    Don't delete the Android folder that's where apps store most of their data.

    Not sure what yiziyun is, I can't find any info on that.

    DCIM is generally the default folder for any photos/videos you've taken with the devices camera.

    Yes, that folder is made by the emoji keyboard app, they are the fonts that have been downloaded for the keyboard.

    Lovoo "chat & flirt", that's a Chinese dating app, and I think Yizi Yun is possibly the online component of it. Yun means "cloud", as in Internet cloud.

    If your device is not rooted you should have very little concern about removing anything from the file manager that keeps the device from being operational because those files are made to be undeletable.
