I understand that the OS handles memory resources and I know that it does not affect battery life. BUT, the droid does become quite sluggish because the OS continue to open skype, and et. al. Leaving 21-28 mb memory free. It slows down the responsiveness of the unit drastically.
When I do an "all kill", the droid processes I am running becomes faster.
Really, Droid should absolutely allow us to dismantle skype, city-id, etc at our choosing. It is constantly bogging my LG Ally to the point of extreme ftustration.
Thanks for letting me vent and express my perspective and experience. I hope that the developer will allow this option to occur.
