    Default Regular maintenance suggestions?

    What do you, guys, do to maximize the available RAM and space? My phone is eight months old, but lately, virtually every day, Clean Master app reports that too much RAM is being used and too many junk files exist. I've been running Clean Master when suggested and taken to restart the phone every night. Still, it seems that none of that is enough. Any suggestions?

    Don't worry about the RAM being used up. Android purposely has much of used up and calls upon it when needed. My advice is to you is to delete any true junk files and then get rid of clean master. It will ALWAYS tell you that too much RAM is being used, unless you clear out the memory, which will momentarily make the message go away.

    One thing to keep in mind, RAM on Android does not act the same way as a desktop PC. Android actually like to have RAM full.

    On a related note, is there such a thing as defragging a phone?

    Nope. Android doesn't write data the same way as Windows.

    Anybody uses some kind of anti-virus app running in the background? Any thoughts on usefulness vs drain?

    Used to. Don't really have a problem with virus anymore. But AVG and Lookout were both pretty good for displaying what may pummel you with ads.

    I've got Avast and Malwarebytes installed, and they run from time to time (once a day, I think) which I'm not sure is necessary. BTW, Malwarebytes on my PC has saved me more than once when a virus disables your anti-virus program, but somehow it's immune to that and still runs.
