In just a few minutes, you can make your phone look like new again, or at least fool yourself into thinking it’s while waiting for an upgrade. Below I will show you five ways to modify your Android phone.
Delete from play store
Take a few minutes to browse your home screen or app drawer and delete any and all apps that you no longer use. Not only do these apps take up valuable storage space, but they will likely still be able to access any of the personal information that you agreed to when you launch the app for the first time.
The method for deleting the app can vary depending on who made your device, but I have covered all the bases in this post. Read it if you don’t see the Uninstall option after long pressing the app icon.
Free up more device storage space
After removing any old apps, free up more storage space
Browse through the files saved on your Android phone. It’s very easy to forget about all the files you downloaded randomly – like your list of external requests for a new place on the road, or a GIF that a friend sent you. And these files accumulate. The fastest and easiest way to manage your phone storage space is to use the preinstalled Files app. In fact, some phones use a different version of the same app. On Samsung, for example, it’s called My Files. On the Pixel lineup ($ 88 on Amazon), they’re files only. On OnePlus 9, it’s the file manager – you get the point.
I recommend opening the app drawer on your phone and accessing “files”. Chances are, that will reveal anything your phone maker is connected to.
Start by checking the Downloads folder, where you can either delete files you no longer want, or move them to somewhere like Google Drive or another cloud storage provider.
Most of the file apps will also detect any large files that are saved on your device. For example, the OnePlus 9 Pro file manager app has a dedicated section in
The app for files that take up a lot of space.
Make your home screen look and work the way you want it to
One of the best parts of Android is how much it enables you to completely customize the look of your phone. From installing app icon packs to completely replacing the launcher your phone is using, there are plenty of options for customizing your phone.
While you can definitely go to tweaking launchers and pinning app icons, start by looking at the Home screen settings your phone already provides. I do this every once in a while and surprisingly subtle adjustments to aspects like the app layout can make it look like a brand new phone.
Long-press on an empty area of your home screen, then select Home Page Settings (or some variation of that). This will open up your Home Screen options, where you can customize various settings.
Settings such as application network size. It might seem like a minor change to go from a 4×5 to 5×5 grid, but that extra column can make all the difference (the same can be said about shrinking the grid).
This is where you’ll also find settings for things like swiping down on the home screen to show notifications instead of having to swipe from the top of the screen.
Go to your phone’s settings and try setting up your home screen.
Hardware settings are often overlooked, but it is very important to get your device right.
Sort your device settings
Talking about settings now is a good time to go ahead and change whatever settings were bothering you. I have a report on the settings you want to change and customize on any Android phone to get the most out of it.
For example, turning on dark mode not only improves the appearance of the app but also saves battery life. And yes, until I show you how st
