Proper Android Maintenance #2 | Never Install Battery Savers | NGUdbhav

The previous blog cleared the concept of recent apps list. As promised before, this blog explains the working of battery saver apps and cleaners such as CCleaner, NQ system,DU battery saver etc.
This article needs to be divided into two parts for android marshmallow doesn't allow third party apps to modify their system before rooting.
DU battery saver is the king of battery saver apps. This app is even pre-installed on some of the android devices. "The NGUdbhav Corp." highly discourages the use of this app.
Please Check your Internet connection.

As soon as you click on Optimize button, This app terminates, more precisely, restarts the processes other than the main OS process, which results in freeing of the RAM for a moment. After a second or two, additional amount of battery and a big load on processor is used in restarting the processes. Even the detailed RAM usage is not shown correct by this app. The app which has been terminated by the ATK program of our system is also shown as running by this app. Also, this app adds itself to the startup list of the system which not only increases the boot-up time but also presents a load on the processor, adding itself to the battery usage.
CCleaner, Power Master, Clean Master, all apps also does the same thing in one or the other way. One additional feature of these apps is the clearance of the cache memory.
Cache memory can also be cleared manually by following these simple steps:
  1. Open settings and then move towards storage where it will take some time to load the full usage of the internal memory.
  2. Now click on the "Cached Data". This action will prompt you to clear all of your cache memory. Clicking "OK" will clear the cache memory.
So why to waste the precious internal memory to do this by installing an additional application. These apps also add themselves to the auto-startup, increasing the boot-up time of the system.

Are You Really Utilizing your Internal Memory or Wasting it by installing these apps?

Comment your questions, doubts and suggestions!
Next episode will explain the relation of Viruses and Android.

Proper Android maintenance #1 - Do Not Clear the Recent Apps List | NGUdbhav

The start of my blog marks with the clearance of a confusion every android user has (excuse me for my gender discrepency) in his mind.
Almost every android user has a perception in his mind that clearing  the recent applications list actually closes the running application and it saves battery's time and life. Ok! Just relax! If you are standing then please sit down somewhere to successfully resist from the shock that doing all this reduces battery time and imparts a heavy load on the processor of the device. Don't worry, I have my justification. So let's get started: -
Imagine you are typing a letter in notepad. You want to continue  with your work later. Normally, a person would save his/her work and close notepad. Now, if it automatically closes or by mistake, you close it without saving, what's gonna happen? Apart from abusing yourself and the system, obviously, you will have to restart your full effort.
When you close an application on your android device, it creates an entry in the recent applications list. The processor of the phone has now saved the initial start up processes of your tasks somewhere in the RAM and terminated the program. If you now clear the entry, the processor is forced to remove the information of the start up it has previously saved. Now, if you start the same program again, the processor will now start it from zero level, thereby imparting a heavy load on processor and consuming more battery in the time taken to open it. Talking about the case of minimization, the APP is, no doubt, running in the background but when your system feels that work can be saved and application can be terminated, the ATK program of your phone kills that task saving the startup information. So whenever you are required to open the task again, it is not opened from the zero level.
The ATK program is basically Auto Task Killer. It comes into action when the latest processes require RAM storage for functioning and the required memory is not available. ATK program knows which tasks are important and which are not.
So now, if you are clearing the tasks, think twice.
If you have any doubt regarding this article and if you are having any problem in your device or computer, feel free to ask it in comments.

P.S. I am not charging anything for comments😜
Next article would explain the task of battery saving apps such as DU Booster, CCleaner etc. So, Stay tuned!
