Android for beginners: Setting up your phone

29 December 2012
So you got an Android smartphone for Christmas? Congrats! Now, go ahead and do the robot dance. We'll pretend we're not watching. One thing you can be certain of, no one's gonna laugh at you. A new droid is worth celebrating - but if it's your first, you may as well want to make some noise...

Its a great article.
You should have given a tool for improving the performance of the phone.
Now I had a HTC wildfire and Lenovo P700i. Its always a struggle to manage memory. I install a programme, run it, then move to other application, its remain in memory. I kill the app and/or service, it still come back after sometime.
I also have a Nokia 710 with same ram as P700i, I rarely faces memory full issues like lagging, slower response.
Is there a solution (free and no rooting involved) where, one a process is killed, it does not automatically starts?

I like android a lot. But finally traded in my galaxy 7.7 because of no promised upgrade. And each time it tried to push, I lost the use of some apps. Could no longer get yahoo, for example.
