If you ask people about what bugs them the most about their phones, it would be battery draining problems. The thing is, this problem can occur due to constant use or due to a number of reasons such as apps, cache memory, and bugs, viruses, etc that can exploit the battery out of its juices. Also, since the battery has a lifecycle that runs on thousands, constant charging and draining might have weakened the battery towards its end as well. This is the reason why batteries usually fail after two years or so which is when you can simply replace them. Here at GetDroidTips, we got tons of request to look into Haier battery draining problems and since no two problems can be same, we decided to render a list of troubleshooting guide that must help you fix it.
Methods To Fix Haier Restarting And Freezing Problem
Reboot the system
So here’s the supreme when it comes to a quick method to resolve any performance, software-related issues that you are having including restarting and freezing problem. The thing is, when you reboot the system, it abruptly shuts down all apps and processes where you might not be able to save work done, but it will surely free up the hoarded resources that were slowing down the system causing the screen to freeze at a point. Now, consider this that you can restart your phone if it is restarting abruptly but you’ll need to force reboot which is a combination of both power and volume up or down button based on your model that must do the job.
Too many apps running simultaneously
Modern smartphones allow users to multitask running a number of apps at once. Since no app can be same, every app has its own requirements such as storage, RAM, battery backup, etc. It is probable that there are just too many apps involved simultaneously that the system is facing resource crunch or it is under a lot of stress. Other possible explanations could be app conflicts which are a thing and app crashes that occur when an app isn’t able to complete a task and times out. The solution is to neglect to multitask with too many apps and stick to opening a few at a time.
It’s all about the apps
Now that we are mingling with the apps, your Android smartphone has a tonne of bloatware or pre-installed apps. Then, the Google Play Store allows downloaded an unlimited number of apps which is icing on the cake. What this does is people usually install too many apps either at once or gradually. Since these apps consume storage and other resources on your smartphone, they are still consuming what a heavy app like the game could have used to run smoothly. The advice here is to get rid of unwanted apps. You can do the same by jumping into the Settings >> Apps >> Downloaded and click on any app that you don’t want and uninstall it.
For bloatware, you can go through Settings >> Apps >> All and search for bloatware that you don’t use and tap on it. Finally, press the ‘Disable’ button to turn it off temporarily.
Cache memory needs to chill
To summarize the concept of cache memory, these are temporarily created and stored files that contains explicit data that will speed up the retrieval duration that you would take to open an app the second time. Although cache memory is useful, it has its own backlogs as well such as susceptibility to corruption, vulnerable to getting bugged or attacked and exploited by viruses, malware, and whatnot.
This is why we usually recommend our readers to clear all types of cache files which shouldn’t take more than a minute to complete. Firstly, you need to open up Settings and navigate to Apps >> Downloaded. Here, a list of third-party apps will populate where you can tap on each app individually and select ‘Clear Data’ and ‘Clear Cache’ to curb the said types of files.
Next, you need to open Settings tool on your device and access Storage or Memory. Here, a section titled ‘Cache Memory’ will appear that you can select to delete. The third and final method is to wipe the cache partition that you can access via recovery mode.
Free up storage & RAM
You need to know that every app on your phone uses the internal storage & RAM to process its data. With smartphones getting advanced with more than 32GB internal storage or 4GB RAM and more, I don’t think so that it could be a problem but with smartphones that put below the said quota need to reserve some space in the internal memory to let apps use it to process the data. If your phone has 8GB ROM, it is not practical to keep more than a GB free, however, you can use a memory card to move the data and keep the internal memory free. The same goes for RAM and that is if your RAM is low, you must use fewer apps, clear RAM when needed and this must prevent the phone from entangling itself into the restarting and freezing problem.
Get help from an external memory card
You already know why it is crucial to have free space in the internal memory but since not every smartphone has a colossal internal memory such as the Android devices with 4GB, 8GB, or even 16GB internal storage are lagging a lot. This is where the memory card comes into play. You can insert a minimal memory card and move all the data to an external microSD card to speed up the device. On the other hand, if you already have a memory card and your phone is facing restarting and freezing problem, try using the phone by removing the card since these memory cards are susceptible to getting corrupted.
Optimize the device
I do know that these apps barely work but most of these apps will make your system a little faster than usual at least for some time. You can download apps like One Booster, Phone Booster, Speed Boost Mobile or others that will automatically clear cache files, remove unwanted junk files and more with a single click. Note that not all these apps are the same since many works too but you need to try it out on your device to find its effectiveness.
Update and Upgrade
Your smartphone runs on two components i.e. hardware and software and this part belongs to the latter. As you have hundreds of apps installed on your device, the firmware is actually supporting it by providing an interact for apps and hardware components to work in conjunction. This makes it imperative to update all the apps installed on your phone including bloatware while upgrading the Android firmware as well. Also, outdated apps are vulnerable to problems and you must avoid getting into the clutches of bugs and viruses simply by updating the system. To update the firmware, slide into the Settings and open About Device section and select Software Updates where you’ll get the information if any updates are available or not.
On the other hand, for apps, you can simply visit the Google Play Store app on your home screen and proceed to ‘My apps and games’. Here, a list of all the apps installed on your device will populate with an option to update apps individually or ‘Update All’ to select the latter.
Perform a Hard reset
Hard reset is something you do if the restarting and freezing problem is out of control and your phones get stuck in either of the two problems often. Since this method is irreversible, you need a backup of all the files and data you want to secure and then, proceed with the said step-by-step guide.
Step 01: Turn off the system (phone).
Step 02: Hold power plus volume up button together and press it for a few seconds.
Step 03: After a few seconds, an Android logo will appear on the screen which is your sign to release the buttons.
Step 04: Let the system proceed to the recovery mode.
Step 05: Use the power button to select an option from the menu while volume rockers act as navigational keys since the touchscreen doesn’t work here.
Step 06: Next, scroll down to ‘wipe data/factory reset’ and then, ‘yes — delete all user data’ from the resultant screen and there you have it.
Call in the big guns
Sometimes, no matter what you do, no matter how easy the problem is, you just can’t resolve it on your own. Since your phone is a delicate electronic device, it needs professional to handle it with care and repair it when necessary. Although most of the cases reported under the category of restarting and freezing problem are related to software, if the restore factory method doesn’t work, you can visit a nearby authorized service center to get it flashed. If it is a hardware problem, you’ll thank us since you shouldn’t actually mingle with a hardware issue unless you don’t have the proper knowledge about it.
