    DO NOT use any task killers, RAM memory optimizers/boosters, battery savers/repairers, cache cleaners, antivirus, etc etc. None of that stuff is necessary

    Most such apps are actually counterproductive and some are just plain evil. They actually waste power and may disrupt critical system processes and degrade performance. Not to mention the nag ads they throw up.

    Android is excellent at handling running processes and memory with no help from 3rd-party apps or user assistance.

    If you really want to learn about such things, see:

    It's a long thread with a lot of good information. To just catch some important points, read posts # 3, 23, 27, 31, 33 and especially 180.

    Just let Android do it's job as intended, relax and enjoy your phone.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    I believe that the general opinion is that yes, they work, in the sense that they kill tasks, but that the Android OS has then to restart those tasks, repeatedly if necessary, so that you end up worse off than you were before. But I could be wrong about that.
