These running processes can cause some significant lag or delay while loading apps, playing games, etc.

While Android as an OS manages these processes automatically, there’s a way to manually limit the background process as per the need. By limiting the background process, users tell the operating system not to run in the background, processes that keep on consuming unnecessary resources.
