I bet that you wonder why your old smartphone is not so spry as after purchase. Unfortunately, we install a lot of applications which slow down our devices. One such application is the Facebook, however a lot of people install also Messenger app. How they impact on smartphone performance?
One of Reddit users executed very simple benchmark on his LG G4 smartphone. DiscoMark application was used to measure launch-times of 15 applications. Each application was started 3 times in a row and the average value was calculated. LG G4 needed 7 seconds to open these all 15 application when Facebook and Messenger apps were installed. After removal of these two big programs, the smartphone needed 15% less time in order to accomplish the same tasks. Of course, you can use Facebook Lite as an alternative, however you should also know that this lite version has less features. So, as always, the choice is yours.
