Use these three options as like us, if the device is occasionally stopped working then we will suggest you either turn off the device for a few minutes or go with the second option.

If the device is freezing/crashing on and off then we will recommend you to change the device place, move to some free space, and choose the second option or the first option depending upon the device.

Sometimes what happens is due to poor network connection the device takes too much load to process the actions imputed by users, but due to poor network strength the device cannot proceed with all the things at once and as a result the device freezes or crashes.

While downloading the game from the internet some due to some of the interruption in the game data, it stored some of the cache data which increases the unnecessary storage in the device, and eventually, the game starts lagging and after a while, the device starts freezing.

Nevertheless, if you are using another cheap power cable, not using the cable which is recommended by the brands then what option is the device’s hardware system will not work as it should work so the hardware will manage to carry the data in the backhand of the system will fail after so many activities in it.
