    this is my first smartphone of this caliber and i'm not sure how i should be using task killers/or even if i should use them at all.

    i've developed a habit of killing apps kinda often.

    how often do you kill apps?
    is the purpose of killing apps to save battery and resources?

    Thanks!

    I did. It made the X unstable, so I stopped.

    No, the phone will do all of it on it's own

    I have it on my phone but I'm not using it in to close applications automatically. Just occasionally to kill particular app.

    Have been using my phone for almost two months, and I see absolutely zero reason to install a task killer. I'm not about to fix something that isn't broken.

    same here, there is no need, the phone runs great no matter what I throw at it.

    I keep one installed just in case one of my apps turns into a zombie. I also changed its icon into a picture of a shotgun.

    This is my first android phone and I haven't bothered with an app killer. I haven't seen a reason to. Most apps seem to have a way to close it and my battery life is great so far

    Nope I have never used a task killer on all four of the Android phones that I have owned.
