@yashthakur1 it depends on the the type of stuff you need to preserve in your context. The way I typically think about it is if it is stuff related to the lifecycle of an activity then use Activity Context otherwise use Application Context. Application context is there for the lifetime of the app. So, it survives activity lifecycle probably that's what you need. As a side note, don't keep presumably memory leaky stuff.
in your Application Context.. keep it lightweight.
