Finally, you can also make Android faster without root by resetting to factory settings. If all the previous tips failed, it is a case of considering going back to the factory settings of your device, and “resetting” everything on Android. Important to remember, that a factory reset will remove all data from the phone.

While all data stored in your Google Account will be restored, other apps and their associated data will be uninstalled. Before performing a factory data reset, it is better to back up your phone.

With these tips, you can make Android faster on your mobile device without rooting the phone. Before making any changes, it is always good to make a backup copy on another device, for example, the computer. Good luck
