Restart your phone
Even for a powerful phone like the LG G8, restarting can still be used as a solution when it comes to fixing simple delays. Phones are left behind when RAM is overloaded with the waste from too many applications. When you open and close applications, the data codes generated by these applications end up piling up on different sections of your RAM. Over time, even a RAM 6 may give way to delay, especially if the phone has not been restarted for some time. To avoid delays and also improve system performance, try restarting your phone from time to time. This will help you free up additional RAM space. To restart your phone, just press the power button and tap Restart.
Using the LG cleaning tool
Fortunately, the LG G8 has a built-in smart cleaning tool. This tool can help you eliminate problems that could slow down the performance of your phone. To access the LG Smart Tool, go to your device settings, tap General, then tap Smart Clean.
Stop processes in the background
If your phone is still late after cleaning, try disabling certain processes in the background. Background processes can include additional applications that run continuously, even when you are not using them. This can cause excessive use of your RAM, which can adversely affect the performance of the device. Disabling background processes will free up RAM space in applications and stop delays.
Update your applications
Updating your system applications is also an effective way to improve device performance. Your phone may be late because some of your applications are out of date. Download and install the latest updates and your system will automatically start working much better.
Uninstall inactive applications
Applications become inactive when they have not been launched for a long time. It only means that you use them infrequently, but that doesn't mean these apps don't take up space on your device. Uninstall these apps and keep only the useful apps. This will help increase the speed of your device.
Clear application cache
Sometimes your device may be slow because the apps on your phone have cached too much data. This can lead to very low reactivity of the applications when they are launched. This can be useful when using applications whose data come from online sources. A good example can be browser applications such as Google Chrome and Firefox. To clear the application cache, go to Settings, click Applications and notifications, and then click Application info. from there, choose an application to clear the cache, tap Storage> Clear cache.
Perform factory reset
If your device is still late, consider performing a factory reset as a last resort. Anything that slows down the performance of your device will disappear once all the data has been erased from your phone. This process involves the loss of all data from your phone. So be sure to save important items to an external drive or to a cloud. To reset your phone, go to Settings, press Save and reset> Factory data reset. The process may take a few minutes, so you will no longer be able to use your phone during this time.
