    All you have to do if want to clear cache go into settings and storage, or reboot into recovery and clear cache there i do that once a week, no need for CLEAN MASTER.

    I am so mad that some carriers are using Cheetah Mobile and that Google is allowing them to stay in the Play Store.

    Back a few years ago when Clean Master was developed, Android also didn't handle RAM as well and Clean Master wasn't an evil app.

    Things have changed on both fronts.

    Don't think of Android RAM like Windows RAM. The newer phones and newer Android OS, actually function better on a full RAM.

    I think TMO knows also, CM probably paid a pretty penny to get TMO to add it on.

    With my previous Samsung phones (which have been all my android phones) before my Note 4 and S5 before rooting, I constantly pulled up the task manager and cleared the RAM.

    The "full RAM = happy phone" takes a while to get used to.

    I always have at least 5 apps running in the background. I only close out (most of the time) the ones I open and rarely use.

    Yes agree DON'T EVER USE CLEAN MASTER VERY VERY VERY BAD! had to put that in caps!
    Ok clear you cache, it doesn't matter how you do it. Clean master or every another app or just do it yourself. Android do make junk files, I am not talking about RAM and I don't care about it. There is 4 gb available

    Yessss you can do it and I meant that. There is no problem about RAM management.

    Yes it does matter, Clean Master is not good. Listen to the entire video, just one or two problems with CM and Cheetah Mobile.



    Your cache is what uses RAM that your OS and apps aren't using.

    You very rarely need to clear your cache. I never did on my Note 4, haven't done it with my Note 5.

    The ONLY cache clear I ever do, is wiping cache partition after an update.

    And I don't do it once a week, your phone rebuilds that cache. I only use wipe cache for updates or problems. Myself, I don't do it for any other reason.

    Here's the list, you don't have to do all of this, for example I disabled Samsung voice because it's not useful for me.
    1.Disable GPS, Bluetooth, NFC and turn them on when necessary
    2.Disable Wi-Fi calling
    3.Disable voice over LTE : on phone application go to more, settings. Find Voice over lte settings and set it do not use volte
    4.Disable all motions: settings, motion and gestures, turn all 4 options off
    5.Disable SVOICE and Shealth app
    6.Disable all Google useless services
    7. Use black wallpapers for screen and lock screen
    8.Go to location setting and turn off Google location history
    9.Turn 4g data off when using Wi-Fi or don't need Internet
    10.Turn useless vibrations and sounds off
    11.Go to developer settings and turn all animations off
    12.Go to Wi-Fi settings, more, advanced and turn always allow scanning off
    13. Use auto mode for display light
    14.If you don't using Samsung printer service Disable it, on settings, connection, more connection settings, printing, Samsung print service plug-in
    15.This is just an advice, don't use more than one application for one task, you don't need 2 calculators or 2 pdf readers and so on..
    16. Use clean master every week and Uninstall it after that. Just clean junks with it
    17.Turn backup data and auto sync off
    18.Go to smart manager, ram, manage apps and auto stop apps you don't want to run on background, for example an application like what's app needs to run on background but games or pdf readers don't.
    19. Do not use Google Chrome if you can. The default browser is so good and support fingerprint sign-in which is a nice feature.
    20. Be smart, use do not need Gmail app,yahoo mail app, and ... to manage your emails (this is just an example) you can install an application like k@mail to control all your email accounts with just 1 application , same thing for note taking and ...


    Hope you find this useful, tell me if any of this tips worked for you.
    Thanks for the great summary! This was exactly what many of us were hoping for.

    Exactly. That list is absurd. I've done zero things on that list, my battery lasts all day with 4-5 hours of screen on time.

    How many of those things have actually proven to save battery life, and exactly how much?
    4 to 5 hours of screen on time? Lol. So what apps do you use and why are you in this thread. Just to tell people you have great battery life?
