    I have a EVO 4G from Sprint, and I've been downloading apps like a madman. My Advanced Task Killer has gone from like 1 or 2 apps killed to anywhere from 9-30+ killed now. I feel that I have bloated my phone even though I have uninstalled all the apps I haven't needed/been using.

    My question is the Android Linux-based OS get bloated like Windows where info just keeps piling up until it just starts glitching?

    If I have to do a reset, I would rather do it now than later...

    Please advise me on the best way to go about this. I have a LOT of apps... also, what is the best auto app killer? I have Advanced Task Manger as well that does it like every 30 minutes or an hour or so.

    Thanks. Any other advise... please speak up.

    I would say to do a hard reset on it. Menu, settings, privacy, factory data reset. When it comes back up. Log into your Google account. Go to the market. Go to downloads. Start installing only the programs you want. Don't leave the downloads page or they will disappear. You don't need a task killer btw.
