    Is your phone a Tmobile phone?

    Clean Master used to be a good product and necessary, long ago. It was bought by bad people and isn't a necessary thing for Android anymore. I'm really upset with Tmobile for putting it on the phones.

    I have Clean Master disabled on my phone, but not Smart Manager. The reason I haven't disabled Smart Manager is because if it is disabled the percentage of my battery charge doesn't show in my status bar.

    Carriers preload a lot of crap that isn't necessary and can actually interfere with many things. I wouldn't use anything in Smart Manager, except Knox and only if you have a need to use that because your phone is a work phone also and they require it.

    You can clean data by going into Settings/General/Storage/Cache and saying Yes. It'll clean out your app cache.

    You can copy data (pictures, documents, videos, etc.) to a computer, a cloud storage account (or both) and delete it from the phone (once you make sure the copies are okay).

    There is really not a reason to clear the cache unless there is a problem with an app.

    Clearing the cache will slow down the phone when using this apps until it builds up the cache again..

    Let me show you this Kevin.

    I have this much cache, not even much free RAM. Android runs better on a full RAM. All this stuff in the cache, it will just build up again as soon as it is cleared, same thing with individual apps.

    The cache is there to help things load faster on your phone. Think of it as less of the app that has to load when you open it each time, because some of it is partially loaded and waiting the next time you use it. If I have an app that isn't acting correctly, I will clear the cache of the individual app, but only if there is a problem.

    This isn't like Windows where too much RAM is in use or a high cache slows things down.

    So don't clean cache or ram only clean it separately when an app is acting up or after an update?

    Well I do a wipe cache after small updates, which is done in recovery mode.

    You shouldn't have to clean the RAM. I reboot my phone about once every two weeks just for the heck of it. The cache I don't worry about unless a particular app is acting up.

    Like the security update I get every month on my phone. A small in size update, or going from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1. When updating from KitKat to Lollipop, I did a full reset, as I will when Marshmallow comes out.

    Owned by T-Mobile so I'm guessing their phones have the same set up.

    1. Should I keep the smart manager app does it help your phone or is it just like clean master it makes your phone slow?

    2. How do you disable Smart Manager or at least how do u make it stop working?

    Posted via the Android Central App
    You can disable it using Package Disabler Pro.

    Now if you disable it, the battery percentage will not show in your status bar AND you can not get to your battery stats screen. Just leave it, it does nothing on its own.

    I have disabled the Cheetah files, which are Clean Master.

    Just ignore Smart Manger, it just sits there but is necessary to display battery stats.

    Yes with an update I wipe the cache partition. No it doesn't do anything to the phone that you notice.

    1. You don't want to "clean RAM" in Android - it wants as much RAM used as possible. (It's not Windows.)

    2. Nothing wrong with clearing cache, but the mount in use is usually going to be so small as to not matter. Apps normally clean their own caches.

    3. Misc. data is the data your apps are storing for themselves, like scores, positions in the game, etc. Clear that and you could lose progress in something.
