’s Running Status
    Before you actually do something to speed up your phone, the first thing you need to do is know your phone’s running status. You feel that you phone is slow, but you don’t exactly know how slow it is. Here is an app called Phone Speed Tester will tell you exactly how slow your phone it is. It is specially designed for Android Smart phone user to test your phone’s running speed by comparing your test result with others’. Your phone needs to be optimized if your test score is sub-average in the same series.
    Manage Your Boot List to Shorten Your Boot-Up Time
    After knowing your phone’s running statue, now you need to manage your boot list. Why? You must have the same experience with me, namely, it takes too long to boot up your phone because Android OS will auto-load some processes and apps. As a result, too many processes and apps that boot up together with your phone’s system will slow down your boot speed, as well as your phone’s running speed. How to know what processes and apps will auto-boot up with the system? How to safely manage them? The answer is Startup Manager, which is an android app that helps you clean up your boot list and speed up your boot speed. It clearly lists what apps and processes are configured to auto-run during system start-up. Startup Manager helps you safely disable any unwanted app or process from running at boot list just by a simple click.
    Kill Running Tasks/ Services/Processes to Speed Up Your Phone
    Now Smart phone can run multiple tasks in the foreground and background at the same time. Is your phone still slow after you have exited the running apps? It seems that you have exited them completely; in fact, they are still running in the background to slow down your phone. A good task manager is a must for Smart phone in order to let it run faster. I think Advanced Task Manager can help you out. It allows android phone users easily end the running tasks, services and processes to free up space in memory, speed up phones and save battery.
    Main Features:
    1. Easy to use;
    2. Auto-end;
    3. View System info, like CPU, Memory and SD card current usages;
    4. Quick boot list manager;
    5. Exclude list to exclude some apps;
    5. Quick uninstaller.
    Uninstall or Remove Unwanted Apps to Free Up Space
    Available memory is quite important for Smart phone. Too many apps installed on your phone can slow down it. The more available memory your phone has, the faster it runs. You can uninstall these rarely used apps by turning to Menu> Settings > Applications > Manage Applications. But this traditional way has some disadvantages. For example, you cannot back up for the apps that are going to be removed. It is quite annoying that you have to uninstall them one by one. Your better option is to use App Uninstaller to remove your unwanted apps. You have an option to back them up before you uninstall them; thus, you can easily reinstall them instead of search them again.
    I hope that the above four tips can really help you more or less. More info please visit: speed up android phone

    Nice Post.......you're gonna get some criticism on the task killer stuff though. All those apps put more strain on the system.

    No. I've had my Droid for a long time and it's running just fine.

    Faulty assumption. Simply using internal storage space doesn't down the phone. Even having the app running doesn't necessarily slow down the phone. Having more RAM free helps but only if lack of RAM is the cause of the lagging. There are other causes.

    Additionally, background apps don't use resources unless they're syncing or doing something in the background. All this plus task killers are old beaten dead horses that have been endlessly covered in the past.

    Good try but it's not quite there.
