How to increase the device RAM – No Root

Now if you are not willing to Root your Android device, I will show you how to save space on RAM to increase productivity. I will be explain you some tips for non-rooted Android devices. With these kind of non-Rooted Android devices we help you to make use of the whole RAM that you get with the device, even if it is not possible to magically obtain extra memory like with rooted Android device. Always keep in mind, the more your device is working is the more the RAM is being used. So the basic is, if you can reduce the things running on the device then you can free up more memory for the tasks that you really care about.

Limit widgets and live wallpapers

The widgets and live wallpapers both are for sure going to eat up the space on your RAM. Most of the Widgets and Live wallpapers are refreshed often and while some are continuously active all the day. This also cause your battery to drain faster. So make sure you always limit the number of widgets and get rid with live wallpaper to optimize your current RAM space and increase productivity.

Disable Applications

Some of the Apps consume the RAM when they are not even in use, by this your RAM is unnecessarily consumed without any usage. You can prevent from this by organizing which apps should and shouldn’t perform in the background, this is really worth it to massively improve your smartphone performance.

That is simple to disable an application, go to Settings and then Apps or Application Manager and select the all tab, this will get you the list of all the Apps that are currently installed on your device. You just have to tap on an App and then tap Disable and Confirm to disable it. But one thing important is just be careful here, that you should not disable everything and anything that is important for the system. If something you does wrong here you could end up with an unstable device. You should have understood and specific App before you disable it, but most of Apps that was not pre-installed on your device are safe to disable and even it is worth to totally delete if anything that you will never use.

I hope this little piece will definitely help you to enhance your device performance. That’s all I wanted share about expanding your RAM, I guess this might really useful for you guys, let me know through the comment section, if anything else that you know that can provide a solution for this issue.
