    App Killers?

    Have heard mixed reviews as to using app killers. Do they help battery life? Are they even needed? Would like some inout want to get the most from my phone and save battery.

    Copy/pasta from another thread, definitely applicable.

    Android is DESIGNED to natively handle open applications and memory usage. If your device is 2.1 or above (most of 'em nowadays) you are just wasting time/battery/resources "killing" tasks. Some are coded to be a "service", meaning they will stay open no matter the case, even if you use a task manager to "kill" them.

    LG OPTIMUS is a solid phone. As far running high end games runs ok Angry Birds lags some but very pleased with it so far.
