    Hi,
    I was just wandering if anybody knows, are files left behind when apps are uninstalled and will that build up? Eventually slowing the phone down? Or is it a completely clean uninstall?
    Thanks

    Most often it is a clean uninstall. Getting an app like Clean Master from Play will help with residual files.

    Sometimes a folder with some logfiles might be left behind. It shouldn't slow the device down, but if you're low on storage space, it might help to remove them. As Golfdriver97 mentioned, Clean Master can be helpful. All-in-One Toolbox also has a cleanup feature--when you uninstall an app, it can alert you if there are leftover files/folders.
