Hey, newbie here wondering about all these apps in the Google Play store. More specifically I'm talking about the Utilities apps. Lookout was my first download, followed closely by Advanced Task Killer. Then the trouble began when I went looking for file managers. It seems as if half the reviews and articles I read live and die with Astro while the other half would bet vital organs that ES File Explorer is better. It's even worse with battery savers, with about 5-6 apps claimed to be the best, some say "by far". It seems like the more research I do, the more certain I am I picked the wrong one. I decided I probably couldn't go wrong and left my phone as-is. Then I stumbled across Advanced Mobile Care today, which basically claims to do all of that by itself. Five star user ratings and tech reviews seem to back that up. WTF? Basically my question is: Is all this as complicated as I make it look in the first paragraph or is it actually as simple as the second paragraph? Phone space isn't exactly plentiful for me so I'd like to believe there really is a legitimate "jack of all trades" utility sufficient enough to handle all those tasks at such a reasonable price (it's free). I simply don't buy a word of that, though, especially with IOBit designing it. They cornered the market for PC programs that do everything possible as mediocre as possible. 1- What should I do? Listen to the Advanced Mobile Care reviews or listen to my gut? Is it even serviceable as a compliment to stand-alone apps? 2- Do any of the file managers, battery savers, program launchers, malware removers, task killers etc etc etc REALLY stand out from other similar apps? 3- Is there any cocktail of apps that anybody would recommend, or are they really as redundant as my research is telling me? 4- Final question: After all this, who wants to help me with my next project of choosing a flashlight? That last one was a joke. Sorry for the long post, but I did a ton of research which, so far, has only served to drive me crazy (and that's not a very long drive). Any help would be appreciated.
