How To Turn Off Background Apps On Galaxy S6 And Galaxy S6 Edge

Galaxy-S6-main

If your Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge has been running slow and the battery is dying fast, it could be because of all the extra apps running in the background. When your email, social networking and daily lifestyle apps search the Internet on a regular basis trying to update these apps, it doesn’t help your smartphone that much.

All these applications searching the web for new emails, and updates use a lot of bandwidth and battery life; slowing down the smartphone. It’s a much better idea to just update these apps manually on your own to save the battery life on the Galaxy S6.
