Best Ways to Speed up your Android Smartphone
Are you thinking about how to improve the performance of your Android Smartphone to play or reduce battery consumption when it is idle? This is possible by changing the frequency and behavior of the processor cores.
The solution can be carried out by overclocking, overclocking, or OC, which means altering the operating frequencies originally set by the manufacturer of a component, to obtain greater performance.

Get your mobile to go faster
By increasing the processor’s working frequency, the mobile is proportionally faster since it can carry out more operations per second, which can be ideal for older smartphones that are affected by the performance of time.
The danger of overclocking comes from the fact that a minimal increase in the CPU working frequency is associated with an increase in the working temperature of the phone. This increase in temperature can burn the processor leaving it useless.
Raising the frequency of the mobile processor must be done very little by little and at all times monitoring the temperature of the terminal until achieving a balance point in which the performance improvement is achieved but maintaining the temperature at an acceptable level.
How to change the processor frequency
To change the frequency of the processor of your mobile two essential requirements are necessary: being a root user on the smartphone and installing a control app with which to modify the base frequencies of the CPU of the phone.
Once root permissions are available, you only need an interface to graphically control the processor frequencies. There are many alternatives, and even some cooked ROMs include a kernel that allows the configuration of the processor frequency from within the settings menus.
Controls the behavior of the processor
The processor adjusts the frequency of the cores based on the workload it receives and is controlled by a CPU Governor.
This component of the processor of any smartphone uses a series of behavior profiles with which it is established when the cores have to lower the frequency when the mobile is at rest, which cores can be deactivated to save battery or when it is time to put to work, at what frequency should each of the cores depending on the workload.
Originally, the Governor will always be configured to use an OnDemand profile, which adjusts the processor frequency based on the workload it receives. But any other can be assigned to behave differently.
The most common and recommended Governor profiles
With which good fluidity of use is achieved, maintaining a moderate energy consumption.
Conservative: As its name suggests, its maxim is to save energy, which is why the mobile phone slows down since the cores will work with a very tight frequency.
It is the default profile of Android obtaining a great balance between good power under workload, and reduced consumption at rest.
Ideal for those who seek maximum performance at all times since with this profile the processor will always work at the limit of its capacity, without taking energy consumption into account. With this profile, you have to be especially careful with the temperature since the processor could heat up more than recommended.
This is ideal if you only want to modify the processor frequency to obtain the maximum performance in a game or an application, but then if you want to return to the usual operating mode, just by restarting the mobile everything will return to its original configuration.
