    Sorry if its been asked... but other than the stock app that comes on the phone... what's the consensus on running another app killer from the market??? Stock phone all the way...

    I don't think it's necessary in the newest versions of android. My phones always seem to run better without them. But I would also like to know the answer to this as well.

    I use Android Assistant for my app killer. It seems to make things run just a tad smoother. I can free up between 350M and 530M (not a typo) free memory total. I have read that it is not good to use an app killer, but haven't researched the reason for this.

    Because there its more to performance than how much free memory a device has.

    I've been on Android since Eclair and I haven't seen task killers do anything but cause more problems than they help.

    One of the reasons is that some apps are designed to auto start. Killing them just makes them start up again - using MORE of your phone's resources than if they were just left running in the background.
