Every year we get to meet new Android devices, making the older ones a bit old-fashioned. And if the phone you are using is slow, then it does not come as a surprise that you want to get a new one. There are many reasons why a device is slow, from low RAM to outdated processors. Malware and viruses are also a cause, but the limited CPU clock speed is the main reason why Android devices do not perform to the fullest.
Things to do before you overclock your Android device
Have you heard of overclocking your device? This means that you are basically forcing your device to perform at its maximum power. You can also underclock your device to decrease maximum clock speed. But there are also some things to keep in mind, like the fact that it can overheat your device, and it can make it consume more battery life. It will also mess up with your warranty.
You need to root your device and make sure that it is fully charged. And do not forget to back up your files.
How to overclock your Android device in a few steps
First of all, you need to root your device. After that, download and install SetCPU for Android users. When the process is done, open the app and give it Superuser access. You will have to allow the app to scan the available speeds of a processor.
Then, balance the minimum and maximum speed of your CPU switching. Then, you need to click on “Set to Boot,” when you believe that the speed is stable. After following these steps, you will create profiles, in order to set terms and conditions, when the SetCPU should underclock or overclock your processor speed.
In short, these are all the steps that you can apply to overlock your Android device in no time.
