Since I had my first smartphone back in 2005/2006, my problems with memory of the handsets were constant. Just be the memory to run programs or the memory to store files, run out of space and even in cases where, suddenly, the cell phone hung out of nowhere, they were very common with me.
These problems continued to appear over time. Due to my disappointment, I restored the configuration of my phone to factory and loaded with applications again. It even worked, to the point where it slowed down again and I had to do the whole process again. That’s when I did not use the whole memory before.
Like what we already know, smartphones are found almost everywhere, and they range from basic models to the top of the line. As time goes by, they all slow down and the memory gradually gets busy. This is why you should keep your phone clean in both RAM and physical memory by following the simple tips.
Update your phone software regularly. It fixes some bugs, firmwares and some lags. In some cases, it may even take up less space in the physical memory of your device.
Factory Default Settings
Make a backup of your entire device and return it to the factory settings. Performing this tip erases everything and brings your phone back to a new condition. Back up your contact lists and other important information before performing this tip.
Choose your apps well
Uninstall any unused applications. We often download several applications, but few actually use them. Delete some of these that you do not use as it helps to ease memory consumption.
Restart your phone
When the device experiences delays and slowness, restart it. Somehow, it helps, even being a temporary option.
Root on your device

Applications to optimize memories
In all application stores there are at least 10 programs to optimize the use of RAM and/or physical memory of your mobile device. Choose the ones with the best rating and optimize your device.
Organize your apps
Reduce the number of home screens by creating folders for your applications and leaving only the ones you use most frequently in view.
Monitor applications separately
Each application consumes an X amount of RAM and physical memory from your device. See which ones are taking up more space and make sure you can get rid of them.
Back up your music and photos
Send music and photos to your computer or an online storage service and be free of precious storage space on your device.
Buy a microSD card
You can buy a microSD card if your device has an entry, thus freeing up memory space on your smartphone. Remember to check the compatibility of your device before.
Bonus: buy a new cell phone
Did you do all of that and your cell phone is still slow or out of memory? So it’s time to buy a new cell phone to meet your new needs. Just be careful not to spend too much or mess up your resources.
