How to manually close apps running in the background on the Fairphone 2
Android manages its memory by automatically closing apps and processes that are not needed, while keeping in memory the ones that you use more often.
Closing applications on your Fairphone 2 will likely not give you a performance boost.
If you want to manually close on of the apps, here is how to do so:
- Touch the open apps button (the square icon on the bottom right side of your touchscreen).
- Swipe left and right to find the app you want to close
- Swipe up to close the app.
You can also close all the apps by swiping to the beginning of the list and touch "Clear All".
