It is way too bloated with features that don't make any sense. Android does memory management quite well now so the need for a memory cleaner is actually not that necessary anymore. If you really want one I suggest you use CCleaner as it does the same with next to no bloat (and ads IIRC).
Clean Master is horrible. It does clean, and so far as I can tell, it does a better job of it and has a more intuitive interface than any of the other cleaners - even Crap Cleaner. But all the ads and self-promotion and SEE WHAT YOUR FRIENDS ARE USING and YOUR DEVICE IS RUNNING AT 180°F YOU BETTER DOWNLOAD MY TEMPERATURE WIDGET is too much to deal with.
CCleaner works as well on Android as it does on PC. If there's something that it doesn't catch in a normal scan & clean (e.g., Reddit is Fun for me), you can always add it manually.
1- as long as you carefully vet the apps you download, there's no need for any antivirus. Also, pretty sure there's no legit android antivirus software anyway, so if you see some, it's probably bullshit
2- no. I used ccleaner only because I kept running out of storage space and I'm obsessive.
3- only one that I know does is greenify. but that requires root
4- you should just need your phone's usb drivers, which are typically found on the manufacturer's website somewhere.
5- maybe? probably not. There's definitely not any updates by samsung, and the phone is so obscure that I doubt there is any modder/developer that has ported newer software to it
6- under system settings there should be a factory reset setting or something
7- uh what? not sure what you mean
8- like I said check out greenify. If you're rooted, it's also a pretty good idea to get supersu so you can keep track of which apps are asking for root access. If you search for it in the subreddit, you'll find tons of threads about good rooted apps
Glad you're excited about your new phone and merry Christmas dude :3
> - Compatible with Android devices that have 2GB RAM or more and have Android Version 4.4 - 6.0 installed.
Taken from google play store page. But while it runs on 1GB which is what your phone has factory, I'd say it would run better if you had a different phone.
Your phones Specs
Edit: Also try this Ccleaner I've used Ccleaner on my pc for years, so I can attest to it's validity as an app. I think there's a setting that boots your RAM (You can't get more ram than your phone has, it just allows you to close programs you don't need when playing Pokemon Go to free up some resources)
I use the CCleaner app. It will clean all the cache at once for you. Or you if you upgrade to their paid version, you can run it on a schedule to clean your phone.
The "Other" category consists of items in the Secure Folder, app caches, and other hidden files. You can clean out these app caches using apps like CCleaner or SDMaid. You can also back up existing photos and videos in your gallery to Google Photos for free. If all else fails, you can use a SD card for more storage - if you have an SD card slot in your phone.
I hope this helped! Feel free to ask any questions.
Check settings to see the amount of space that is taken up.
Also check this app to see if you can clean up what's on there
The Nexus 9 and Pixel tablets are pretty much the best stock android ones currently.
There's really only two that are worth using, and be aware that have limitations (and that's a good thing).
ccleaner does a decent job of making space management faster. It's reliable and non invasive. A bit weak in settings flexibility, and misses a few desires that are helpful. But it's really solid with what it does.
sdmaid is a bit more flexible, has a great system for finding leftover junk files that escape manual clean up, and can be used to manage space with a separate file explorer (though I can't say it's function for file management is great beyond that). It's fast, easy to use and is very well developed. The dev is active as heck (here in Reddit as well as with updates). It's probably one of the better designed apps of any type you'll run across. It also catches files left behind after an uninstall better than anything else I've found.
More important though, are the ones you avoid. Cleanmaster (and anything by their company cheetah mobile) or anything claiming to "boost" ram or cool your device.
But, if all you want/need is clearing cache, you can do that in settings manually faster settings> storage and find the cache section for internal storage (the exact layout varies some between android version and brand, but it's in there).
Oh yeah, for the price there's next to nothing that beats the Moto G! I've got the 1st gen Moto X and, even with 16Gb, I run out of storage all the time. Must be tough with only 8. Family pics and videos take up lots of space when you have kids, haha! Google Photos backup is a lifesaver, I use it all the time.
Something that may help is CCleaner. It's kind of a last resort, but if you're installing and uninstalling apps as you need them it's probably worth having. If you are getting a bunch of insufficient storage messages you can use it to clear out a nice chunk of storage for you. It'll do things like clear out extra App caches, which normally take up a few hundred megs. They'll get built back up over time, but you can run it occasionally to keep a bit of extra space. Plus CCleaner is a reputable application from the PC side of things, and it only takes up about 5-6 megs installed. Might be worth a try!
I use CCleaner. No bloatware, it's free, and it does a solid job at purging app caches and other files that are typically not needed. I have also heard good things about SD Maid, but I'm happy with CCleaner.
For all people who are looking for a solution: Try the app Ccleaner. It found the culprit for me, which was Telegram with 79 GB...
Android/ Google Files couldn't show me the hidden data because I uninstalled Telegram half a year ago.
CCleaner helped me. I had uninstalled telegram half a year ago and couldn't find anything in the storage to clean it. It only showed me that I supposedly had 94GB of system storage, which is of course absurd. But Ccleaner was able to find and delete the files.
Hello, I explain to you in this version of Android the cache of applications is accumulated a lot and the only way to eliminate it completely is to use the Ccleaner application. You don't need to use the pro version, just the basic version. You give in analyze and give permission and mark the option that says hidden cache. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.piriform.ccleaner
I hate that too. I use CCleaner, it can automatically detect "empty folders" and then delete them.
Here's a link to the app if you wanna give it a shot.
I'd recommend clearing your cache, using CCleaner or if you're running Nougat or higher you can clear cache in the storage settings. Cache can build up over time and occupy a lot of space. Hope that helps!
Does your phone still have the Smart Manager (Settings > Smart Manager)?
If you do have some space left, you can also try the CCleaner app. It's pretty good at detailing what's taking up how much space.
CCleaner will help delete most of the cache problems you're having but for some apps you need to manually delete it, via Settings/Apps/..., for example instagram and snapchat.
That's probably what happened with the apk installers. The CCleaner app works just like the Boost+ app the other user mentioned (not sure if boost+ is available for the M8). It'll go through and delete old cache files and temp files that get left behind.
Lots of 'cleaning' apps out there that suck and do nothing. Only one that is kinda working and not spamming for in app purchases is ccleaner.
It seems from the screen shots that it has file and cache cleaning. Yeah, I completely agree with you that these cache management programs arebad - they actually waste battery because you'll have to reload the app on relaunch. Sad to see how far CCleaner has fallen.
You could try uninstalling via CCleaner and see if that helps. I'm not sure on the technical aspect, but I've had it help with clean remove of items (both Android and PC) in the past.
Hey if you're still looking for an app uninstaller, I'd give the CCleaner app a try. Probably the easiest/simplest one to uninstall or freeze apps, plus has the added benefit of being a cache cleaner among many other useful tools. Never was of fan of Titanium backup, it's powerful yes but it still looks ugly to me and can be confusing to use at first.
And yeah AdAway and Greenify are a must if you have root.
Basically, the app shows and tells you wonderful things, like it freed up x amount of space, when it really doesn't.
It's also filled with bloatware and unnecessary permissions. If you really need an app to clear cache, I'd recommend CCleaner.
Also, the company that makes the app, Cheetah Mobile, is very well known for making sketchy apps that sell your information.
Check out CCleaner. I left CM apps behind after they added all the junk. GSam Battery Monitor is a nicer Battery Doctor alternative.
Use Ccleaner for Android instead of CleanMaster or any other crapware filled apps.
Interface is as simple as the windows version.

