Is Your Android Device Freezing? Here Are Some Quick Solutions

How can you fix Android phone freezing issues? Here’s a good place to start.

Restart Your Device

If the screen is frozen and you can’t do anything, e.g., swipe the screen or exit out of your current app, you can restart the device by pressing and holding the Power button for about 30 seconds or when you see the screen restarting.

For Multiple Freezing Problems

Have an Android device that’s constantly freezing? You will need to troubleshoot. Here’s what you can do.

Clear Up and Free Storage Space

Freezing can be do to a full internal storage space. Free up cached data and remove unnecessary files by doing these steps:

Step 1. Open the Settings menu.
Step 2. Tap on Storage and see how much space you have available. If free space is less than 10%, your Android device can start acting up.
Step 3. Start deleting extra files and content, then restart your device.

Troubleshooting Further

Have you recently installed an app and now your Android is experiencing freezing issues?

Restart your device and go to Safe Mode by pressing and holding the Power button, then touching and holding the Power button on the screen. Tap OK and the device should go to Safe Mode.

Additionally, you can try to remove any apps you’re not using to clear the devices’ memory. Go to the Apps & Notifications section and Force Close any one that you don’t need.

If this works, then you can proceed by uninstalling recently downloaded apps until the problem goes away.

Reset To Factory Settings

If the solutions above doesn’t work, you can try to reset your Android device to its factory settings. Keep in mind that this essentially wipes all the data in the device clean, including personal photos and videos. So if possible, do a backup before resetting your device.
