InShortViral: It is found that deleting Facebook’s app and messengers app can boost smartphone’s performance and battery life.
Facebook’s Android App is badly affecting performance and battery life. The users complained that it drains battery even it is running in the background.
However, Facebook doesn’t have the greatest track record with its Android App. The Facebook users frequently complained about performance issues and draining up of battery. In 2015, Facebook’s Chief Product Officer, Chris Cox directed its staff to move to Android rather than iPhone’s till they solved the issues.
These problems still persisted and Android Blogger, Russel Holly’s opinion to dump the app sparked chain of reactions in the Android Community. Many Android Users dumped Facebook App to check performance on their smartphones. Induced by Holly’s disclosure that life on Android was better without Facebook’s app, Reddit user pbrandes_eth tested the app’s impact on the performance of an LG G4.
They noticed that when the Facebook and its Messenger Apps were uninstalled, other apps on the smartphone opened 15% faster. They also tested 15 different apps and documented the finding which influenced other Reddit users to test other devices. However, they found same results when they tested the app loading performance. Many users have supported Holly’s dumping Facebook App campaign.
If you dump Messenger and Facebook App, you can save up to 20% of your battery as well as experience smooth performance on your device. Earlier iPhone users also complained that Facebook App is draining their battery even if they are not using it. However, later Facebook said they will fix this issue which is causing frequent draining of battery.
So, this is all about the Facebook’ Applications which is weakening the smartphone’s performance and also draining the battery. We suggest you to use Facebook’s mobile versions on your browser rather than going for Facebook Apps and wait till Facebook will sort out this issue.
