    "I really hate apps like this. My wife insisted on installing it. There's nothing I can do to explain to her that this is snake oil. You want all your apps to sit in memory. It's fast to load them from the SD card and just have them sit there until you want to execute them. That's how the android OS works best. And yet, here it is, on my phone, because, God love her, my beloved believes that because it exists, it must be needed. I guess that worked out for me, so I can't complain too much."

    "Does not work well, the purpose of these apps are to clean unneeded files but the also clean needed mandatory processes which ultimately slows down the phone and causes more crashing in some cases. This app is no better or wrose than the other on that, but i do not recommend. "

    "This is ok. I've never really had much luck with cleaners, so I usually just keep a few apps on the phone to prevent any bloat. This cleans up some things, though really the cache cleaner is about the most useful. I'm not really caring for it though, really needs more work."

    #10Delete some apps

    Delete some apps

    You will have to do a quick search on your phone. Remember that app you downloaded one day for a reason you now forget? Here it is! Probably these kinds of apps are freezing your Android phone. Also, if you have a hacker/virus problem, this method can be very helpful. There is a chance that you have a malicious app on your device and hadn't noticed it before doing this cleanup.

    Charge the battery

    It can happen that your Android device run out of battery and, instead of just turn off, it gets frozen. You can start charging the battery of your phone, wait a few minutes and see what happens.

    #14Restart your phone

    Restart your phone

    Sometimes the classic way is the best way. Just press the button and wait till the screen of your device turns black. Then do it again, until it starts shinning again. Old trick, but it works almost every time.
