In this post, I will be featuring 10 Awesome and use android tips and trick that may improve your experience while using your Android device. Do note that the steps may vary a little from one Android phone to another due to the differences in the build and the OS version and also sometimes from mobile-to-mobile, but if you play around with it, the next step isn't too far off.
 
1. Disable App Notifications
 
If you are tired up by annoying app notifications that just keep coming and If you don’t know already, these app notifications also drain your phone’s battery. If you want to turn them off, and you are on Jelly Bean 4.1 and above, here’s how you can do it:
  1. On any of your unwanted notifications in your notification bar, long press on the notification for a message box to appear.
  2. Tap on App Info > Untick Show Notifications > OK.

2. Disable Mobile Data  
Whenever you don’t need to stay connected with internet, disabling the Mobile Data can help you keep your smartphone battery from draining too quickly and can also increase your battery life. Turning off mobile data is as easy as:
  1. Going to Settings > Data Usage.
  2. Disable Mobile data by toggling the setting from ON to OFF.

3. Set Mobile Data Limit  
If you want to keep track of how far your usage is from your monthly mobile data limit? If you have ICS and above, there is a feature which lets you keep track of how much of the quota you have left. Its easy , just follow the steps below : 
  1. Head over to Settings > Data Usage.
  2. Set your data limit by dragging the orange line to reflect your monthly quota.
  3. Set your data usage cycle based on when your "month" starts and ends, and you’re done.
You will be alerted once you hit the limit you have set. Note that the tracked data usage of your phone may vary slightly than your carrier’s tracking.

5. Disable Automatic App Updates  
Prefer to read through app permissions and manually pick which app updates to adopt? You can, but first you need to disable your automatic app updates. Here are the steps:
  1. Open Play Store and head over to Settings.
  2. Tap on Auto-update apps.
  3. Choose Do not auto-update apps.
If you want to enable the auto updates, follow the same path and choose Auto-update appsat any time or via Wi-Fi (available for certain Android devices only).

To update your apps manually, just open Play Store, and on the main page swipe in from the left and tap on My apps. You can tap on apps with pending updates and update them manually, or if you like to update them all at once, just tap on Update All.

  2. Swipe right and look for the All tab.
  3. Select the app you want to remove as default.

8. Organize Homescreen Shortcuts With Folders  
Once you have a lot of apps installed, your home-screen might be filled with app shortcuts. Unlike the app drawer, the apps on your home screen are not arranged alphabetically. So, you might want to create some folders for your homescreen shortcuts.
  1. Assuming you have more than a handful of shortcuts already on your homescreen, long press on any of the shortcuts and drag it onto another shortcut.
  2. A circle should now appear around the apps, indicating that a folder has been created.
  3. By tapping on the newly created folder, a mini window will pop up with your apps in it.
  4. You can drag and drop additional apps into the folder if you like. You can also rename the folder by tapping on the text area at the bottom of the mini window.

9. Disable Animations  
Here’s a tip on how to make your Android device run a bit smoother and faster: disable its animations. You will need to have access to Developer Options which can be found under Settings or About device.
Note: For some phones, you may need to go to Build number and tap on it repeatedly until you see "You are now a developer!". Developer options are now enabled.
Under enabled Developer options, look for Window animation scaleTransition animation scale, and Animator duration scale. Then, turn them off (disable) them one at a time.
