2. Use the don’t keep activities setting

Similar to the above method, this is also a setting hidden inside the developer options on your phone. What it basically does is that it will close an app or any kind of activity or background process related to it, as soon as you leave the app. Normally Android keeps all the apps and games you open running in the background at all times until your device runs out of memory.

But, if you enable this setting, any app or game will be instantly closed and will be removed the system memory as soon as you leave the app. By this way there will be lesser number of processes running in the background, which means lesser amount of memory occupied and faster performance. Just open the developer options and then enable the ‘Don’t keep activities’ box.

3. Regularly clear Cache

Android generally stores a cached version of the apps and games you use in the internal storage memory. While it is useful to instantly access the apps and for multi tasking, in reality Cache might affect your performance in the long run. A lot of these cached data are generally useless junk files just occupying your precious space.

So, you can significantly improve the performance of your device if you keep the practice of frequently clearing the Cache from your phone. You can do this by going to Settings->Apps->App Manager. From here, you can either open the app individually and clear the unwanted cache or use the clear data option to delete the entire cache of all the apps and games installed on your device.

4. Disable or Uninstall unused apps

People frequently tend to install a lot of apps or games to on their phones just to play for a while or see how it looks or works and then after a while they forget that these apps even exist. But the fact is that these apps or games boot along with your system and some of them might even run constantly in the background without you even noticing.

So, it is advisable to delete these unused and unwanted apps then and there so that they don’t reduce the performance or the battery life of your system. If you cannot uninstall certain apps you can always choose to disable them by going to the Apps menu under the settings app. Once you uninstall these apps you can notice a improvement in the performance of your device instantly.

5. Disable the Always on mode

Samsung first introduced the always on display to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge. It is basically a way to keep your screen always on with only important things like the time, date and the notifications displayed. While this sound highly useful and practical, it might actually affect the performance and battery life of your device in the long run.

For instance, a battery test run on the Samsung devices revealed that the Always on display uses almost 5% of the phone’s battery in a 24 hour time period and it might also affect the performance since it needs a lot of resources to keep working at all times. So, if you are not a fan of the always on mode on your device, you can go ahead and disable it by going to Settings->Display->Always on Display.

If you are not satisfied with the above methods and would like to improve the performance of your device further more, then you can try to root your device and install a custom ROM to radically improve both the battery life and the performance of your Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 and the S8 Plus.
