    Often times phones will get so clogged up with apps and other data that they start to force close whenever you try to do something. They can also become unbearably slow to do just about anything. You more than likely have something running in the background that is causing your phone's memory to get chewed up. The problem is, it's difficult to determine what exactly is causing that problem.

    Here's how to solve those force closing issues...

    If using Android 4.0 or greater (Like the Galaxy SIII/S4, HTC One, Motorola Droid Razr, etc):

    Apps:


    1. Go to Menu > Settings > Application Manager
    2. Uninstall any apps you do not use
    3. If the problem recently started happening, uninstall anything you installed recently. There may be a conflict with your phone or another app. Perhaps the app is coded incorrectly.
    4. Check to make sure you don't have some kind of adware installed - try Trustgo Security


    Memory


    1. Hold down your home button to get the the Task Manager (if you don't have a task manager app, download one like this)
    2. Select the RAM tab at the top
    3. Clear memory *If you are completely out of memory this may be a reason your phone is slow


    Storage

    1. Under the Task Manager choose the Storage tab and see how much space you have left (you can also see this under Menu > Settings > Storage)
    2. If you have no space left on the device or SD card, either:
      1. transfer files to your computer by plugging in your phone in using a usb cable
      2. use a sd card reader to transfer files off of the sd card to your computer
      3. Use a file manager app to find large files and remove them

    3. Go to your text messages - clear them.
    4. Go to your emails - clear them


    *Before removing anything you may want to back things up with an app like G Cloud

    If all else fails... Do a factory reset

    1. Backup all of your data using an app like G Cloud
    2. Go to Menu > Settings > Back up and reset > Factory Data Reset
    3. Wait for your phone to reset
    4. Re-load the backup program you used
    5. Restore your backup


    *You may have to re-download any Android updates that you installed.

    If you are still seeing a lot of slowness and force closing you may have a hardware problem and should consider purchasing a new phone!

    If the phone is slow than you should uninstall the app that is not useful or you didn't use it. The other way is to factory restore your phone it will very helpful for you.
