Everybody hates a slow-working phone.
Using it can sometimes be so frustrating that you’ll feel like smashing it against the wall. We all know that feeling. You spend so much time doing one thing just because your phone’s performance is rather slow. It lags, stutters, and ultimately crashes. When this happens, the usual culprit is not enough RAM. So how can you increase RAM in your Android phone? Or can you?
Let’s find out…
But first: what is RAM?
It’s short for Random Access Memory. Basically, it is where your device stores some stuff as you’re using them or when it’s performing or doing something. For instance, when you’re using a particular app and doing something with it, it is stored in the RAM for the meantime. Simply put, it’s the memory that lets you run apps in your device.
That is why…
The more RAM your phone has, the more it can do at the same time. You can have more apps running or keep more tabs in the browser open at the same time. It allows your phone to multi-task without lagging or crashing.
Another example…
If you’re using high-performance apps or playing HD games, you will need to have enough RAM on your phone. That and a decent processor.
Despite the importance of RAM, many users still tend to overlook it whenever they’re buying a new Android device. It’s one of the most essential features of a smartphone. Even if your phone has a top-notch processor, it still won’t be as great if you don’t have enough RAM.
The good thing is…
Many Android devices now have enough RAM. However, budget Android tablets and smartphones or older devices still don’t come with decent RAM.
But there’s a way for you to maximize your phone’s RAM. It may not be as simple as sticking in external storage or SD cards, but it’s pretty doable and possible.
Hence, we are going to show you how to increase RAM in Android phone devices.


Method 1: Increasing RAM Using Micro SD Card (For Rooted Device)This is quite a risky way to increase your smartphone’s RAM. It’s free and is designed for rooted Android smartphones and devices.
But before we proceed with the steps, let us first make a checklist of what you’ll need:
A class 4 or higher class micro SD Card.
SD card reader
A rooted Android phone/tablet
Windows-operated PC
If you’ve prepared all these, let’s proceed…

Check if your Android device supports swappingThis is very crucial. It’s highly important that you check, if not double-check if your Android smartphone or device supports swapping.

To do this, you can install the app MemoryInfo & Swapfile Check. ( available in playstore for free )

Sectionalize the micro SD Card[Image: increase-ram-using-micro-sd-card-e1576868173322.png]Make partitions
The micro SD card will be used as secondary memory. To sectionalize the card, you’ll need an app or a tool that lets you partition your card. You can use the Mini Tool Partition Wizard for this.
To start making partitions, insert your micro SD card to the card reader and connect it with your PC. From there, you can make internal partitions of the card.
But for you to do this, you need to download and install the Mini Tool Partition Wizard in your PC. Once installed, open this tool and format the SD card you’ve inserted.
Now you can make partitions by right-clicking on the SD card. For a card with more than 4GB, select the partition as primary. The select file system as FAT32. For the next partition, allot around or at least 1GB. Click “Done.”
Again, right-click on it to make a partition. Select primary partition. But this time, change the file system. Instead of FAT32, make it EXT2, EXT3, or EXT4, accordingly.
To complete partition, click “Apply all the changes.”

Link micro SD Card with Android device[Image: link2sd-169x300.png]Link micro SD Card
Once you have partitioned your micro SD Card, the next step is to link it with your rooted smartphone or device. To do this, you’ll need to download Link2SD.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, launch it and give root permission. Choose “.ext” partition and link your Android device to the micro SD Card.

Increase the RAMFor the final step, you’ll need to download another app. This time, a root swapper.

Download (Root) Swapper and select the increase you need. This will create a .swp file, thereby increasing the RAM of your phone. You can also use this app to track SWAP memory usage and change storage preference.

Method 2: Smart Booster (No Root)If you want to boost your phone’s performance and accelerate its RAM without root access, the Smart Booster will help you do the trick. It’s a very light third-party app that does a decent job at speeding up your device.
Download and Install Smart BoosterDownload and install the Smart Booster app on your Android device.

This light optimization tool allows you to boost your device in 5 ways:
Auto-boost (automatic and in timing conditions)
Overlay widget (on by default)
Home screen widget (one tap to boost from the home screen)
Notification bar (one tap to boost from a toggle notification bar)
Boost Now (tap from the app’s main screen)
You can get the app through the Google Play button below.

Select Boost Level[Image: smart-booster-increase-ram-clean-cache-175x300.png]
The app features 4 auto-boost levels, depending on how much you’ll want to speed up your device. They are as follows:
Aggressive- this level effectively kills most low-priority apps.
Strong- this kills apps marked as low-priority and some that are slightly below “average”.
Medium- this kills apps that consume above “average” memory.
Gentle- this only kills apps that use a considerable memory.
If you want to really boost your phone’s performance, choose the aggressive level. However, this will also kill most of the apps.
Use advanced application manager[Image: smart-booster-advanced-application-manager-159x300.png]Manage apps better
With this feature, you will be able to manage your apps accordingly. You can use this to do the following:
Disable system apps
Hibernate rarely-used apps.
Recommend which apps to move to your SD card.
Easily backup or uninstall apps.
Manage .apk files.
Scan auto-start apps.
Manually increase RAMIf you want to manually increase RAM in Android phone devices, simply click on Boost Now or use the Boost button in your notification bar. This will kill several processes and your device should instantly feel faster.
Other features include a one-tap cache cleaner and a quick SD card cleaner.
Method 3: Maximize RAM Capacity (For Non-Rooted Device)Unfortunately, for non-rooted devices, you cannot just simply add more RAM memory. In this method, you’re not really increasing your phone’s RAM. It’s more about preserving your RAM’s memory and making the most of what you’ve got.
To reiterate, the more your Android smartphone or device is doing, the more RAM it’s using. So if you want to make the most of your RAM, make sure that you free up the memory by reducing what’s running to prioritize more important tasks.
Here are some of the things you can do to maximize your phone’s RAM.
Limit widgetsYou may not know it, but widgets can actually take more RAM space. They occupy bandwidth and many often refresh. Some of them are continuously active, which means that they’re always occupying a portion of your RAM. The same is true with live wallpapers.
Not only do live wallpapers and widgets take RAM space. They also drain your battery faster.
That’s why… you need to reassess the widgets and live wallpapers you’re currently using. Make sure that you’re keeping just the important ones. That way, you’ll free up space and optimize your phone’s RAM.
Force stop appsSometimes swiping apps will temporarily do the trick. Other times, it doesn’t. If swiping apps and limiting widgets or live wallpapers still don’t significantly improve your phone’s performance, you might need to take it to the next step: manually close the apps.
To do this, first you need to go to Settings>Apps. Tap on a particular app to check how much RAM it’s using. If it’s taking up too much space, you can force stop it. Tap Force Stop and confirm your action.
Uninstall appsHowever, if you feel like you’re not using the app that much or if you can live without it, then you can just uninstall to make space for more important ones. Sometimes, you can just see the Uninstall button when you tap on the app.
But there are apps which you can’t just easily tap Uninstall. For such apps, you will need to remove their “advanced rights.” To do this go to Settings>Security>Device admin apps. Just uncheck the box that appears next to a particular app. Then uninstall.
Note: Some Android devices, like Samsung smartphones, allow users to see an overview of RAM usage. With this, you can see which apps are taking up too much space or which ones are causing the trouble. To check, just go to Settings>Device maintenance>Memory.


ENJOYY GUYS !!! :fiesta: :fiesta: :fiesta: :fiesta:
