Running Services - Background Processes
This section provides a tutorial example on how to review running services, or background processes, on my Android tablet. Those background processes are started automatically and running all the time.
Since Android is a multi-tasking system, let's see what are currently running on my tablet.
Tap on "Settings", "Applications", then "Running services". I see a long list of items displayed:
LGESystemService 4.3MB SpeakerSwitch 4.9MB Google Service 10MB Maps 7.3MB Android keyboard 8.4MB RAM 108MB used, 364MB free
It seems to me that those are background processes that are started automatically and running all the time. I should leave them alone.
