Android is the biggest app-store with more than 3.6 million apps available for download. It has maintained the top position in the operating system since 2010. Its growth has increased exponentially over the years and has accounted for more than 80% of sales in 2017. Marshmallow, Nougat, and Lollipop are some of the most popular Android versions.
With more and more downloads everyday, people complain of low performance and some take up task killer to kill the apps. Either way, you are harming your machine.
Why is it harmful to use a task killer?
Primarily, a task killer is a mobile app which forces the mentioned apps to stop working immediately. There are different types of task killers. Some kill automatically at the stipulated time and others kill only when the user mentions specifically.
An Android operating system does not require a task killer for optimal performance. It can manage the apps on its own. In fact, by using a task killer to force-stop a process or a task, an additional load is added on CPU. And it consumes more power and consumes double the time to start again. Hence, by using a task killer, CPU overheats and reduces performance.
So, don't use a task killer, instead use one of the following apps which can help to speed up your Android.
