Games use a lot of storage
Streaming and social networks consume more mobile data
Drums?

Does your Android battery last very little? Do you use the «megabytes» or mobile data of your data package quickly? Are you struggling to have more storage space in your phone memory? Well, if you are in any of these three, or all at once, maybe several of the installed apps are to blame..

Some time ago, the security firm AVG did a study lasting more than 6 months, analyzing the actual behavior of several popular Android applications available on Google Play. Of all the applications analyzed, he discovered which were the thirty that use the most resources on Android: the 10 that use the most battery , the 10 that use the most mobile data  and the 10 that use the most storage.

Games use a lot of storage

Despite its age, this is a study that is still valid today. Some things are pretty obvious and some are not so obvious. For example, what you are telling us is that games occupy the most storage on Android. In this case, you may want to consider moving them to the SD card , another type of storage,  or formatting the SD as internal memory to expand the available space .

Streaming and social networks consume more mobile data

Streaming apps like Netflix and Spotify, as well as Facebook-like social networks that are synchronizing all the time in the background, are among the apps that consume the most mobile data. Here you can restrict the use of mobile data or block the internet for these types of applications when you are connected through the operator..

Drums?

Regarding battery consumption, there is no specific category of apps that abuse this resource, so in this case it is better to use Android's own battery monitor (Settings, Device management, Battery), third-party applications such as WLD , or even WatchDog , which measures CPU usage and can indicate some abnormal behavior of an application.
