Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 8 minutes

We will try to rule-out each and every possibility until we can determine the real problem and resolve it. So, if you have a similar problem on your phone, then continue reading for this post might help you.

  1. First solution: Perform the Forced Restart.


    More often, sluggishness occurs due to a glitch in the system. It is possible that some services are performing poorly that resulted in your device to run slow. So, to eliminate this suspicion, we recommend you do a forced restart.

    Doing this method will refresh the memory of the device and reload all services that might be functioning poorly. This is how its done:

    1. So press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 8 seconds. This will trigger your phone to shut down and power back up. 
    2. When the logo shows, release both keys and allow your phone to continue the boot process. 

    After the restart, use your phone and observe if it is still running slow. If so, proceed to the next method.

  2. Second solution: Boot your phone in Safe Mode.


    Another factor to consider that could trigger issues like this is due to some third-party apps installed on your phone. It is possible that one or a couple of apps complicate the system that resulted in the device to become sluggish.

    By booting your Galaxy A53 into Safe Mode, all third-party apps will be temporarily disabled and only the pre-installed ones will be running in the system. Here's how you boot your phone in Safe Mode:

    1. Press and hold the Power key until options show. 
    2. Tap and hold the Power off option until it changes into Safe Mode. 
    3. Tap the Safe mode icon to restart your device.
    4. Once the reboot is successful, you should see ‘Safe mode’ at the lower-left corner of the screen. 

    So, while in this mode and your phone functions normally, then obviously one of your third-party apps is causing it. You can uninstall each app you downloaded on your phone until the issue is fixed.

  3. Third solution: Wipe the cache partition.


    Sometimes due to corrupted files and data saved in the system, it is possible that the device will function poorly. So, to eliminate this suspicion, all you need to do is to wipe the cache partition of your phone.

    Doing this method will remove all old files in the system and replace them with newer ones. Don't worry, this method will not delete your important files. 

    1. Turn off the device.
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power keys.
    3. When the Samsung logo shows, release all three keys.
    4. Your Galaxy A53 will continue to boot up into the Recovery Mode. Once you see a black screen with blue and yellow texts, proceed to the next step. 
    5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
    6. Press Power key to select.
    7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
    8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
    9. Press the Power key to restart the device.

    After wiping the cache partition, use your phone and observe if it's still running slowly. In most cases, deleting the system cache will actually fix any performance related problems.  

  4. Fourth solution: Backup your files and reset your phone.


    If all methods you performed failed to resolve the issue, then your last resort is to do a reset on your phone.

    Unlike other methods, this one is more complicated because you have to create a backup with your files and data because all will be deleted during the process.

    The good thing is, if this is just a firmware-related problem, then this method will surely fix it. Here's how you do a reset:

    1. Turn off the device.
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power keys.
    3. When the Samsung logo shows, release all three keys.
    4. Your Galaxy A53 will continue to boot up into the Recovery Mode. Once you see a black screen with blue and yellow texts, proceed to the next step. 
    5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’.
    6. Press Power button to select.
    7. Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes’ is highlighted.
    8. Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
    9. When the master reset is complete, ‘Reboot system now’ is highlighted.
    10. Press the Power key to restart the device.

    It will take just a minute or two before your phone will boot up and bring you to the set up page. So take a little time setting it up as a new device before you actually restore your files, backups and apps.
