DELETE UNWANTED AND UNUSED DATABASE OR FILES:
Many-a-time the memory of our phones is filled with data and files (songs, images, videos, and applications) that we do not use actively or at all. These files and data occupy unnecessary space in our phones and hover and pile over on the RAM and effects its efficient and smooth function. By deleting all such data, files, and applications, we can not only reduce the operational stress from the RAM but can also increase the memory of our phone.
CLEAR CACHES AND COOKIES:
Whenever we use the internet or visit any website, our phone automatically records the surfing data and caches from it.

Clearing the cache and cookies from the phone can be of great help when aiming to save your android smartphone from hanging or freezing. The easiest way to clear the cache of all apps is to boot the phone into recovery mode using the proper key combination and then navigate to ‘clear cache’ and confirm it to clear the cache of all apps.
