Is there a better app to use then CCleaner to keep useless folders.
I've heard of SD Maid to clean up old stuff but not used it in a while. It does come highly recommended.
Perhaps others who use it more than I do can comment
SD Maid? I'll check it out.
One of the few that seem to have legitimate uses is SD maid but I only say that on the experience of other members and staff who have had positive results with it. Frankly, the whole cleaning and optimizing category of apps is a pile of steaming ... smoke and mirrors, with just enough snake oil thrown in.
At best, they might be able to delete some orphaned files and gain a little space, at worst they are malware disguised as utilities to gather personal information about the user.
Personally, I couldn't recommend any of them.
EDIT: Double ninja'ed ... at least I provided a link.
That's kinda what I was wanting to know. I just go to my file manager for the most part. I just noticed over the last week that my phone seems to run a little slow. But I'm not rooted so I can't really do a whole hell of a lot. LG Stylo 2 running Nougat 7.0 and I have a 32gb SD card. I've cleared alot of the bloat ware off my phone. But it's still kinda slower then when I got it
Honestly, the best way to clean up a phone is to perform a factory reset and reformat the user partition. You start from scratch. And then you reload only what you need.
Most of what people consider bloat (carrier or manufacturer installed apps) take up only space if you don't use them. They rarely affect performance. Disable them without root and they are as good as gone.
That's what I've done. I reset my phone about a month or so ago.
So once you reset the performance was restored? or it was still poor. If the former, then you've probably got a app that's hogging resources and gets reinstalled (like Facebook ) If the latter it might be a hardware problem, or possibly something with a version update. Have you upgraded the OS in this phone?
It was working fine but I think I may have bogged it down with apps for photo editing. And Facebook is one of the fin apps on my phone I can only disable it. Can't install. And I am as updated as Boost will let me

Hello there and welcome!!
Perhaps you can elaborate a little more clearly on what your issue is, and the device make/model/carrier/android version you have, and we can spin your post/s into your own thread
