We all know that androids can be a little temperamental at times. With so many different devices and screen sizes, it’s no wonder that sometimes things go wrong. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most common android problems and their quick solutions. If you are experiencing any of these issues, don’t worry – we have got you covered!
Low Storage: You might be asking yourself, is this even a problem? From the outset, the issue of low storage seems like a hardware problem. Simply add in more storage, and you are good to go. While that is the best solution to the problem, there are multiple software on your phone that you could live without. Your phone comes with several pre-installed software that you can delete to free up more space. For example, every Samsung phone ships with Bumble installed. If you are not a huge fan of the dating app, you can remove it and free more space. In addition, you can always store your files and photos in the cloud and free more space on your device. Also, remember to delete files you no longer need. While a few kilobytes may not seem like much when you talk about the number of files you have been storing ever since buying the phone, it’s quite a substantial number.
Battery Problems: Android and long-lasting batteries don’t usually go in the same sentence. The main problem with battery life on Android phones is the number of apps that run in the background. To increase your battery life, you need to identify and close these apps. Go to your phone’s settings and select ‘Battery.’ Here, you will be able to see a list of all the apps that have been running in the background and draining your battery. Close these apps, and you will see an immediate difference in your battery life.
Screen Problems: One of the most common problems people face with their android devices is a cracked or broken screen. While this can be a huge inconvenience, there are several ways to fix it. You can take it to a professional and have them replace the screen for you. However, if you are looking for a cheaper option, you can always buy a screen protector. Screen protectors are not only affordable, but they also provide an extra layer of protection to your device.
Too much bloatware: A bloatware is an app that comes pre-installed on your device, and you cannot remove it. These apps are generally useless and take up a lot of space on your device. To remove bloatware from your phone, you need to root your device. Rooting is the process of gaining access to the Android operating system code and making changes to it. Once you have rooted your device, you can delete any bloatware that is taking up space on your phone. Most manufacturers don’t recommend rooting your phone unless it’s out of the manufacturing line. Rooting your phone will violate the warranty. If you want to root your phone despite the circumstances, remember to do your research first and backup all your data.
A slow-running phone: As the years pass by, your android phone becomes slow. For many models, that’s the way of life. Once it reaches its 2-year life span, cheaper models start slowing down, and you do not have any option but to replace the phone completely. But on the higher models, there are a few things you can do to make your phone run faster. One is to install a custom ROM. A custom ROM is a firmware that is not provided by the manufacturer but is developed by third-party developers. It has all the features of the original firmware and is optimized for performance. The other thing you can do to speed up your phone is to delete unused apps and files. As we discussed earlier, every file and app on your phone takes up space and slows down your device. If you are not using an app, delete it!
Freezing Phones: Another common problem people face with their android phone is that it freezes. This usually happens when you have too many apps running in the background or when you are low on storage space. To fix this issue, you need to identify the app that is causing the problem and close it. Go to your phone’s settings and select ‘Apps.’ Here, you will be able to see a list of all the apps that are installed on your phone. Select the app that is causing the problem and select ‘Force stop.’ This will close the app and hopefully fix the freezing issue.
The phone won’t charge: If your phone won’t charge, the first thing you need to do is clean the charging port. Over time, the charging port becomes clogged with dust and dirt, and this prevents the charger from making a proper connection with the phone. Use a can of compressed air to blow out the charging port. If that doesn’t work, try using a different charger. Sometimes, the problem lies with the charger and not with the phone. If you are still having problems, take your phone to a professional and have them take a look at it.
These are some of the most common problems people face with their android phones. While they may seem like big issues, there are always quick and easy solutions. While it can be tempting to tinker with your device, we recommend taking your phone to a cell phone repair professional if you are experiencing any problems.
