If you are facing a Slow performance on Android TV. then you can try these tweaks to improve the performance. You can notice major lag on Home Menu, Apps Interface, and watching H.D videos. The major reason is Android TV is not a completely optimized version for T.V which makes Android TV. slow compared to other Smart T.V. So here are some tweaks that can improve the performance of Android TV.
The major reason is the lower hardware specifications of Android TV. Most of the Android TV comes with 2 G.B of R.A.M and 8 or 4 G.B of R.O.M(Storage). These specifications are not sufficient to use any latest Android apps smoothly on Android TV. In 2020 using Android smartphones with 2 GB RAM and 4 G.B is not even worth trying on.
