    No, not really, if you don't download stuff from dodgy sites.

    Don't install suspicious apps...

    Is Clean up Master app a best way of cleaning?
    Got lot of messages about cleaning. I read and use them, but looks like almost nothing happened regarding the cleaning.
    If it comes in contradictory situation, show me a best way!

    I have been using my OPO since september 2014 and I never did step 2 - clearing cache data (though I did wipe cache in recovery every now and then). So I junked up 3,2 GB of data in cache.

    After clearing that cache I've got 1,5 h of screen on time back. I mean I barely hit 4 h SOT with mobile data and now I do 5,5 h SOT (stock COS 12.1.1 / L) . With WLAN only probably more. Not as good as KitKat times but a lot more pleasant. :D

    The first option should be not to install apps every few days. If not being used, uninstall them.

    Mr. BG , Apr 17, 2016 :
    Flawed reasoning here. 25GB of apps will bring all sorts of crap into your system, just the fact that you have the space to install everything doesn't mean you should, and it certainly doesn't mean your device should be able to handle all the crap you throw at it.

    One is the system cache, the other is general caching by apps etc.

    You should clean both one in a while, I usually do it before I install a new system update, so say once in a month.

    You mean Clean Master, also known as CM by Softonic/Kingsoft?

    Do a Google search on Softonic, and remove all apps by them for the obvious outcome. They are probably one of the biggest spyware menace on the net...

    Funny how when we change a phone or flash a rom, suddenly a bunch of apps just don't make the cut. :D
