When you first get your brand new Android phone, it runs so smooth. You’re mesmerized by how responsive it is. Then a few months go by. Suddenly you have to tap things twice for it to respond. Apps now take forever to load. What happened? Why is it running so slow? There could be a few reasons.
If you wish to save space in your phone’s internal memory, moving apps to the SD card is an excellent way to free some space. You can move apps to the SD card by going to Settings > Applications, selecting the application, then tapping the “Move to SD card” button. You may notice that for some apps, this option is grayed out though. Why is that?
We’ve all had that stubborn app that just won’t work. Android users are constantly greeted with that “The applications has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.” message when you need to use the app most.

A factory reset will set your Android back to its default state. The process, also known as a “hard” or “master” reset, will erase data from the device and set the Android OS back to default settings.
