How To Turn OFF Background Apps On Samsung Galaxy J7

For those who have a Samsung Galaxy J7 that has a battery that you swear is losing power too quickly and dying too fast, or one that has been running slowly, it could be because of apps running in the background. These extra apps running in the background of your smartphone, like email, social networking, and daily lifestyle apps, search the Internet on a regular basis trying to update, which makes your phone slow and kills the battery fast. If you have more than a couple of them, then they can add up fast.

All these applications searching the web for new emails and updates use a lot of bandwidth and battery life, slowing down the smartphone and shortening the battery life. It’s a much better idea to just update these apps manually on your own to save the battery life on the Galaxy J7.
