    Best case = pointless
    worst case = fixes things that weren't problems... causes other problems

    (same as on windows really)

    Even if it had any utility value (which it doesn't really), it's loaded with adware. I wouldn't touch it with a 15' pole (or Czech, for that matter. :eek: ;) )

    Read through its Google Play Store page and take note of what it claims to do, and then just look through the Settings menu of your phone to see what you can already do without having to install anything at all.

    Android does a fine job of managing ram, processes, and services. Best to just let it do its thing.

    I don't use any cleaning app on my phones but I have CCleaner installed on my Windows PCs for decade. It's a good Windows program so I think it's ok for your phone.

    But like others said, your phone doesn't really need this kind of app. You can use it for fun, provided that it doesn't come with ads.

    Android works without it better than with CCleaner
