I decided to dig a Lil bit to discover what the major problems are. There are many method/ways to combat Freezing on Android devices such as resetting the device, restoring the factory settings, installation of Custom ROM, etc. Most often you lose your important files in these process.

Resetting and Flashing Android devices will definitely leave the device free from those applications which are responsible for the freezing problems. The trick is simple and I think you should give it a try.
