ZTE Blade Optimisation Guide
I have had the ZTE Blade for about a month now and I have noticed that sometimes it can become a bit slow and laggy but with the use of some free apps from the market I was able to help speed up the Blade's performance without much effort.
Advanced Task Killer
Launch the app > Press "menu" button > Go to settings > Change "Auto Kill Level" to "Safe" also change "Auto Kill Frequency to "When screen off"
Disable all apps you don't need to start up when the phone boots
Make sure Launcher Pro is the default launcher. I recommend that you only have 3 homescreens with minimal use of widgets. i have found that keeping the default settings improves performance.
I found that LauncherPro and Zeam are similar in performance but they are both great launcher replacements.
Only needed if you are using a stock rom or one with a lot of apps you don't use or want. Remove any Orange or ZTE apps you don't use to free up space on the phone's internal memory.
