My Android mobile runs too slow

    I have Sony Xperia J ST26i with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 OS

    the background apps that run are

    Twitter (with a home screen widget)
    DU Battery Saver (with a home screen widget)
    Flashlight (home screen Widget only)
    Top Contacts (home screen Widget only)
    Calendar with active active Facebook sync
    MixZing (home screen Widget only)
    Advanced Task Killer (with a home screen widget)
    News and weather (home screen Widget only)
    Daily Expense Manager (home screen Widget only)

    my Advanced Task Killer is scheduled to kill apps every 30 minutes and the above apps are always on the ignore list of Task Killer

    my battery lasts less than a day

    kindly suggest me a better battery saver, app killer and antivirus

    and is it advised to use these many widgets?

    Thank you,

    Hi Helen,

    You will almost certainly save battery by deleting Advanced Task Killer! Here are a couple of articles explaining it.

    Hi its me Helen_Cambell ! I couldn't access my old username so had to create a new one to reply here.

    Thank you Hadron, i did remove Advanced Task Killer and instantly i found a lot of space that made my phone function faster than before, also installed GSam Battery Monitor and things are quite under control but now I feel like my phone is too usual, unable to feel Android !!

    I just thought if i installed Go launcher or may be other ones like Nova I could explore a lot more with my device, I need your suggestions if it would consume battery more.

    Am also thinking of purchasing a new mobile around new year (will there be any new releases?), please suggest me one with a better speed and performance please !

    Thanks in advance :)
