7 Android overclocking apps to get the most out of your rooted device15
Of course, it's no surprising that overclocking has been alive and well on Android since the operating system's dark ages.

Another thing you can do is install a custom ROM and kernel with built-in overclocking tools! But whatever you choose to do, don't push your smartphone's tiny processor harder than it should go. System instability aside, there is a very real risk of meltdown.
