Why not reset it to as new?
Then you get a fresh start. No one I know uses these to store anything so a fresh start is a fresh start.
Yeah, that is an option....
Hi Bob, Yes, that is an option......
But I was wondering whether others had the same problem, had understood what caused it and found a less drastic solution!
At the office, we have have other ways.
But I find most folk want to use the tablet. They don't want to go to the running apps app or install an app that will take a look at what app is using CPU and RAM.
There's another issue dogging Android and it really shouldn't be here except the same issues that dog software developers still haunt us today. Tell me if you need to dive into that area.
Remember I don't call reset to be drastic. I just reset 2 or 3 tablets last week and didn't think anything about it.
I've got the small samsung tablet and the larger one, they are both bad have gotten so slow it's not even worth using them cuz sooo frustrating! I've tried everything to fix it but nothing works. I think they are just bad products! I would never get another samsung. Go with the iPads from everyone I know with one there has never been any trouble!
responding to slow android probs
Not being that pc knowledgeable, I'm petrified about wiping my tablet that keeps me alive!
Somehow, I've ended up with a smart(ish) Windows 8.1 pc.
Also, amy new Sony Android tablet (whose sister Z1 phone is back at repair with a repair charge (4 months old) for a broken screen of over £180!!!!).
At 60 yrs old, I worry a bit - and living on severe disability allowance, think that, without my bloody expensive smart phone, I'm a bit stuck.
If I reset this to new & lose my data, I'll never know how to get it back....
That's not good.
If your data is only on the phone then it's not safe. I'd do more research or why not DEMAND the supplier tell you how to backup and restore your content?
Solution 1. Uninstall all existing apps
2. After uninstall use 1-2 apps and check the speed.
3. Install one Anti-virus
4. Format the Tab
It may be because you have installed more apps and your tab not much RAM to support that. You know if you don't use FB apps it keeps running in the backend, as result it slows the Tab performance. You need to check what are the apps running backend and you need to force stop that. I hope you can get benifit from my answer.
Given step 4, why steps 1 2 3?
You should empty you internal memory and remove external memory. There may be any virus so scan also your tablet and then try again.
I don't think so
I've yet to hear about ANY virus on an Android device.....Digger
SImilar to a home computer....
....the longer you own/use the device, the more applications/add-ons are installed, the device will start to slow down. No difference with a tablet. Installing new apps to verify what apps are currently running will slow it down further. Android has built in tools to verify which applications are running and the ability to shut down applications manually.
virus or storage problem
I think it may be virus problems, so i think update your antivirus and scan it. Also it has the problem of storage capacity, Android mobiles which have less internal storage and RAM then it makes slower and slower our smartphones. You can format your phone and restart again.
Virus is not likely....
....the issue for the OP.
Nod to storage or app problem.
I've lost count of finding AD SUPPORTED APPS that cause troubles.
Android speed up
Install 'android assistant free'. select processes. put a tick next to every app you dont need. Tap 'kill' apps. Repeat this 2 or 3 times as the app works cumulatively though it seems to remove most on first go..
