Hi @LucyInTheSky   Have you put some apps which are not used a great deal into sleep mode , more information here https://www.samsung.com//support/answer/Manage Sleeping Apps 

You could also force  restart the device,Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 10 seconds.When the  Samsung logo appears , release both keys and allow it to continue the boot process. 

If this does not make much difference  have you wiped the cache partition lately, if not this would be advisable. Temporary files are deleted but no Data is lost.

1. Turn off the device.
2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and then press and hold the Power key 
3. When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
4. An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
6. Press Power key to select.
7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
9. Press the Power key to restart the device.

should not need to connect to computer in A series.

Whilst a  Factory Reset will sometimes be necessary would be a last resort and ensure data is backed up before doing this.

Hi to be honest with you A10 it's a budget phone with very low capable system especially the new One UI which eats a lot of Ram my opinion is the phone because of the low specs

Older processor and lower specifications certainly will be part of the problem.

@LucyInTheSky  If considering upgrading the A13 or A21s  one of the cheaper options but still will slow down over time.https://www.expertreviews.co.uk/samsung/1412174/samsung-galaxy-a21s-review   https://www.techradar.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-a13  can see some more powerful devices here https://www.samsung.com/uk/smartphones/galaxy-a-series/?product1=sm-a536bzkneub&product2=sm-a336blbg...

Usually A series Come with a Much lower Performance which menas it will automatically run slow. The S Serues have a much much better perfoemance with more ram. E.G S22 Ultra with 12GB RAM With RAM Plus = about 20GB RAM. A10= 2GB Ram with limited Performanxe. So All A series Tend to run Ridiculously slow and get insanely hot within 10 minultes of usage.