CCleaner is free, easy to use, and it works fast. It can also give you back a lot of storage space that other apps can't seem to get rid of.
Thanks for the tip! Know we will see how this will compare to CCleaner and Cleaner Master.
Alright, I had this problem on my phone, I'm on iOS, but in principle I'd think it would work the same. I used an app called iCleaner that clears out the game data entirely, all cache files, all downloaded content--basically everything but the app itself--and it does this more so than the BF app itself has permissions to within the OS. If you could find an Android app that does the same, would you mind trying it. Worst thing that could happen is you'd have to reinstall BF.
I'd like to see if there is an Android solution for this as well. Android being a *nix system like Linux and OS X, when you delete an app, you have to also delete the .plist-type, cached, and library files with it to fully get rid of it, much like the Windows registry. So, if you can find an app that will fully delete BF and all associated filed, you may be able to get rid of the left over whatever files on the phone that is corrupting the install of the newest BF client.
Edit: Also if you have root, this will be much easier

Using anything else instead lately? CCleaner is one of my essential programs to have on Windows so it made my day when I found out there's an Android version.
ccleaner. Its finally on android and gets rid of stuff that actually needs to be gone without all of the other BS bells and whistles.
If you have enough space to download and install CCleaner, run that to clear all your apps' caches in one go.
Another way to go is to use FX File Explorer, which has the ability to scan for and delete duplicate files and just "large files."
If you take a lot of photos/videos, consider having them automatically back up to Dropbox or Google+, and then you can delete those from your phone without fear of losing them forever.

Clean Master has a shady history. Many have switched to CCleaner.
CCleaner is really good and prettier than SD Maid if you're all about the looks.

CCleaner or Clean Master
I had the same problem the other day i used this and it worked a dream
CCleaner is my fave...
Use CCleaner. It will most likely clear up a few GB's of cache.
Could be cache, try installing CCleaner And see if that helps.
What about CCleaner? I've used the desktop version for a while now.
I use Ccleaner
CCleaner and SDMaid
Use Ccleaner and tell us how it goes
I like CCleaner, and it does have a quick clean widget.
Have you tried CCleaner app?
You mean like CCleaner for Android?
This app will help give you a breakdown of where its all gone and offer to clean it up.
Some people have mentioned CCleaner in the past but I personally have not used it since the Nexus 6P days: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.piriform.ccleaner&hl=en\_US&gl=US
you can use tools like CCleaner to clear cache easily and other junk files you may have.
CCleaner is the best, no nonsense, straightforward cleaner out there.
It's a memory issue. CCleaner is your friend.
CCleaner is the best out there: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.piriform.ccleaner
This might be silly, but... I bet if you don't use it, it won't crash. :)
If you really want to use a cleaning app, then try something like CCleaner (hint: The "c" in CCleaner=... as in Cr@pCleaner)
