Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 can run applications simultaneously, with some applications running in the background.
Sometimes your device might seem to slow down over time, and the biggest reason for this is background applications. These are applications that were not properly closed or shutdown and are still active but minimized. The Task Manager not only lets you see which of these applications are still active in the background but also easily lets you choose which applications are left running and which are closed.
Note: The larger the number of applications running on your phone, the larger the energy drain on your battery.
