    I admit it! I wipe the cache partition weekly and run device maintenance daily. I also clear individual apps cache sometimes and maybe their data too. I don't even care if some people say there's no reason to!!!

    Am I the only clean freak out there??

    I definitely clear the cache at least once a week too. Lol. If you want to take your neurosis a step further, check out SD maid. It's not a task killer. It scans the phone for unused folders and crap that is left over from unistalled apps. I like to test out apps a lot so I'll download something and if I don't use it, I delete it. This seems to clean up a lot of that junk. It won't delete anything that is needed. I have a feeling you might like this app. Lol

    I think I own the paid version of that. It works on non-rooted phones right?

    Leftovers from uninstalled apps is my biggest target. The thought of digital debris hanging around do nothing drives me crazy

    wow that sounds awesome. That's my biggest pet peeve for my phone. I'll have to give that app a try myself. I don't have an SD Card in my phone though. I have most everything saved in my Google Cloud.

    What I always do is keep my file manager hany, and manually go through all of my directories,and clean out junk files which i enjoy doing and keep everything clean and streamlined.

    I've been known to delete the entire "Android" folder in My Files. It rebuilds itself when you reboot.

    I reboot once a week. I clear cache only if an issue pops up or after a system software update.

    I close all apps except Textra/Hangouts since I don't like clutter in my recent apps list. That is about it.

    I use Device Maintenance daily and try to clear cache once a week. I also restart at least once a week.

    I wouldn't want anyone to think such a practice is generally necessary, but it seems harmless if you don't mind doing it (or if you even enjoy the ritual).

    Hehehe saved me from typing. I do the exact same thing but leave default messaging app, whatsapp, and inbox for Gmail open. That's it.

    Would the increased read/write activity due to frequent cleaning lead to accelerated internal or external (SD Card) storage wear and tear?

    I believe it's an edge Soo which costs $2 from the Galaxy app store.

    This might increase wear and tear (as I understand a deletion is considered a write). I think it would be more noticed on an SD card as the life cycles on those are less than internal storage.

    I don't keep a device long enough to worry about this. You won't wear it out in 12 months or less.
