When your phone starts to become laggy when opening or using apps, the problem can be with the firmware, or the apps that you’re trying to use. Performance issues are often pretty annoying but they’re not really that serious.
The fact is that you can easily fix performance issues as long as you’re willing to spend a little time troubleshooting your phone. All you need to do is some basic procedures to retain the performance of your device. So if you’re one of the users that’s bugged by this issue, here are the things you should do:
First solution: Close all apps running in the background
More often than not, apps that are left running in the background can cause the phone to start running so slowly, especially if there are already a bunch of them using your phone’s CPU and RAM.
So the first thing you have to do is to hit the Recent Apps key to view the applications that are left running in the background.
After that, tap Close All to force stop all of them in one tap. Once you’ve done that, observe your phone closely to know if it’s still too laggy or sluggish when you use or open apps.
Second solution: Force restart your phone
Another thing you have to do if the problem continues after doing the first solution is the forced restart. What it does is basically refresh your phone’s memory as well as release the CPU and RAM and background services are using.
If the cause of the problem is some services, then this procedure will fix it. Here’s how you do it:
- Press and hold the volume down and power keys for at least 8 seconds.
- Your phone will power down and turn back up, so when the logo shows, release both keys and allow the device to continue the boot process.
Once the reboot is finished, try to see if your phone is now running smoothly.
Third solution: Reset all settings on your phone
Resetting the settings of your device will bring all the configuration back to their default values but this won’t delete any of your important files and data. However, it will also erase all the wireless connections in your phone, as well as change your wallpaper. But when it comes to effectiveness, you can rest assured that this will fix a problem like this.
This reset can be found under the Settings menu together with other reset options. You don’t have to create a backup of your files and data if you’re doing this reset, and you will not be prompted to enter your Google ID after doing it.
So try resetting the settings and see if your Galaxy A32 works smoothly after that.
Fourth solution: Factory reset your phone
Lastly, if the problem continues to bug you after doing the previous solutions, then you have no other choice but to reset your phone. A reset will fix any performance-related problems like this. However, you will have to spend some time creating a backup of the things you don’t want to lose as your files and data will be deleted if you do the factory reset.
And after the process, you will be prompted to set up your phone again and enter your Google ID and password. However, we suggest you try doing the reset through the Settings menu as it’s safer and easy to do. You can also do the reset via the Recovery Mode but you have to make sure you know your Google ID and password.
And that’s pretty much it! We hope that we can help you with this troubleshooting guide.
