    No. Anybody saying otherwise is just minsinfored and drank too much Kool-aid.

    Antivirus is debatable. They can't reallt protect your phone, since they are an after the fact (installation) fix, and really can't help if the app installed itself as system. They do help in preventing your phone from becoming a carrier for PC viruses though. And the accomoanying anti-theft features are useful.

    No, definitely not. Android can look after running processes well enough without a memory cleaner. In fact it can have a negative effect, some apps and processes are in memory for a reason.

    Finally, Android/Linux doesn't rely on free RAM to run better or faster so don't think that you need to free RAM up for that reason.

    haven't used the in built app ever. Wasn't using one on iOS and won't use one on android. If the OS starts getting slow because I haven't cleaned files, I'll switch OS then.
