Increasing the Speed of Your Android Phone with SetCPU

How to unlock this performance use SetCPU

If you wish to speed up the processor of your phone or slow it down, you can do so with the help of SetCPU. This is done to either achieve better battery life or better performance.

Handheld devices which have been out in the market for quite some time may sometimes be left out by latest handsets or other devices when it comes to performance.

Usually, computer processors, as well as phones, have actually higher speed tolerance than what was already set by default. This only means that most of the time, brand new phones have not really been used to their full potential at all.

Users actually have the option to either slow down or speed up the CPU of any device to improve battery life. There are lots of apps that can help in unlocking this performance but so far, the best app for this is SetCPU.
