  1. Abdul,
    I was not aware of smart ram booster. Thank you for sharing. I find that many times I download too many applications to my phone and it definitely slows it down. Your post reminds me I need to delete some of them 🙂 Thank you.

  2. Thank you for sharing this information with us, Abdul. You definitely know your stuff! You seem to be very knowledgeable about tech things. I admire that. Take care!

  3. hi Abdul Ghani plz tell me that from where i can check that is my celll ram is increased or not???i have completed all the steps mentioned in method 1. plz rply thanx

    • Hello Irfan,

      If the swapper app shows you “successfully done” then you can confirm that your phone’s ram is increased. Or you can also do another check by accessing the memory directly from file manager, see its size and the amount of space used.

      That’s it. Hope you understood it.

      Abdul Ghani.
