How To End Apps On Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus

In our post today, we teach you how to easily close apps on Samsung Galaxy S8/ Galaxy S8+ Plus and also to clear apps that are running. This will help you improve your phone’s performance and also to save the battery capacity. For some users, it is very easy to close apps which are not being used.

 

Procedure

Although the process of removing or closing apps which are out of memory is easy and fast, it differs from one Android device to another. Read this guider further to know how and when to close apps. To start off, we are going to use the capacitive key which is located next to the home key on your smartphone.

Tap on an overlapping rectangle-like button which can be found to the left of home button. This multi-tasking menu key brings up currently open apps. With this button, you can switch from Gmail to YouTube and back to the Browser and Gmail again. This button is what we shall use to swipe away and close several apps on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.

If you want to swipe and close apps, simply use your finger to swipe and close them. Pages and app progress must reload when you use these apps in the future. There is also a chance that you might lose the progress altogether. As you can see in the image provided, I am using the menu to swipe to close and clear the browser.

You should not, however, clear everything on your smartphone. The apps which ought to be kept include phone, the browser as well as messages. If you delete the messaging app, the next incoming text will restart the app and this wastes battery as well as your phone’s CPU cycles. The above rule should apply to all apps on your smartphone and as such you should only close the apps that are no longer required. Power consuming apps include Navigation, games and Google Maps.

You can use the option provided below to close every application. This option is called Close All. When you choose this option, you will lose saved websites, all the texts will be erased and if you were watching a YouTube video, you will lose that too. Sounds alright but you should be informed that hitting the Close Apps option will definitely shut everything down. This is not something that users are recommended to do every time.

Due to the reasons mentioned earlier on, we do not recommend this option of closing all apps. Your phone will be exhausted by the constant process of having to restart each time you use the apps in the future. This option is only relevant during times when the phone is not used much such as when you go to sleep. But you now know how to end apps on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus.
