    I am using clean master and cm security... Are they really work? I mean removing the junk and providing security? Will they drain battery?
    Thanks..

    If you're using it as a malware cleaner, yes, but there are better ones. If you're using it to "clean" RAM, NO! Androd isn't Windows, it doesn't want a lot of free RAM. Free RAM is wasted RAM. It wants RAM as full as possible. So if Clean Master "cleans" an app out of RAM, and Android wants it in RAM, it'll reload it. Then Clean Master will "clean" it out again. Then Android will load it again. Etc., etc., etc.

    That eats your battery for lunch.

    So you suggest that not to clean the ram? Some times I get a warming saying that my processor is hot and need to cool it... Then it kills all the apps running and cools it down!!

    Same thing on my Moto G 2013 my phone will get hot when playing a game and surfing the web or watching YouTube and it says my CPU is at 154°!!!! So I don't know if it's just cm or cm security and it always says clean my ram so I do, but I don't know if that's true or not but any info on this will be great. And my battery dies really fast.

    Android OS does not need RAM management or app killers.

    Dear LaTuFu,
    Here we are discussing about weather they really do the job or its just a trick? Its wastage of space and battery? how relaiable are such apps?

    The FB app may be the worst app ever written. And FB doesn't really care, they have their billion users (about 100,000 of which are active). Try using FAST for FB instead and see if it helps.

    I think that some apps need a regular cache clearing more than a RAM management. The first in my mind are Chrome, FB ... And that can be done manually in the settings with no need of a cleaner app. By the way, your phone will be happier if you forget the FB app and access from the browser

    I used Ccleaner for a little while and uninstalled it. I consider those apps a waste of battery and resources.

    A regular cache clearing and rebooting the phone at least once a week improves performance.

    I agree I used these apps for a while and pointless as I then done some reading and learned how Android utilises ram.

    Clearing cache through a reboot or recovery is enough for me and overall better for my phone.
