Internet connection does not always work as it should. One of the most annoying problems, especially on smartphones, is when the device does not load web pages quickly. Yet all is not lost. On Android, you can try to solve the problem with a few quick tricks.
Before going on to talk about these tricks, it is good to immediately clear something. It is not about anything complicated. Anyone, even those who are unfamiliar with the Android, can put into practice the advice that we will explain shortly. But why is the internet sometimes very slow? There are really many reasons. It may happen, for example, that the problem is caused by an application that “eats” a lot of mobile data or occupies so much internet bandwidth. And not only. It is also possible that the reason is to be found in the smartphone’s network settings.
That said, let’s move on to action. To start, turn off the Wi-Fi network of your Android smartphone. In fact, we are interested in speeding up the data connection, which you will obviously need to activate. Now we are ready to start.
Let’s get rid of the cache
As is known, all smartphone applications accumulate over time of the cache, information used by the phone to start some functions more quickly. Well, the cache can also slow down the internet connection of the mobile device. In these cases, it is advisable to delete it. Do not know how to do it? It’s very simple.
Open the Android settings and then click on “App”. At this point, from the list of applications installed on the smartphone, identify those that are normally used more frequently. For example, browsers. Now, click on “Memory” and then on “Clear cache” and you’re done.
Check the mobile network settings
As told earlier, it is possible that for various reasons the mobile network settings are wrong. A 4G phone could be “set” to use only 3G. Let’s see how to check. Also in this case, it is necessary to go to the settings. Next, click on “Mobile Network” and then on “Preferred Network Type”. Finally, make sure the “4G/3G/2G automatic” option is active. That’s all.
Delete unnecessary apps and widgets
It is good that you know one thing: almost all the apps, even those that seem closed to you, in the background consume a part of the mobile network. Leaving aside the aspect related to data traffic that is likely to be drained in advance, these applications also slow down the Internet. If you do not use them, there’s no reason to keep them on your smartphone: delete them. To do this, go to the settings of the green robot – now you know how to do it – click on “App” and select the “program” to be deleted. Now you just have to press on “Uninstall”.
Find a valid ad-blocking
If the Internet connection of the smartphone is slow, the fault could be advertisements, which slow down the loading of pages, occupy and consume Internet data. The solution could be to download a valid ad-blocking from the Google store, a tool that blocks, as its name also says, the adverts.
If you, like most Android users, use Chrome, you could try optimizing your Google browser. How? it is sufficient to activate the “Data saving” which, in addition to saving a few gigabytes, will speed up the loading of the pages. Open Chrome and click on “Settings”. After doing this, press on Data Savings and finally turn on the “On” option.
