There are several reasons why a mobile can become slow. And although one of them is the wear and tear of RAM memory, as a general rule this takes years to happen. The problem are background processes running by mobiles and that on many occasions they end up producing errors that translate into slowness, errors when opening apps and running various processes.

And since factory resetting the mobile seems like too drastic a solution, the best of all is to restart the device with some frequency. and for it Samsung adds a setting that does it automatically so we don’t have to be aware of it. Apart from other things.

A simple action that makes your Galaxy ‘revive’

Surely on more than one occasion you have heard that, when faced with problems in an electronic device, someone responds with that of “Have you tried turning it off and on?”. And beyond the many jokes that he has given (and will give) this matter, there is some reason in it.

Devices such as mobiles run dozens of processes, even when they are blocked. Just because we don’t see them doesn’t mean they don’t exist. And in fact, they are necessary for the proper functioning of the terminal. The problem is when there are too many and for a long time, since they can cause the opposite effect and negatively affect performance.

So Samsung adds a setting that allows the mobile itself to detect when is the best time to restart, but without it being a problem. It will not turn off when you are using it, but at a time when it is completely locked, with no important processes running in the background, and after several minutes without you using it. To activate that option, you have to follow these steps:

Samsung Automatic Optimization

  • On your Galaxy mobile, open ‘Settings’.
  • Go to the ‘Maintenance and battery’ section.
  • Scroll down to the last section and select ‘Automatic optimization’.
  • Make sure the ‘Restart when necessary’ box is checked.

It should be said that, according to Samsung’s own website, this setting could come out differently. It would be the same, but following these steps:

  • On your Galaxy mobile, open ‘Settings’.
  • Go to the ‘Battery and device care’ section.
  • Click on the icon in the form of three points in the upper right.
  • Now click on ‘Automatic action’.
  • Check the box ‘Automatic daily optimization’.

Similarly, on some Samsung devices it is even possible to set a time for reboots. You can find that option in the same panel that the automatic optimization option was in and, as you can imagine, it is advisable to set it for dawn or any other time when you know you won’t be using your mobile.

It should be said that this function also includes other automatic actions They go through closing background applications that are generating a large consumption of RAM. In this way you will make sure that your Samsung Galaxy is always optimized without the problems that come with not restarting the mobile every day. Although, of course, if it is something that you have in mind, you can also restart it manually when you see fit.
