Which Android Running Services Can I Freeze

Hi Guys,

Lately Google Play Services has been taking away a large chunk of RAM of the phone and it is also affecting the battery performance. I noted down some of the services that run in background and want to know which of these can I freeze using Link2SD. Name of some services are not complete because the phone wasn't showing full name.

SystemUpdateService
Google Analytic
Google Play Services (com.google.android.gms)
DeviceConnect
GoogleLocation
BrokeredFitness
NlpLocation....
GoogleLocation
DispatchingService
Google Play Service (com.google.process.location)
Google Play Service (com.google.android.gms.we...)
GcmService
Google Message...
Google Play Service (com.google.process.gapps)
Tertiary Tracker
Atci_service
Network Diagnose


Which of these services can I freeze safely. Most of them are started by the Google Play Services.

The ones I starred are probably pretty safe. You're on your own as far as the others go. (Freezing any location service will stop anything needing your location from working properly.)

Thanks for the reply. What requires these location services? I don't use GPS and neither I use Google Maps.

That's pretty much all that needs them - mapping programs of some sort - but even a weather app will use them if they're available to initially set up the location as the one you're at. (Most apps like that allow you to input the location manually, so you don't need the location services, it just makes it faster to install the app.)
