Other ways to stop UI Lag and Slow Transitions

Android users have an option to download a third party Android launcher so as to kill the lag they experience while using their phone. Several OEM add a custom UI over the stock Android OS, and sometimes that custom UI does no gel well with the hardware and you get a choppy ride on the OS. Thus these 3rd party launchers help you overcome the lag and give a brushed use experience. Some examples of such launchers are- Apex Launcher, Nova launcher and Inspire Launcher. You can take a look at some of the best Android launchers out there and try them for your self.

We recommend you to consider task managers and cache cleaners as your last resort and not the first. Your lag is more often than not because of a rogue app. If you can’t identify and isolate it, you might as well accede to a task killer. Excessive use might cause several apps to misbehave or act weird.
