  1. First solution: Perform the Forced Restart.


    Performance-related issues often occur due to a glitch in the system. To eliminate this suspicion, we recommend you to do a forced restart on your phone. Doing this will close all apps running in the background and reload all services. So, if a glitch in the system is causing your device to run slow or sluggish, then this method will fix it. Here's how:

    1. Press and hold the Volume Down button and don’t release it yet. 
    2. While holding down the volume button, press and hold the Power key as well. 
    3. Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Samsung logo shows on the screen.

    However, if your Galaxy A73 is still sluggish, move to the next method.

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


    Sometimes, due to incompatible third-party apps installed on the system, performance-related issues will likely occur. It’s possible one of the apps complicates the system and leads the device to become sluggish.

    So, by booting in Safe mode, all third-party apps won't be running temporarily and letting the pre-installed ones run 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 is not slow or sluggish, then one or a couple of the third-party apps is causing the issue and you need to find that one and uninstall it.

  3. Third solution: Wipe the cache partition.


    Since performance-related issues are often caused by a firmware problem, the best thing that you can do is to wipe the cache partition of your phone. These are temporary files and data saved in the system that makes the device run smoothly every time you use it. So, if these files are corrupted there's a possibility your device will function poorly. 

    To delete the cache partition of your Galaxy A73, follow these steps:

    1. Turn off the device.
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power keys.
    3. When the Galaxy A73 logo shows, release all three keys.
    4. Your Galaxy A73 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 is still sluggish. If so, then move to the next method.

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


    As long as the device hasn't dropped or has a hardware issue, then doing a reset on your phone will fix any firmware-related problems. But before you do a reset, make sure to backup your important files and data because all will be deleted.

    So, after the backup and your Samsung Galaxy A73 is ready, follow these steps:

    1. Turn off the device.
    2. Press and hold the Volume Up and Power keys.
    3. When the Galaxy A73 logo shows, release all three keys.
    4. Your Galaxy A73 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.

    After the reboot, you will need to set up your phone to be able to use it again and it should work normally after that.
