    Having too many apps affect performance?

    I was wondering if having many downloaded and presumably installed apps on the phone will have a negative impact on the phone's overall performance? I just around 40 or so apps on the phone using a little more than half the internal (app) storage.

    Theoretically, one should be able to install as many apps as the memory can handle, since it's not "running" unless it's called to. I realize that some apps also auto start but not sure if it actually "run."

    you've got a handle on the idea of apps installed vs. apps running.

    you might run into issues with a rogue app draining battery or slowing the OS but having a certain number of apps installed shouldn't matter... unless they're running

    I'm also wondering if this causes the menu lag

    menu lag, probably since it will take longer to populate a larger app library.
