LOW RAM has always been the most serious issue among most of the Android users across the globe that pushes them back from enjoying the Brilliant features that this OS is made for such as Multitasking, High-end gaming experience, Robust usage,High graphics Etc.
So,Today I am here to present you all with a simple guide to make your android device lightning fast.just follow the steps mentioned below and I guarantee that you will feel a difference.

IMPORTANT:

Most of the methods mentioned under are made to work for Rooted devices but some may work on Non-Rooted also.

NOTE:
This guide shall only serve as an epitome of the data collected from various sources on internet and I shall not be responsible for any damage to your device in any case.

So,let’s take the call!

1. Remove Bloatware

Manufacturers and carriers often load Android phones with their own apps. If you don’t use them, they just clutter your system, or–even worse–drain your battery in the background. Take control of your device and stop the bloatware.

How to Disable Bloatware With Android’s Built-In Setting

Disabling bloatware on newer phones is easy. Just open your app drawer and tap Android’s “Settings” app, then go to “Apps”. You may have to swipe over to the “All” tab to see all the apps on your system.

Select the app you want to disable–we’ll use “Motorola Spotlight Player” as an example–and press the “Disable” button.

You’ll get a prompt warning you about possible problems, but it’s okay–we’re just disabling it. If you experience issues, you can always come back to this same screen and re-enable the app later.

After disabling it, you may also want to tap the “Force Stop” and “Clear Data” buttons as well.

Note that not all apps will have this disable option–but in many cases, they should. If they don’t, you’ll need to use the rooted method below to disable them.

HOW TO REMOVE BLOATWARE ON ROOTED DEVICE:

If you have a rooted device,then it becomes very easy to remove BLOATWARE from it.we are going to need only a good file manager app such as ES EXPLORER/ROOT EXPLORER  here .just follow these steps:

1. Open file manager.

2. Allow super su permission granted(mount as r/w) .

3. Go to Root>system>apps .

4. Select all the BLOATWARE apps like Picasa,google calendar sync i.e all the apps starting from name GOOGLE .

5. Take a backup of these apps in your sdcard .

6. Now Delete all the selected apps.

7.Reboot.

DONE.

In This Way,You Can Remove All The BLOATWARE Apps that are consuming your device memory.

2. ANIMATION TRANSITION SCALE:

This method works for both Rooted and Non-Rooted devices.

1.Go to your device settings>developer options>windows animation transition scale.

2. Select the value of animation transition scale to minimum value i.e 0.25x or 1x (don’t switch it off) in each field.

3.Reboot.

4. Done.

4. ROEHSOFT RAM EXPANDER

Insufficient RAM, memory is too small? Use your SD card as a working memory expansion! A Memory Manager wich make’s you life more easy as you think…
A great programmer once said to insufficient RAM -RAM only helps-. Convince yourself how right this man had. Finally, more memory with a click! Memory from Android 1.6 up with root access and external SD card! More memory means that background tasks will never more automaticaly terminated, and many programs will work correctly in the first place!

On many devices, there are problems with games require a lot of memory, this fixes the problems RAMEXPANDER. And they can play latest games on devices that otherwise would not be able to start such APPs. No more out of memory! No more memory is full!

Features

1. Free SD card memory as a RAM use (SWAP RAM / SWAP MEMORY)

2. Swapfile RAM expansion up to 4.0 GB (file system limit)

3. No limit on SWAP partition!

4. The usual performance degradation when paged not occur with sd card from class-8

5. Widget for PNP swap (swap on / off swap)

6. Detailed Memory Information & Analysis.

7. Autorun

8. Swappiness kernel parameter set

9. Easy foolproof use.

GUIDE TO USE:

1. Download the SwapIt Ram Expander apk file and place the file on the root of the sdcard.

2. Install the apk using any file manager.

3. Open the app .You can select upto 2.5 GB for expansion and set the swapiness value to 100.The app can also suggest
the optimal value for your phone.

4. You can select the autorun option if you want to run the app on reboot.

5. Close the app. Now you can notice the considerable increase in the speed of
your android

*just remember-not all kernel support swap.
*It’s safe for the files on the SD card. The swapped RAM is stored separately.

5. USE CUSTOM LAUNCHERS

Stock android launchers also occupy a lot of Ram and cache storage .so, it is better to use a custom launcher .I am providing a list of low ram consuming custom launchers here:

1. NOVA LAUNCHER
2. APEX LAUNCHER
3. ACTION LAUNCHER
4. LIGHTNING LAUNCHER
5. GOOGLE NOW LAUNCHER
6. MIUI LAUNCHER

You can use any of these after removing your stock launcher.

APART FROM LAUNCHER, THERE ARE MANY MORE APPS WHICH CONSUME A LOT OF RAM SUCH AS MUSIC PLAYERS.

So,It is better to use low Ram consuming music players.
so,here i would suggest you to go for OMICHSOFT MUSIC PLAYER  or APOLLO MUSIC PLAYER which are both good looking and fully featured.
