How to increase the RAM on Android?

Sometimes, owners of devices on Android can face such a problem as its constant “hang-up” and slow work. It is clear that it is impossible to increase the physical amount of RAM on Android.

However, it is possible to optimize the existing one, and we will present several proven ways to do this.

Disabling applications

The first way is to optimize existing running applications. All you need is to go to the System Settings menu, select Applications, then Use Memory. It clearly shows how RAM memory is used, which operating applications are functioning - downloaded by the user or placed on the memory card.

The value of RAM can be at a minimum, or even zero. In this case, select those applications that you do not use. Click on the name of a specific application, and in the window that opens, select "disable" or "stop".

Remove unwanted applications

Existing unnecessary applications can be stopped. However, after restarting the system, they will work again, and you will have to turn them off. Instead, you can completely remove such applications from your smartphone or tablet. This will directly increase the RAM on Android.

By the way, it is impossible to delete standard applications loaded initially on a memory card without any special features. To do this, you need to download a special program that will allow you to get administrator rights on the Android device.

Optimization due to the paging file

Finally, you can optimize RAM by installing additional applications that create the page file. This file is located on the memory card or in the ROM. The paging file expands the amount of RAM. These applications include Swapit RAM Expander, Swappit 2, which are available for download at.

These methods will help to expand the free space for storing valuable information on your Android device.
