Android devices do not need regular maintenance but it is better to clean the system after sometime. It helps you in staying organized. Most of the apps for cleaning the system fills up the disk space and some even infect your phone with viruses.
Sam Murray, a UK based mobileindustry blogger and tech expert recommends that all Android users install Clean Master to keep their device in tip top condition:
"Clean Master has been my go to app over the last 12 months to keep my Nexus 5 running smooth. It has some great features including 1 click boost, junk file cleaner and a built in virus scanner. I run a regular clean each week just to rid my device of all the junk files and old APK's. After a fresh clean I see a noticeable difference in performance and the best thing about the Clean Master app is that it's free!"
