    Hello, I have a Lumia 520. Over some time I've been having problems with apps force closing. Like they just stop responding and crash. Some even crash without any lag. :/ I guess its because of less RAM?

    I've done these things:
    - Soft reset.
    - Hard reset.
    - Restarted ofcourse.
    - Disabled all background apps except what's app.

    Apart from this when browsing net, tabs tend to automatically reload themselves when I switch to them. Can anyone help me out with that?

    Some apps i had these problems with are UC Browser, Get them all, Surprisingly tapatalk app too, what's app. :/

    Any fix or any suggestion is welcome... Thanks a lot. :D

    Have you tried a factory restart? Three people in my family have the 520/521, and none of them have this issue. You shouldn't be seeing the crashes.

    I did... That's what I meant by reset. I also did the soft reset which is done by power button and volume down... Unfortunately nothing...

    Can it have anything to do with memory free? I have 2 GB of memory left... RAM I don't know because we cant access it. :(

    Its quite weird. Anyways thanks for reply... Maybe they'll disappear after GDR2 update. Who knows.

    My bad...I would look through the comments in the store of apps that are giving you issues. Maybe you will find a trend and know what apps not to use. If there isn't any trends, I would do a factory reset again. Believe it or not, sometimes fixing a problem happens after doing it twice (speaking in general terms with experience with all the different smartphone OSes).
