You might have noticed that if you use your android device without precautionary measure for like six months, the device starts lagging, I have used android for years and the thing that I have noticed is that Android starts lagging after some months and it requires factory restore to get back to its original performance.
The reason for android slowing down after some span of time is because of foreign malwares and viruses, that get into your smartphone through download or by connecting your device to malwares infected PC’s.You might have noticed that iPhone doesn’t slows down with time, even if they do, it takes years for them to start lagging in the performance, whereas Android starts lagging within months, the reason behind it that iOS doesn’t allows any foreign file in your hardware, through the download from the browsers or through app downloading.
