Troubleshoot your smartphone for App Crashing,Slowness and Lags- Android

HOW AND WHEN TO RESET

Like it is with the iPhone, sometimes a simple restarting of your Android handset can take care of the operating glitch in your device.

In case restarting the phone doesn't solve your problem, or if the device has become unresponsive, simply remove the back cover and take out the battery. Wait for a few minutes before putting it back and restarting the phone.

If this still doesn't solve the problem, you can reset your phone to default settings. To do this, go to Settings > Backup & reset > Factory data reset > Reset phone.

Unfortunately, given the fact that different companies use different user interfaces on their phones, on some Android devices you may find this option under Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset.

Doing a factory reset will delete your data and apps from the phone, so it's always a good idea to have it all backed up before erasing everything.

If your phone has become unresponsive and restarting it or a software reset doesn't help, you can try a hard reset by simultaneously pressing a combination of buttons on your handset Volume Up + Power + Home button,
or Hold the Volume Down + Power button for several seconds.

If you are not sure about the key combination for your device, look it up on the web, or call your service centre.

Once your phone is in recovery mode, use Volume Up and Volume Down to navigate on the screen.

Select Factory Reset and click ok through the home button (Samsung phones) or the power button (stock Android). All your personal data will be deleted.

HOW TO BACK UP CONTACTS, MESSAGES AND APPS 

BACKUP TO GOOGLE CLOUD: To backup your app settings, Wi-Fi passwords, contacts, etc, to Google servers, go to Settings > Backup & reset > Back up my data.

GOOGLE ACCOUNT: Go to Settings > Accounts > Google. There, click on the account name. Select what you want to sync, and you're done. In fact, once you have saved your contacts to your Google account, you can access them on Android, Windows Phone, BB10 and iOS devices. If you've installed the Google+ app, you can turn on auto upload in it to backup any picture you click with the phone in real time.

G CLOUD BACKUP: This is a third-party utility that backs up the data from your Android phone to web servers. After installing the app, you will have to create an account with G Cloud before you can start backing up your contacts, messages, photos and music. Every user gets 8GB of free cloud storage.

Download: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com. genie9. gcloudbackup&hl=en Samsung and HTC have programs like Kies and Sync Manager respectively—downloadable from their web sites—that will let you back up your phone data to your PC.

HOW TO RESTORE YOUR PHONE 

Restoring an Android phone depends on where you have backed up your data. If you had saved your contacts to your Google account, all you have to do is add your account while setting up the device, and select Auto sync. If you had used some app to back up the data, you can use the same app to restore it back onto your existing or new phone.
