Entering Google Play (Android) or AppStore (iOS) increases the need to download any application that is advertised as useful for improving the functioning of our mobile phone. But not all are consistent with what he promises, and worse, cause more problems.
Not only can they be of interest to viruses and malware, they can also fill unwanted advertisements and take up too much space. While Google has eliminated around 700,000 malicious applications for Android, several popular applications that offer miraculous solutions that are not yet such are still circulating.
There are three types of applications that should be avoided:
1. Those who clean the phone
These are the ones that ensure that they are able to improve the performance of the cell by performing general memory cleaning or some data that is invisible to the average user.
The most-known is the Clean Master, which slows down the phone, replaces the blocking screen and encourages us to download more applications from the programmer. Having a background application that closes processes that are reopened is not efficient, no matter how much you maintain that this is an optimization. Not to mention the amount of notifications received that are unnecessary because they are exaggerated.
To delete hidden data on your phone, you can go to the settings and delete the cache data for each application on the storage card.
Go files from Google are more reliable in this regard.
2. Those who promise to save the battery
With frequent use, mobile phones run out within a few hours, which leads to the despair of users. Some applications are more tempting than searching for a charger, so falling into a trap is easy.
If you want to save the battery, try to better manage your own consumption and eliminate applications that use most data (especially those that you never use). No application will give you a magic solution, so try to further reduce the brightness of the screen, use the application in night mode or reduce wireless connections.
3. Those that refresh the smartphone
Overheating a cell phone is also a common problem, due to sun exposure or high temperatures. The system that processes the phone requires a few hours to cool down and use the application just to make it more saturated. It's best to turn the phone off for a few minutes to return to normal.
