Dear all,

i have been informed by a Samsung staff who was one of my friend's friend from Korea that it's no good to use a Task killer apps to close background apps. In a long run it'll be bad for the phone SGS.
like iphone, maybe, u just need to press the center button and let it be. restart if u need to.
i don't know, he's from the inside, i think i'll do as he say... see the out come.

nonsense, if you don't kill apps, your battery dies super fast.

I agree, task killers are a must.  I have had an Android phone for over 1 1/2 now and every time I try to run without a task killer the phone gets major lag and battery gets sucked fast.  Task killers are a must if you use them properly.

k..my friend is using a different phone when the korean tech told her not to use the app killer. maybe SGS is different.
i use a SystemPanel Lte app (a kind of app killer), which show the Active and Inactive (Cached) App on the background, to check the mem usage.
it does not lag much more then if i kill all the apps, but there was one time the battery does deplete very fast..not sure if it's due to the GPS or Wifi enabled or something else.
then i kill all the apps again.  Eyes Rolling
now battery is ok even when i didn't kill, as it's sort of no point killing since the random apps keep re-running themselves again in the background, after everytime u kill them all.
it's silly...hmmm...still have to experiment a while.

just discover an atternative, use an app call fast reboot to free memory. great too.

anyway the new firmware have a new program monitoring widget or task manager to "end" Active program.
Cool

I've heard from a good friend of mine that 'killing' apps is NOT the right way to close them. On a rooted (plain rooted) device one could run this tool called Autokiller which does this right. It works upon Android's native task manager I think, which anyway cuts down heavy mem apps -- this tweaks the same's limit.
