Causes of Phone Lock
As smartphones are equivalent to laptop computers, many people use them as such, forgetting that they have their own limitations. When using the smartphone beyond your limits, you cause a “breakdown” in the system through the overload, resulting in locking and possible restart of the system. Some causes for the phone lock most common are:
- Run multiple applications or tasks at the same time
- Install many applications in phone memory instead of external memory (microSD card)
- Keep the internal memory (RAM) always full, with processes running in the background
- Leave the external memory full
- Use heavy themes for the unit in standby mode (e.g. wallpapers like 3D animations)
- Do not delete cookies, cache, log files
- Install other applications
- Run heavy applications with low memory
How Do I Prevent My Phone Lock?
Some solutions are simple to adopt in order to prevent the phone lock or reboot
Always install applications and other data on external memory (memory card), if the internal memory is very low, so that any application is always carried out externe memory and will have space to store temporary data in the internal memory. So, you can run multiple applications at the same time, no hassles, according to Allcitycodes.com.
Uninstall unnecessary applications when you no longer use them for some time, since they will occupy memory unnecessarily. You can install them again through its app store or through a backup of your phone.
Keep only the topics that you are currently using and remove the rest of them to your smartphone. Doing this will not only free up memory, but will also speed up your phone. Preferably, use wallpaper to solid colors, as a way of not making the wallpaper lock the phone.
Never run applications that do not seem compatible with the phone. Compatibility is presented at the time of installation, and if it is not compatible with your appliance, do not attempt to be installing with gambiarras.
Release memory erasing or moving music, books, videos, applications, wallpapers, pictures, old messages, contacts, and files that are not in use for a long time for the computer or applications in the cloud. Re-import the information and files where necessary.
Never turn heavy applications if the smartphone does not have enough RAM (internal memory). For example, games with 3D graphics heavy, they might not run on most basic phones, with less than 1 GB of RAM, and games lock smartphones with frequency.
Shut down the processes that are in the background when running a heavy application. Smartphone operating systems has task managers, or you can use a task manager application.
Install an antivirus on your cell phone because if your device is infected with virus. These applications also uninstall cookies, personal information, memory caches and more.
If you are using a cheap cell phone, make sure you do not run multiple applications at the same time.
While browsing the internet, do not open multiple tabs or perform other tasks, because it decreases the speed of the processor and RAM intensive.
Clean the external and internal memory of your cell phone, MP3 and other files you’re using too much.
Always keep your operating system updated. In the case of Apple’s smartphones, we do not recommend that you update your operating system, or you run the risk of leaving your cell phone inoperable.
