The most irritating part is you see many junk files created by apps that we use. First of all clean junk files during a specific time span, you don’t need to do it manually as there is an app for that. The popular app is Clean Master or you can even use updated version of ES File Explorer. Do this every week if possible.

#  2.  Uninstall Unwanted Apps –

If you are not using certain apps regularly then it is better to uninstall such apps. You can anytime download updated version from Google play store to use it when required. Such apps keep running in the background and demands space on your ram and consume battery.

#  3.  Take Backup –

If you have any sensitive data or large files then take backup and store it at a safe place. You can store it on computer, external drive or even in the cloud.

#  4.  Don't Overcharge –

It doesn’t matter if your device shuts down due to low battery but don’t overcharge your device in any case. Overcharging decreases battery life of a device. You can carry latest power banks if you don’t want your device to turn off due to low battery.

#  6.  Let Battery Drain Completely –

Do you charge your device every time when it asks so? Don’t do it next time. Draining battery completely increases battery life, at least make sure battery drains completely at least once in a month. Start charging only when it turns off due to 0% battery level.

#  7.  Don’t Remove Battery Directly –

Removing battery from device directly can raise performance issues. ALWAYS turn off the device while removing battery. Even if device hangs, wait for a while and try to turn off the device.

#  8.  Update Antivirus –

Do you have any pre-installed default antivirus app in device? If not then head to play store and download popular antivirus (after checking reviews).  Make sure you are updating antivirus app time to time, at least once in a couple of weeks.
