A couple of years ago Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer said: “You don’t need to be a computer scientist to use a Windows phone, but I think you do to use an Android phone.”

Time has proven that Ballmer was wrong because if that fact turns out to be true, then Android wouldn’t be as popular as it is today. Most people came to Android from feature phones which make things difficult. However, Android platform is not hard for the average use to figure out anything.

#2 Task Killer Is A Must-Need:

Android users will almost agree to this point. Apps are cached in RAM which only helps you to get to the apps more quickly. Your Android smartphone allows apps to run in the background with fewer restrictions. The apps in your background are usually frozen.

If you are using a task killer, then stop it for the temporary time and you will see a noticeable improvement in both battery life and stability.

#5 Android Lags More Than iOS:

Well, most of the smartphone users complain about lagging issues. However, studies tell different stories. Recently, we have shared an article in which we have reported that iOS apps crash more often than Android apps.

Let me clear you. The actual problem starts when we update our Android operating system. You might have noticed that your Android tends to crash more often after updating, this is because app developers need to find the bug and optimize, this can take some time.

All the mobile platforms suffer from lag and crash from time to time. Therefore, make sure you are using an up-to-date device and reputable apps.
