Advanced Task Killer or ATK is one of the most in demand Task Killer App for Android Devices, however interesting thing is that the developer of ATK didn’t claim that their app will improve your battery life. During our testing, we use these devices with full brightness and play HD Movies with Wi-Fi off and enable 4G, while Wi-Fi on Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

During testing, we go for Safe Setting form three available options, other two are Aggressive and Crazy. ATK on every device was assigned of killing apps after every half hour.
