    Hi, I've got a friend that has a sprint galaxy note 4 and he seems to think he should install clean master to speed up and clean his phone and kill task. I personally told him no, but he's dead set with it. If he chooses to use this, what would be the proper settings he should use. I can't tell him because I don't use that application. Should he set it up to kill task or just to clean old files?

    Just clean old files. Android does quite well with self clearing RAM. And RAM on Android is different from RAM on a Windows PC.

    Do not use task killers on Android especially new and powerful phones like Note 4. They can cause apps to malfunction and are getting in the way of the OS functioning properly, trust me i am a Computer Science Major so the way that linux based systems work is very different than Windows and whatever RAM the system uses it does not slow down your phone! If your phone slows down it is because of a faulty app, a badly written code. I suggest you dont even look at RAM usage as it is not important just use your phone and enjoy it without worrying about RAM consumption, remember that Android will manage your resources the proper way, surely the guys at clean master or whatever app are not smarter than Google engineers.

    What happens with a task killer is that it eventually kills a task that Android wants to keep in RAM. Android reloads the task. The task killer kills it. Android reloads it. ...

    Your phone slows to a crawl and your battery loses power like a strainer loses water. You're trying to get both ends of a see-saw (teeter-totter) down at the same time - something is going to give.

    In Android, unused RAM is wasted RAM. Keeping RAM clean is wasting it. It shows that the person who wrote the app doesn't understand how Android works (or even did a quick web search to find out), so I wouldn't trust any app written by that person or company.
