These are the Android apps that are draining your battery, using your storage and slowing your phone
AVG Technologies released its quarterly list of the Android apps that it says are having a negative impact on your phone. These are the apps that are draining your battery, eating all of your memory and consuming all of your data. The metrics from over 1 million Android units was examined and music streamer Spotify tops the list of apps that have an overall negative impact on the performance of your phone. 

While Spotify can slow down your device while the app is open, it turns out that Facebook can gum up the workings of your handset even if the app is closed. As soon as you turn your phone on, the social media app starts making your phone sluggish. Looking at apps that chew your data, Tumblr leads the way with Snapchat second. BBC News, Netflix and Spotify round out the top five.

Speaking of Spotify, the music streamer can use the storage on your phone to hold 3333 songs. That action puts Spotify on top of the list of apps that are storage hogs. The Chrome Browser is second, followed by the Line Camera, Kindle and SoundCloud.


You're probably dying to know which apps are most responsible for the battery drain on your phone. Among apps that auto start, the Beaming Service for Samsung is the worst offender. Among apps that are user-run, Samsung WatchON is on top of the list. Some popular user-run apps that can suck the power right out of your battery include Snapchat and Walmart. The latter pair ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.
