Year 2018. The mid-range of Android is around 4 GB of RAM + 32 GB of internal memory, the high range dances between 4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM, and reaches configurations of 64 to 256 GB of ROM but… We continue using useless optimizers that are useless .
Touch, again, why you should not install an optimizer on your Android , and why users continue to install these applications on their smartphones . If you want to know the whole truth about these cleaners, stay with us.
Why you should never install an optimizer
Learn how RAM works
Before installing applications that clean RAM like crazy, have you stopped to think about how it works? RAM, as its name indicates -Random Access Memory-, is a temporary storage, to which the system has access at all times . It is a working memory, in which information related to all the processes that the phone has to manage is loaded.
If you open WhatsApp, the data will be sent to RAM, and in a later opening of the app, when the process is already loaded, it will open much faster . Applications need to work in the background, and even if you don’t believe it, this does not annihilate your battery or anything like that , since the system knows how to manage RAM. A separate case is that the application has a zero optimization , in which case the system itself cannot correctly manage the resources it demands, and this is when the problems arrive.
Android follows the maximum of “unused RAM, wasted RAM”. Have 2, 3 or 8 GB of RAM, more than half of these gigabytes will always be busy. Android distributes the processes to maintain the maximum possible information in the RAM , since it is the best way to manage the performance of the terminal.
The problem is that Android is free, and developers can screw up by making applications that demand too many resources . Applications such as Facebook are much more resource demanding than they should. By demanding so much from the system, it must allocate much of the RAM to processes such as Facebook, and take priority from others that should be active, but close so that the app can remain open.
These inconsistencies are what create problems, but the way to fix it is not to install a cleaner . You’ll understand it very easily, when you understand how a cleaner works, and what its true purpose is .
How cleaners work
The cleaners are basically to clean ... To earn money . Full of ads, sending information to Chinese servers to earn money (not all, but many), consuming more resources than they promise to save. Anyway. These applications have basic functions.
- Clear the cache of your mobile (the only thing they do well, and something you can do yourself from the settings)
- Clean large files (this is also done well, and so can you)
- Clean RAM memory (bad matter)
- Add a boost to your mobile (God knows what to go faster)
- Control your mobile battery (spend more than they save)
The issue is easy, Cleaners, such as Clean Master , eliminate all applications through a forced shutdown , not just remove them from multitasking. This implies an immediate consequence, the applications are reopened to occupy their space in the RAM , with the consequent expense of CPU and RAM.
“The boost they promise” is nothing more than the temporary increase in performance that can give a low-end phone to close processes. However, within a few minutes, everything will return to its course, so it makes little sense.
What to do to optimize your mobile
Optimizing the mobile does not happen by using third-party applications, but because you are the one who takes care of it . Do not install poorly optimized applications such as Facebook, take care once a month to clear the cache, close yourself large games or applications that will not run again in the background.
In this way, you will save battery, increase the performance of your mobile, and you will not have any problems , beyond the hardware limitations of your mobile.
