If you have enough knowledge about the working of the internet, then you will be aware of DNS. When you enter a URL on a web browser, a DNS server looks up the IP address associated with that domain name. Once found, it notifies the web server of the site to be visited, and then the web page is loaded.

Generally, we use the DNS servers provided by the ISP. However, it is always better to use a public DNS server. Public DNS servers like Google DNS, OpenDNS etc provide better speed and advanced security features. Moreover, having the fastest DNS servers also ensures better internet speed.

Yesterday, we shared an article on How to find the fastest DNS server for your PC. Today, we would be talking about the same for Android. By following this method, you can easily find out the fastest DNS server for your Android smartphone.
