Tips and tricks speed up performance on Samsung Galaxy A6s and A8s
1. Wipe cache partition
Throughout the time we use our phone, heaps of junk and cache files are gathered. These files are fetched by the applications that we have on our phone. These cache files turn to junk and unnecessary load after some time. And it keeps growing up and eventually impacts the overall performance, stability and general working of the phone.

3. Disable unwanted (unnecessary apps)
If you thoroughly observe your phone, you would find that there are many crappy applications that you’ve not touched yet. And the most annoying thing is that they come pre-installed on the phone. Samsung bloats their smartphones very well with tons of applications. Of course, many of them are helpful, however many remain unknown for us through the whole time.
Moreover, there are greater chances that many of these unnecessary apps would run in the background consuming both; battery life and power resources. Thus, for a better performance, it is highly suggested that you disable or remove all unwanted apps from your phone. In testing with Samsung Galaxy Note 9, we found that there were about 120+ bloatware apps. And once we disable these bloatware apps then, it would free about 1.5 GB RAM, that’s plenty.
So, we can expect some similar results on Samsung Galaxy A6s and A8s smartphones. Just follow the below steps to disable unwanted apps on your phone:
- Open Settings menu on your phone.
- Now, locate ‘Apps’ and open Apps list.
- Within the list, tap on the app that you want to disable.
- Next, tap on ‘Disable’ button.
- Repeat the same steps for other applications.
That’s how you can load off your phone from unwanted and unnecessary apps. While it improves the performance, it brings some extra free space for you. We are pretty sure that debloating these two smartphones will significantly improve the overall performance and stability of the phone.
4. Set custom animations for a snappier interface
Animations are all around the Android interface. Whether you step-in or just lock your phone, you would find that some animations happen. These animations have certain extent and duration. So, we can make actions and user interface a bit snappier if we cut-off extent and duration of these animations.
The Android OS allows users to customize animations through the Developer Options. This menu comes hidden by default. There’s a certain method to activate this menu. To enable Developer Options, just follow the below steps:
Once you’ve enabled this menu on your phone, you’re ready to go further and customize animations for better performance on your phone.
- Open Settings.
- Now, tap on Developer Options.
- Within this menu, tap on “Windows Animation Scale”, “Transition Animation scale” and “Animator duration scale”.
- Now, tap each entity and change the default value to 0.5X (i.e half of the current value).
- Exit the menu, and reboot your phone.
That’s it. After a boot up, you should notice that actions happen snappier. This improves the responsiveness that feels better performance.
5. Set custom DPI for smooth performance and better readability
Here’s one more thing that you could try using the Developer Options. You can set a custom value to DPI settings. Basically, DPI is linked to rendering process. While we change its value, it makes on-screen content like text and icons bigger and smaller. By default this value is set to some high values that keep text and icons small in size.
To improve readability and somewhat performance, we can reduce the default value of DPI to make on-screen content bigger. That will improve the readability and somewhat it makes things work smoother.
Here’s how you can change the DPI value on your phone:
- Open Settings.
- Now, tap on Developer Options.
- Under this menu, look for ‘smallest width’ or ‘minimum width’ entity and tap on it.
- Change the value to something lower than the default value.
- Exit the settings and reboot your phone.
It makes easier to read as text and icons become big. For rendering big things, less amount of GPU and CPU resources are required. That’s how it works.
