We are continuously focusing on eradicating Smoking and Drinking as they are bad habits and does bad affect on our body. But there is one more bad habit that people are living with which can lower the performance of our phones and also decrease its battery life.
I am talking about the Ram booster and Cache
cleaner applications that people use to speed up their devices and for clearing Cache memory.
First, let’s focus on RAM BOOSTERS. There are so many applications available in play store which claims to speed up your device by stopping applications in the background and clearing RAM. But, Is they are allowed to stop background activities on an Android phone? The answer would beNO. Take an instance of WhatsApp which keeps running in the background for notifying users when any message comes.
How does it run in the background ?
For running any Android Application in the background, there is a service implementation. When we write anything inside this class, it keeps executing in a regular interval of time. Now when you use RAM Boosters for clearing your RAM, these apps get force stopped for a while and restarts after some time. So here, we should know that any Android app havingbackground services can’t be stopped using these fake Booster apps. It can only be stopped at the root level after getting SuperUser privileges. So, What these RAM Boosters do is just show you the amount of Available RAM just after stopping running apps and when you go inside Application manager after 2-3 minutes, you will see the reality.
If you use Android version 4.1+, then your Android operating system is capable of managing all background apps and you don’t need these apps.
Second, let’s talk about CACHE CLEANER apps. So,What is Cache memory? Cache memory is the fastest memory where installed applications, visited websites saves some data so that when you launch previously opened app again or visit that website again, they don’t have to load again the images or useful data and can retrieve them from the cache memory and speeds up the process. So, it provides a performance boost to your phone. If you clean the cache memory frequently then the applications have to download the required data every time you launch apps and increase the app-launch time. It also causes more consumption of the battery.
You should only clean cache memory when your device has less internal storage or when cache memory increases to more than a GB. You can clear it directly from the storage found in the settings menu.
I hope this post will help you in deciding which apps are good for your phone and which are not. So, share this post with your friends and save their phone. Keep Exploring. Keep Learning. Thanks For Reading.
