    Lots of people says that using the back button to close an app after you are finished using it closes the app so it can prolong battery life.

    Some says that using home button to freeze/pause an app in the background/RAM helps prolonging battery life because your phone dont need to load the app anymore when you need it again.

    Which is actually the best way to exit an app in android? Home button or back button?

    Will using the back button all the time/closing makes your device faster than using the home button/minimize?

    There is no advantage to either method. Not in battery life and not in speed.

    Neither way closes the app. It just minimizes it. You still have to press the recent app key and swipe it away to close.

    Neither of those force closes the app. But you shouldn't be trying to force close it anyway. Android can manage RAM a lot better than we can

    Depends on the app. Some apps shut down and take themselves out of memory. Others just send you back to the homescreen.

    What's best? I'm one to just let Android handle memory management.
