    Is this normal? In my running apps I see 2 Google play services running. One using 14MB and one 28MB. Can anyone explain what this is for?

    Have you figured it out? I have 3 GooglePS running taking up 51mb of RAM. Android is so inefficient. I can't believe I need Clean Master to manage power. I can't believe that devices w/ 3gb or RAM can still lag. I'm getting a Nexus in hopes that it will not need a nanny to manage power. If not, I'm ready to fore go the bells & whistles of Android, for a mature, competent, dependable, efficient iPhone.

    Android is very efficient, it just handles RAM like Linux, which is different than how Windows paradigm expects it to behave. You don't want to minimize RAM usage.

    It's not needed and it's actually detrimental. Clean Master (and similar apps) interfere with the normal processes which would reduce performance hiccups - and actually create them on their own.

    I feel the same way!!! All those bs security apps do nothing but slow down the system even more and with the Android, especially marshmallow already have built in security features.. I've owed the s5(great phone) and currently own the s7 edge with marshmallow which actually runs a built in security and maintenance check through the settings.. Now I was told you don't need the extra security apps even the bloatware that comes on the device.. After all someone pays to have there app become bloatware.. If I'm wrong someone please send a link or a thread to counter this claim. I'M all ears

    Yeah i wish i knew the answer as well! I did notice that I have a what looks to be a newer version of Google play and a older version..
    Im afraid to disable or uninstall..
    I can only assume that maybe since I use standard Google chrome aswell as beta chrome and I have 3 gmail accts. Aswell and somehow I have not synced the 2 chromes or my gmail acct... But I do feel that both are unnecessarily.. Especially since I feel my phone is dying way to quick!!!!!!!
