Close Apps Every Little Time Saves Battery, True or False?

Close apps in the background is one of the most popular battery saving methods used by Android users. At first, ending the processes that are running in the background in our smartphone seems a good way to extend the autonomy of the terminal for a few hours, but, really?

If you are one of those who performs this process in order to scratch a few minutes of screen on the battery of your mobile, I am sorry to tell you that you are doing wrong. Closing the apps in the background, not only does not save battery, but also can be counterproductive to your goal, and today we will explain why.

No, closing apps in background does not save battery


Currently, Android is a mature operating system that features advanced battery management and memory management. Thanks to them, applications open in the background, only run when they need to perform a specific activity such as checking for notifications or update information. What happens if we close these applications?

Instead of staying closed, the application will try to open itself by all possible means, thus consuming a greater amount of resources at startup, in addition to having to start again to execute the actions that we have interrupted ourselves at the time of closing the application .

So widespread is the belief that closing apps in the background saves battery, which Hiroshi Lockheimer himself, vice president of Android, had been posting on Twitter for some time, which is, in effect, an erroneous measure that can adversely affect the duration of The battery.

So you know, if you also are the ones that close all the applications that you open to save battery, we recommend that you stop doing it as soon as possible, because, besides not serving for this purpose, can be translated into a greater battery consumption.

And you, do you close applications in the background?
