- Choose your app by size - I always install apps with size less than 10MB to make sure my phone doesn't get lag.
- Don't install system apps - System apps are which monitors system resources. Few examples are battery monitor app and RAM management app. RAM management app kill the app that utilize more resource. It will kill the apps that is designed to run 24 * 7. If it kills such apps, again it will re-launch. So it will be a endless loop and just degrade the performance.
- Install apps developed by good developer - App speed is fully dependant on the developer. You don't have to blame your phone if few apps are slow. Take WhatsApp, this app run 24 * 7, app size is 38 MB even it runs smoothly. The reason is the app is bugless.
