1. Update to the latest OS
Manufacturers release various updates throughout the year. You should update your phone to the latest os to prevent it from any lag, security breach and delayed response.

Yes, internal storage lags your smartphone. If the internal storage is full then you may feel performance lag as the system has to work more. Try to move items to the SD card.

6. Background refresh

8. Close recent apps
When you use multiple apps simultaneously then it may be difficult for your device to manage RAM (on lower RAM devices). These apps take unnecessary RAM. Close and remove all apps from recent apps once you used that.
9. Don’t install beta versions
Never update beta versions of any app or operating system. Beta version means the application is not tested successfully and is in the development phase. This can result in a slow down of your device.
One of my friends installed a beta version of MIUI on his Redmi Note 7 pro and he started facing lags on the 6 GB RAM phone. So it is advised to wait until the company releases its stable version.
10. Use Lite apps
Many popular apps have a lite version of the application which is usually 1-2 MB. These versions are lightning fast to load on any device. They are developed for lower-end phones and perform well even on slow internet connection. You should download lite versions. Facebook, Twitter, Messenger, Uber, Tik Tok, and many other apps are available in a lighter version.
