Clean Master reclaims Android device resources by cleaning caches, closing apps and processes, and deleting junk files, leftovers, and other unnecessary items. Kingsoft's app enhances your security and privacy by scanning for malware, cleaning logs and other records, and enabling real-time protection and safe browsing. Its App Manager can back up and uninstall applications. It does all that and then some for free.

Clean Master scanned our system when we opened it and displayed our free storage and RAM space on its home screen above four tools: Junk Files, Memory Boost, Security & Privacy, and App Manager. We opened the Settings, which include toggles for Notifications, Junk Reminders, Task Reminder, and more. Clean Master packs a lot of extras, including Fun Extras such as animations and seasonal events. We could also access more important features such as the Ignored List. We also suggest perusing the FAQ files, which serve as a manual to Clean Master's functions. Junk scans come in two types: Standard and Advanced. The Standard scan cleaned 94.8MB on the first pass. The Advanced scan identified nearly 2GB of potential space; but most of that was media files we wanted to keep. The Memory Boost tool analyzes running apps and processes and identified those we could close. Tapping any item let us stop an app directly or add it to the Ignored List; pressing and holding adds apps to the Ignored List, directly. One advantage of the App Manager is the ability to sort items by size, date, name, or frequency.

We're impressed by Clean Master's ability to keep unnecessary apps and processes from slowing your device and compromising its security -- and yours.

"FREE and awesome phone booster"

October 18, 2014

 |  Version: Clean Master Free Optimizer 5.8.5

Pros

* Revives low-end phones.
* Cleans out app leftovers and optionally unneeded personal files.
* Awesome notifications toggle with minimal broom icon.
* Neat little magic broom widget overlay.
* Curved edges where the app meets the status bar.
* Awesome splash screen! It's few of the apps that have these on an android.
* Virus scanner, alerting those who have the SMS vulnerability fraud!
* Cheetah Mobile news to keep you informed about new vulnerabilities.
* Can get rid of bloatware on rooted phones! (Not compatible with SAMSUNG 4.3+)

Cons

* If notifications toggle is active, it disables expanded notifications by default in Android 4.1+. To workaround, you must be rooted with the Xposed Framework and install the "All notifications expanded" module (not to be confused with "All notifications expandable" module)
* Magic broom should be enabled for all apps by default, not just the launcher.
* Curved edges means no KitKat status bar APIs to adhere better to Android's material design.
* Splash screen makes low-end phones experience lag at startup.
* Only the splash screen integrates well with "Tinted Status Bar" Xposed Module, by setting the transparency to full. In all other activities, it doesn't integrate well.
* Please declare the SUPERUSER permission!

Summary

For those experiencing the "It does not even show the pre-installed software" on SAMSUNG devices, this is a restriction put since Android 4.3.

For those experiencing the "Does not uninstall factory apps" on non-rooted phones, then please root your phone to use this feature.

Overall, this is an excellent app. It helps revive low-end phones, and optimizes medium to high-end phones. Note, however that even though it does have a card-based design, especially in CM Now, it does not make use of KitKat APIs, so please note that. Also it does not declare SUPERUSER permissions for those who enforce the permission to grant it SuperUser access.

"best out there"

January 03, 2014  |  By sachinmohandas

 |  Version: Clean Master 3.8.0.337

Pros

it's fast and real time notification is very useful.one of the main advantage is that it gives you information about apps than can be stored in sd card,obselete apps empty folders and so much.must have it to have a clean and smooth running tab or phone

Cons

no cons so far

Summary

i like this app very much.i use a low end tablet so memory is a major factor.clean master gives up to date information about how much memory is my apps using and also gives warning along with boost if my memory usage becomes too high.it also helps to free up my tablet space as it cleans junk files and gives you information about apps that can be moved to your SD card at the finish of install itself.in my opinion it's a must have app for those who deserve a little more speed on their android device.5 stars all the way

"Not as useful as it sounds"

August 14, 2013  |  By trevorwood

 |  Version: Clean Master 3.7.0.303

Pros

Quick at doing what it does do

Cons

Won't uninstall pre loaded apps - my phone came with a load of apps that I don't use
Assumes you are using the device in portrait mode - loads sideways on my tablet - unforgivable these days

Summary

Don't bother - wait until it does what it says it'll do

"Good app that does most of what it is supposed to do."

August 13, 2013  |  By shaun45

 |  Version: Clean Master 3.7.0.303

Pros

Easy interface with good advice tags on what to and not to clean. Quick.

Cons

Does not uninstall factory apps - only their updates. In fact, on my Galaxy Note SHV 250E, it does not even show the pre-installed software. You often have to return to the opening menu between each single operation.

Summary

Very good, but I have a lot of pre-installed software that I don't/can't use that I would have liked to be able to get rid of. Perhaps something for future updates?
