A lot of people always have problem with cellular signal or Wi-Fi connection, so you have to verify if its the phone that’s faulty and not the network provider. You can easily do this by using another phone to confirm if the fault is from the network. You can use a friend's phone to check this.
For the apps, you can reboot the phone to get it back to its normal working state.

There you can remove them, you can reduce the screen brightness, switch off the Bluetooth and the Wi-Fi in case you are not using them and reduce the timeout duration.
6. Perform A Factory Reset
This option is used to wipe off everything on the phone and return the phone back to the way you bought it new, you can then start afresh and reinstall all the app again. This option can be found in the settings at the backup and reset option.
