    I really need help to figure out which running apps i should delete. Im not sure which ones i can delete that i don't need. i have deleted some of them before and messed up all my stuff and had to redo everything. so how do i figure out which ones i don't need? Someone please help me!!!! There are also a couple things running that i can't figure out what they are running or what they are for like the wiper app and LGATCMD Services. if anyone can tell me what these are i would really appreciate it. Thanks

    Why do you want to delete these apps? Is your phone not running properly?

    Don't worry about it. Android does an excellent job of automatically managing running processes and memory for you.

    Relax and enjoy your phone.

    the newer versions of android are designed to manage app usage for you.
    i dont use task managers or app killers on any of my devices.

    None.

    This is the reason why.

    Why don't you just not delete them? Most people don't delete anything that they did not install themselves and have no issues with the phone. Trying to delete stuff you don't know what it is for can cause harm for little or no gain.
