I am a Raspberry pi enthusiast and novice in this space. I recently bought my first Raspberry pi 3 with 32 GB SD Card and 1 GB RAM. I find over all it is very slow. My atom (android) is much faster over RPi. Do I need to do something to perform better? I have done update and upgrade but didn't find any significant improvement. BTW I am using my WiFi 150 MB connection.

  • What is the specific task that you claim being slow? – kwasmich May 10 '17 at 15:52
  • Your question is not entirely clear. Is it the network performance that you need more information on? Why is the performance of the Pi so crucial to what you are doing? I find my Pi 3 to be fairly adequate performance wise, given its cost. I would not be surprised if the atom (processor?) offers more performance. – Darth Vader May 10 '17 at 18:22
  • What specifically is slow? It's really not fair to compare a relatively old ARM processor to an x86 one; they're in totally different leagues. – Jacobm001 May 11 '17 at 19:34

Some things to consider:

  • A class 10 SD card.

  • Overclock CPU (this can be done from the sudo raspi-config menu. You can increase the overclock further by editing the config.txt file. There's a good article on how to do this here. Be careful, as overclocking may void your warranty

  • Overclock RAM. This article also shows the process to do it.

  • If it's still too slow for you after all that, consider using a more lightweight OS such as Tinycore Linux.
