    Will it be helpful if i use greenify to hibernate those facebook and messenger app? I mean i can always manually stop them but greenify seems to do it job well. I have it on my Moto G turbo and it works well on this.

    I avoid the facebook app altogether. It was a big battery hog on my previous phone so won't use again

    Greenify is great, but my advice is to free yourself of this crap and use Metal for Facebook

    It drains not only your battery, also your memory and other resources, and it sucks every bit of info about you to Mr. Suckerberg.

    Don't want to bother but, care to explain why shouldn't you root on the very first day?

    As explained earlier in this thread: try to minimize the variables that can mess up your device. If you start with rooting and you encounter bugs, you can't really tell if the phone is faulty or if it's because something went wrong during the process of rooting.

    I'd say: first get to know everything of your device, all the possibilities and bugs. Then start playing with rooting and custom roms :)

    Sorry folks, missed a few it seems, busy doing other stuff.

    Still no updates yet? You should get them OTA, if not, there are several threads on installing manually and where to find the downloads.

    First make sure your device works as it should, actually....

    This is exactly the right answer.

    This setup system is based on the thought of minimising variables, so if something goes wrong it is easier to backtrack what caused the problems.

    Edit: thanks Bart, I'll add this to the starting post :)

    Same here, no worries, it only detects CPU usage above a certain threshold.
