    Default Do I really need a Memory Cleaner, Optimizer, and Antivirus?

    I have an LG Optimus F6 and was just wondering if I should install those types of apps.

    No to all except the last and then only if you're into doing really dangerous stuff with your device (turning on third party apps, downloading shady apps, etc).

    IMO, no on the memory cleaners, battery optimizers, and such, maybe on Antivirus. had Android since 1.6 and never had a problem with a virus or malware, BUT, I don't think a good Antivirus app can hurt.

    Some anti virus apps will flag you if a new app will flood you with ads and such. AVG used to flag apps like that and say excessive advertising. The others I would pass on.
