The Worst Performance Killing Android Apps Are Exactly the Ones You'd Expect  October 4, 2015 – 11:35 am

The Worst Performance Killing Android Apps Are Exactly the Ones You'd ExpectSome of the apps you use on a regular basis are worse for your phone than others. AVG has done some analysis and identified the worst offenders. Unsurprisingly, things like Facebook, Spotify, Netflix, and Amazon top the charts.

AVG’s analysis looked at which apps negatively affect your phone’s performance. This takes into account drains on battery life, storage space, and mobile data usage. The worst offenders are a who’s who of apps that are probably on your phone.

Big names like Facebook, Snapchat, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon, and Instagram all make the charts, sometimes more than once. Google Play Services also ranks as the second worst under apps that start themselves (though this isn’t terribly surprising, as it’s a framework used by tons of other apps).

There are also a few surprise showings. The Weather Channel and Words With Friends were docked for starting up without user input, despite no discernible reason these apps need to launch on startup and run in the background. Facebook Pages Manager also managed to rise through the charts, using up a ton of internal storage, just to manage your pages.

You can check out the full PDF Android App Report here for more of the reasoning and conclusions behind AVG’s analysis. Ultimately, there’s not too much surprising. Big name apps tend to use a lot of resources. However, you may find a few that you didn’t expect.
