    RAM cleaning is unnecessary.

    Wow I read that whole article I guess that any task killers such as clean master and / smart manager are bad for your device you should let it just run how it's supposed to run and I should just disable smart manager and use my phone how it is

    So by saying that does that mean that my phone battery will improve and that smart manager doesn't help anything even thoe it's pre-installed so this means that APP KILLERS ARE A BIG FONY PEICE OF JUNK

    Should I keep knock active protection on to help my phone or does it just drain my battery ? IDK if it helps my phone or not tell me if I should keep it on or just turn it off.

    Yes, uninstall Clean Master. It's not particularly useful, and can be counterproductive, as I explained above.

    The Cell Standby shows no Time without Signal, so at least you're not getting into areas where your carrier signal is completely absent. But it still might be poor in some areas. What happens if you tap the battery graph--do you get a fullscreen graph with a Cell Signal Strength indicator bar at the bottom?

    Hello! This is the setting in Nova launcher that allows nova to pull down your notification shade. So if you are using Nova, you should keep this enabled so that the launcher can do its job.

    Hi, in your settings menu, under display do you have anything that indicates "sleep" or "display time out" I'm not too familiar with the settings menu of the Prime, but I would imagine it would be in there somewhere.

    If the phone's own battery graph doesn't show you the cell signal strength, you could install GSam Battery Monitor, which does.

    Is Smart Manager a Samsung preinstalled app? If so, you can't remove it. I don't know much about Knox, so I can't comment on how it affects battery and overall performance. If Lookout was preinstalled, you also won't be able to uninstall this app either--but Lookout has a free version and a paid version, and there's generally no need to get the paid version. The free version has basic antivirus scanning abilities and a couple of other features. On my wife's Note5, I have it set only to scan apps when they're installed, but turn off the scheduled scans (since I feel that scheduled scans don't add anything to your security).

    Here's info on Smart Manager: What is the Smart Manager application on my Samsung Galaxy S6, and how do I use it?. It looks like it still has some useful functions (like giving you easy access to power saving modes and freeing up storage space). The "Manage RAM" part will be like Clean Master, and should be avoided.

    If it can be disabled, you'd have to go to the App Manager, select Smart Manager, and look for the Disable button. If a Disable button isn't available, then the app can't be disabled--this can be the case for certain preinstalled apps.
