Monthly maintenance and cleanup is very essential to make sure that your Android tablet offers you optimum performance. This is something that almost all Android users tend to forget. However, timely maintenance and clean up is very essential for the proper working of any electronic device, and not just tablets.
Android tablets can become clogged with old data, just as computers do, and this buildup of data can negatively affect the performance of the device. Unlike computers though, the internal storage space of Android devices is low, so the upsurge of data can affect these devices pretty fast. If you have noticed that your Android tablet is acting a bit sluggish lately, the buildup of temporary files and data might be the reason for that.
Freeing up some space on your Android tablet to get things back on track is not a difficult task, if you know the steps to be followed. Read on to know the monthly maintenance steps that you need to perform on your tablet to ensure optimum performance of the device.
If you love texting, then you will need to concentrate in this part. If your tablet is still powered by Android 1.5 or 1.6 versions, then you will need to be much careful in this area. Android 2.0 and later versions provide the users with an option to set a maximum value for the messages in a thread, but still, you may not need all the messages in a thread, or the thread itself. So, it is important to get rid of the unnecessary and unwanted messages occasionally.
Most of the apps in your tablet, which can access the internet on the device, will have a cache memory somewhere in the device. Some of the third party applications store these cache files on the SD card (external memory), but the standard apps store the cache files in the internal memory of the device.
Caches are used to save bandwidth and to speed up loading of web pages, but only those web pages or internet content that you use frequently will benefit from this. Therefore, it will be beneficial to get rid of the cache files stored in your Android device. This will speed up both the device and the internet connection.
We use the SD card installed in our tablet to store everything that does not fit anywhere else. You can make use of the File Explorer app to see the contents of the SD card. If the SD card is full with junk, it can slow down the scanning process. Eventually, you will find that it takes much time to open music player, or images.
When this happens, you should understand that it is time to free up some space on the SD card. You need to get rid of the cache files, delete unnecessary temp files, and download folders.
