My Android Phone starts Freezing Regularly - battery has to be removed for reboot
Posted on 2011-10-14
I have an Android Phone (Version 2.2.1).
The phone is a Samsung Galaxy Fit. I am running the original OS that came with the phone (no upgrades) and I am finding that progressively over time it requires to be rebooted. The screen freezes and I need to take the battery out.
I am thinking that some evil application is using up all the CPU / memory / battery life but after deleting all sorts of Apps from my start up the problem persists.
Is there a good way to diagnose what the evil app might be? Can I reboot the phone without removing the battery? I have installed Android Booster to give me optimization information and taken some of its advice (not sharing my location). I have also installed Traffic Monitor to see if an App is using up my bandwidth behind the scenes. Any other suggestions?
When I search the web for others with this problem I find posts from angry Android owners but nothing that looks like a solution in my case.
