Delete the bad apps

The first suggestion mentioned above is clearly a simple process but this is quite complicated, not because of the routine steps you need to strictly follow, but mostly because of the contingencies you are likely going to deal with. Due to the numerous apps that crash frequently, you need to take some time out to research on the apps individually before drawing your conclusion.

You have to consider what other users are saying about the app, their complaints. You have to read up reviews on Google Play Store. Find out if there is any announcement from the developer about any improvements? You consider whether to wait for an update or simply delete the app right away. So many decisions.


Fix the memory problem

Restarting your Note 8 everyday might be helpful in preventing your phone from crashing or freezing. It’s not the most complicated solution but it’s been proved to have produced positive result on different occasions and for that, you may have to try it too. It might be a memory glitch that you could easily correct with the occasional restarts.

Alternatively, you could go to the “Settings” and clear apps’ cache. Go to the Settings, select Manage Applications, select the app that crashes regularly, Choose Clear Data, Select Clear Cache.


Free up some internal memory

Another very vital option is to delete so many apps that are not in active use and also delete unnecessary photos, videos and songs that you really do not need. The more free internal memory space you have, the lower the chances of the crashing or freezing of your Note 8.
