1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Are you running a task killer on your Transform? Maybe you shouldn't...

    I have been looking for ways to speed up my phone that do not involve rooting.

    After some reading I came across this article
    http://m.lifehacker.com/5650894/android-task-killers-explained-what-they-do-and-why-you-shouldnt-use-them

    I know this can be a contested subject, so I am going to say now this is what I have seen.

    I have uninstalled Advance Task Killer from my phone.

    After doing so I have noticed a significant increase in speed of the phone, going through menus, using the web, and just multi tasking.

    Again this is what I have seen and thought I would share this with fellow Transform owners.

    RH this is exactly why I use SystemPanel, so I know everything thats going on with my phone, and by everything I really do mean everything. It's helped me better manage my phone and it's also a task killer, but I only use it if I downloaded an app thats using too much CPU and I need to uninstall it. Good informative post man.

    I've found that I get the best battery life by using a task killer (I have ATK on mine) to manually kill apps each time I put the phone to sleep. This includes using ATK to kill itself. I tried removing it, based on this thread, and my battery life tanked by using nothing, so I put it back on to use this technique again until I find something better for free. ;)

    Yeah, I've been using ABI (Advanced Battery Improver) since the first week of owning my phone. I do notice it slows down and freezes sometimes but ONLY when I have the wi-fi turned on and it has lost connection to that hotspot.

    My battery used to drain to 35% by the end of the work day without ABI.
    Now my battery is at 70% consistently by the end of the work day. It seems to work for me.
