10 android problems

An Android smartphone may seem safe for the first few years, but over time it is riddled with glitches and glitches. While many of us may be tempted to buy a new phone every time a new issue arises, I can assure you that there are ways to fix these issues with some simple solutions.


As always, at Guiding Tech, we strive to provide the simplest and most effective solutions. Here we present to you a list of the most common Android problems and their effective solutions.



The most boring of all the news you would like to see. It means that you have to ditch the old photos, apps, and junk files that you have stored on your beloved device. Have you tried backing up these files to the cloud before hitting the delete button to free up more space?

Cloud services like Dropbox, Google Photos for Photos, and Google Drive for Documents is a handy way to store your device's internal memory these days.

And if your Android smartphone allows for customizable storage, you can combine external storage with internal storage and thus increase the overall storage distribution.

However, since not all smartphones come with expandable memory, the options are somewhat limited. However, don't stress, there is consistently a silver-lined. You can choose apps like


One can opt for applications like SD Maid which will help in cleaning up the waste. And believe me, you'll be amazed at how much space that frees up.


The battery is without a doubt the backbone of a smartphone. The Android experience is generally very poor, as you have to plug in the phone now and then to charge it. But all is not lost; with a little care, a smartphone battery can last longer.

Each phone battery comes with a set number of cycles. These cycles usually decrease as you charge your phone. It is therefore strongly recommended to keep the charge between 80% and 8% to extend the battery life by almost 200%.


Before we go any further, let me repeat that disabling the app isn't really a good thing. Instead, you can turn down the screen brightness, activate sleep mode when the phone is not in use, or turn off background data updates for apps. And if you can really afford it, you can turn off location sharing for apps.


A few years later, an Android phone is a much slower version of itself. But no matter how old it is, there are plenty of messages from us that will slow down a phone. One of these many reasons is the number of applications and types of applications.

Unless your phone has the latest processor like SD 831 or 835 and lots of storage capacity, an unusually high number of apps is the main reason for a slow phone. And as mentioned in the first point, heavy apps like Facebook and Google Chrome can slow down your precious phone as well.

 There are a few other fixes that you can research on your own. Our article on the same topic should get your Android back on track.


Apps that are not downloaded from the Play Store can definitely mess up the game when needed. Often the culprit is a set of corrupted caches. All you need to do is go to app settings and clear cache data.

Another safe alternative is to clear your Google Play Store history. Go to Settings and tap on Clear local history.


If that doesn't work, you can remove the default Google account associated with the phone and add it again to resolve the issue.


Late notifications can turn out to be spoilers, especially when you're on the go. For example, you might miss an important email from your boss. One of the main reasons for late notification or no notification is the power saving option that comes with many smartphone ROMs.

There's no doubt that they will do a fantastic job of extending battery life, but have you wondered at what cost? These "features" often affect data connectivity when the phone is at sleep mode, thus blocking apps from their only mode of communication.


Connecting data to a smartphone is essential for its operation, whether it's cellular data you're connected to or Wi-Fi data. One of the most common issues when connecting to Wi-Fi is that data returns to the cellular network as soon as the phone goes to sleep. Boring, isn't it?

Don't worry, this too can be fixed in no time? The above issue occurs due to Android's Wi-Fi sleep policy. Go to advanced WiFi settings and set the Enable WiFi in standby mode option to Never. This way, change never happens.


If you ask me, this problem kept tormenting me. A common typo often misspelled words, is entered in the keyboard dictionary. Fortunately, there is an easy solution. It just takes a little proactivity on your part.

So the next time you see a misspelled word in your keyboard's suggestion bar, long press it and hit Delete. It works on most popular keyboard apps like Gboard, SwiftKey, Ginger, etc.


One of the most valuable (or annoying) features of WhatsApp is that it stores the media in the phone's gallery. Fortunately, WhatsApp media can be easily hidden from the gallery so that you can keep your gallery organized.

All you need to do is go to the WhatsApp pictures folder using File Explorer and create a file called .nomedia. After a restart, all WhatsApp media items will be hidden.


Often, we come across apps that only get canceled multiple times or others that just serve ads that you can't do anything else with.

One surefire way out of this situation is to boot the phone into safe mode. Once a phone boots into Safe Mode, you will find that all third-party apps are disabled. So all you need to do is hit the uninstall button.
