Top android Apps that are Secretly killing your android smart phone








It’s a known fact that smartphones get slower with use and this is caused by installed apps. While these apps may be useful and hard to do away with, the negative effects they have on our devices can make one consider removing them. For instance, Facebook is one app almost everyone has but it’s one of the most power-hungry Android apps ever.




AVG, an anti-virus maker, recently released a list of apps you should probably consider uninstalling from your device. It’s a huge list containing most of our favorite apps and games.

Top 10 performance draining apps run at startup

These apps automatically start running the moment you boot your device and as expected, Facebook tops the list here followed by Google Play Service. Blackberry Messenger and Instagram too make the list. It’s interesting seeing four Facebook apps (Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Pages Manager and Instagram) on this list. Are you willing to do away with these apps to boost your device performance? I doubt that.

These apps too are performance killers but unlike the ones listed above, they do not run automatically. They will never be initiated unless you run the apps and they do not run in the background.

If you have these apps installed, they may be draining your battery even if you don’t use them all the time. They automatically start running the moment you boot your device. Again, your favorites apps (Facebook, Messenger, BBM and WhatsApp) make the list.

These apps too contribute heavily to your data usage but unlike the ones above that automatically start running when you turn on your device, these apps are usually started by the user.

This list highlights some apps we already suspect but then, you shouldn’t go ahead uninstalling these apps because AVG says they’re bad for your phone. Some of the listed apps are actually system applications which your device depends on to properly function.
It’s also worth mentioning that your phone might be equivalent to nothing but a piece of brick without some of these apps. Who wants to uninstall WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook and BBM anyway?
