Huawei has managed to cram a good amount of tech into this sleek and slim device, which measures just over 6mm in width. Inside the aluminium alloy frame is a quad-core processor, so multi-tasking should be stutter free and there’s an 8 megapixel snapper on the back. In terms of screen real-estate, you’re looking at a 4.7 inch display, covered in the super durable Gorilla Glass with a very respectable 312 ppi. Another bonus is that it’s running the very latest version of Android, Jelly Bean 4.2.2; however it is skinned with Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6 interface so no vanilla Android here. The Huawei Ascend P6 is the slimmest phone in the world, at the time of writing. It’s just 6.2mm thick, and that is without doubt the most striking feature of the phone. Screen quality is great. It uses an IPS panel, which provides natural-looking colours, strong top brightness and good angled viewing.

2 ways to solve Android slowdown

Android being an open and most useful Operating System has grown its footprint over a lot of devices. The power of Android to get installed on a device with only 256 MB RAM and play swiftly on a 2 GB RAM is also the root of some problems that most users face. Today, we have compiled 2 most common Android problems and the answer to the same.

1. Slow Lagging Interface

This is the most common problem faced by most Android devices. Low to Medium end Android users have to deal with android slow down issues more often. You phone or tablet becomes sluggish. Did you ever notice how long it takes to make a call on your sluggy Android Device. But, I bet it was not that slow when you bought it. The reasons are numerous and the ways to rectify that are numerous as well. So, how to speed up your Android?

App Data: Most commonly used apps like Facebook, Whatsapp etc store a lot of cache files. Low end Android devices do not have much internal memory and keeping your device’s internal memory free helps keep your phone fast. Take some time to clear your app cache and app data every week. Although, there are free tools like Clean Master that promise to clear your app cache, they do not clear your app data. This has to be cleared manually. The down sides are that you may have to input your credentials into Facebook or the other app every time your clear the app data. But, it is worth it. It makes your phone way faster.

Clear your App Cache by going to Settings-> Apps-> Browse to the particular apps-> Clear Data and get a fast Android experience.

 

The above screenshots show how I freed 41 MB from my Facebook App data.

2. Choose better way to uninstall apps

With lots of new apps and games coming to the Play Store everyday, it is pretty impossible for one to stay away from installing and trying out a few. After all, what use is an Android device of if you are unable to test and try out new apps and games. And yes, if you do not like an app, we straight away uninstall it. Now, every time we install and uninstall an app, some residual files from the apps remain behind. The normal way to uninstall is from settings or from another app but neither of them clear up the left behind files. After a certain amount of time, many left over files from many uninstalled apps clutter over and decreases the storage space of your phone. Eventually, you are unable to install new apps and your phone becomes sluggish as well.

To get rid of this problem, use Clean Master App Manager. The Clean Master App Manager uninstalls an app and checks for any empty folders or files leftover by the app. Once the app is uninstalled, it asks you permission to delete the left over files.

More ways?? Yes there are. We will compile more articles and we will revert back.
