Do Android phones and tablets slow down over time? Many people seem to think so. We’ll look at the reasons why devices slow down and how to battle slow downs.

Be careful of the Trim command ("LagFix"). It will brick some devices. I did that to a Lenovo tablet, and some Nook HD / HD+ devices are also supposedly vulnerable.

The single most effective thing to speedup my droid razr was to set Background Data Restricted from the Smart Actions app.
Trigger: "It's during a specific time" => set to "Always"
Actions: "Adjust Background Data" => set to "Only when using that app"
Most apps are constantly accessing the internet connection in the background in the interest of keeping the app current. But I found there is only a minor lag when starting an app such as gmail. Merely takes an extra second to sync email messages when I fire the app up.

Made a MAJOR improvement in performance. My phone no longer locks up like it used to. It's like a got a new phone.
