We at Samsung Techwin understand how frustrating it can be to have a slow computer or tablet.

Simple tasks like switching between apps or swiping through photos become frustrating and unappealing.

Your tablet may slow down over time, but this does not necessitate the purchase of a new one.

Tablets aren’t used as frequently as smartphones, so these useful devices can last for quite some time.

Even the toughest tablet isn’t invincible, and you may notice a drop in performance after a while.

We’ll go over a few tips and tricks to try if your tablet is running slowly.

Quick Fix: If your tablet is running slowly, try checking for updates, closing apps, and deleting unnecessary media.

If everything else fails, you might need to perform a factory reset.

What’s the deal with my tablet’s sluggish performance?

True, malware can infiltrate your tablet and slow it down, but this isn’t the only factor that can cause a lag.

We use our tablets for a variety of purposes, such as quickly checking email, taking photos, scrolling through Facebook, and playing games.

Each of these necessitates a small amount of memory on your tablet.

After a while, the memory that normally keeps your device running quickly becomes clogged up with apps and services.

Because of the clogged memory, your tablet may run very slowly.

We are frequently asked if we have a FixMeStick for tablets. Unfortunately, we do not, which is why we wanted to provide you with some helpful cleaning tips for your tablet so it can run like new again.

Samsung Techwin Tip: To remove hidden viruses on your computer, use a FixMeStick. However, keep in mind that it will not work on your tablet.

The best way to fix a slow Galaxy Tab A | How to increase performance

In terms of slow performance, there are a variety of factors that can play a role in this.

You may find this troubleshooting guide to be of assistance if you’re trying to figure out why or how to fix your Galaxy Tab A that’s running slowly at the moment.

Take a look at the solutions we’ve provided below to see if there’s anything we can do to help you out.

8 Ways To Speed Up Your Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablet

Method 1: Visually inspect the memory

Poor memory management is one of the most common causes of slow performance issues on Android devices.

According to theory, the Android Operating System is supposed to manage RAM on the fly, but in practice, this does not always occur.

When RAM is running low, it is possible that problems will arise.

The resulting problem is frequently manifested as a device’s slowing down.

Perhaps all that is necessary to resolve the issue is simply to clear the RAM on your device if nothing else has been done since you first noticed it.  

Having a large number of applications running at the same time can cause a system to become sluggish. We recommend that you first try to close any open applications.

If you’ve been using resource-intensive applications such as games or video streaming software, try to shut them down first.

To close an app on the Galaxy Tab A, follow these steps:

1. Press the Recent Apps soft key on your keyboard.

This is the one on the far left-hand side of the screen.

2. Select the app you want to close by swiping left or right from the home screen.

3. To close it, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

If you want to simply close all applications, you can do so as follows:

1. Press the Recent Apps soft key on your keyboard.

This is the one on the far left-hand side of the screen.

2. Click on the Close All button at the bottom of the screen to exit the program.

If you prefer, you can use the Optimize Now option to clear the RAM and perform a general system checkup instead of using the Clean Now option.

Here’s how to go about it:

1. Launch the Settings application.

2. Select Device care from the drop-down menu.

3. Select Optimize now from the drop-down menu.

4. After the tablet has finished optimizing, click Done at the bottom of the screen.

Method 2: To free up space, remove all unnecessary and unused apps.

Examine the list of installed apps – if you aren’t using some of them on a regular basis, or if you simply have too many, think about which apps you don’t need or use and uninstall them.

How to delete apps
  • Check to see which apps are taking up the most space.

Follow these steps if you’re using an Android tablet to see a list of everything installed on your device and how much space each one takes up: Apps can be found in Settings.

  • If you have an iPad, open the Settings app and then follow the steps below. Select General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage from the drop-down menu.

Consider moving your apps to an external memory card before uninstalling them to ensure that everything is backed up while still improving your tablet’s performance.

More information about the importance of backing up your digital assets can be found here.

Method 3: Check back for updates.

Smartphone and tablet manufacturers release software updates on a regular basis to help keep devices running smoothly.

These updates do not always affect speed, but they do occasionally fix bugs and other issues that may stymie your tablet’s performance.

