Default [Q] Clear recent task or not?

Sorry for n00b question....

Should I clear recent task or not?

I am rooted wit stock ROM + xposed + gravitybox + Franco kernel.
Earlier i had greenify and had poor battery life and more ram usage (I think greenify uses more ram)
Now i have uninstalled greenify. And battery life is improved.

Just want to know whether clearing recent task make any improvement or not?

Look here for more info on Ram management http://developer.android.com/trainin...es/memory.html. Stopping some apps will not help that much as some apps restart themselves again.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Hi mate,

Having a high end device and clearing RAM again and again is not good because more amount of RAM usage in Android better would be the performance
This is only applicable to high end devices!

Btw how much battery backup does Franco kernel gives you?

With stock kernel, i used to hardly get 3 to 3.hrs of SOT (screen on time)
But with Franco kernal, I get 4 to 4.5 hrs SOT. Mainly I notice the change in battery consumption during sleep which helps me in having higher SOT.

Android manages RAM differently than other operating systems. In short, less RAM usage is not necessarily a good thing. Apps are stored in RAM so when you launch them, they are more readily available.

The operating system will automatically dump apps out of the background if more RAM is needed for whatever task you are completing at that moment.

If you're experiencing unusual battery drain - even when the device is sleeping - check out an application called Better Battery Stats. It will help you identify what apps are causing wakelocks.

I am using the stock kernel and have gotten over 5 hours of SOT on LTE in the course of a day's use - which is not unheard of.