To check for updates, open your tablet’s settings, navigate to “About Device” or a similar option, and tap the software update button.

If an update is available, ensure that you are connected to a wireless network before proceeding.

Method 4: Download and install the most recent software and app updates.

Cybercriminals attack your devices and steal your personal information by exploiting flaws in software and apps.

Software and app updates are critical because they are designed to address these flaws.

Install them right away to keep your devices safe from viruses that could slow you down.

Updates frequently require you to restart your device, which helps to speed things up by clearing cached data, closing background apps, and freeing up your tablet’s processor and RAM resources.

  • Download and install the most recent software and app updates.

Method 5: Let’s Back To Basic- Restart the device.

If your Galaxy Tab A still runs slowly after you’ve optimized it, restart it.

This method may be effective if the source of the problem is a temporary bug that developed after leaving a device running for an extended period of time.

Attempt a normal restart first by pressing the Power button to access the boot menu.

Then, choose the Restart option and see if it works.

Another way to restart the device is to press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds, or until the device’s screen turns on.

This simulates the effect of removing the battery from the device. If this works, the device may be unlocked.

If the standard restart doesn’t work, try this:

  • Press and hold the Volume Down button for a few seconds before releasing it.
  • Press and hold the Power key while holding it down.
  • 10 seconds is enough to hold the power
  • The second and third restart procedures attempt to mimic the effects of removing the battery pack.
  • Disconnecting the battery on older devices is frequently an effective way of repairing unresponsive devices. If nothing has changed, move on to the next suggestions.

It can be beneficial to reboot your device at least once a week.

If you have a habit of forgetting things, we recommend that you set your phone to reboot on its own.

You can program it to perform this task by following these steps:

  • Launch the Settings app.
  • Select Device Care.
  • Tap the 3-dot at the top of the screen.
  • Choose Auto restart.

Method 6: Delete the cache partition

If there is a problem with the system cache, some Galaxy devices may reboot on their own.

Follow the steps below to see if you have a system cache problem:

Turn the device off.

This is critical. You’ll never be able to boot into Recovery Mode if you can’t turn it off.

If you are unable to turn off the device on a regular basis using the Power button, wait until the phone’s battery is depleted.

  • After that, charge the phone for 30 minutes before entering Recovery Mode.
  • For 5 seconds, press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons simultaneously.
  • Remove your finger from the Power and Volume Up buttons.
  • The menu for the Recovery screen will now appear.
  • Use the Volume Down button until the ‘Wipe cache partition option is highlighted.
  • Select ‘Wipe cache partition’ by pressing the Power button.
  • To highlight Yes, use Volume Down.
  • To proceed with the cache partition clearing, press the Power button.
  • After you’ve cleared the cache partition, press the Power button once more to reboot the system.

Method 7: Install an antivirus program on your tablet.

Many people are unaware that malware and viruses can also harm your tablet.

Malicious programs may not only slow down your tablet, but they may also steal from you if you have an Android device or an iPad.

McAfee Total Protection is a great antivirus because it works on PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones.

Method 8: Maintain a Clean Screen

As dust and fingerprints accumulate on your screen, the touch screen becomes less responsive to your commands, which can be extremely frustrating.

Simply wiping your screen will solve this problem.  

2 Ways To Simply Fix This Slow Performance Issue

Method 1: How to Perform a Hard Reset on a Samsung Galaxy Tab A Using the Settings Menu

Under normal circumstances, the factory reset option in the Settings menu should be your first choice.

It is easier to do and does not require the pressing of hardware buttons, which some users may find difficult.

Make a backup of your personal information and deactivate your Google account.
Launch the Settings app.
Scroll down to General management and tap it.
Tap the Reset button.
Choose Factory data reset from the list of options.
Read the information and then tap Reset to proceed.
To confirm the action, tap Delete All.

Method 2: Seek assistance from Samsung.

If your Galaxy Tab A still runs slowly after a factory reset, you should suspect that there is a more serious issue at hand.

It could be a hardware issue or something deep within the software.

In either case, you should let Samsung handle the situation.

For assistance, go to your nearest Samsung store or Service Center.
