A System Utility App is an App which cleans up junk files like cache files, stop background tasks for faster performance, and uninstall unwanted apps off your device. After you delete junk files, stop background tasks, and uninstall unwanted Apps in Google Android, your device like a smartphone, tablet, or settop box would have more free space, more free RAM/Memory, better performance, and fewer crashes, and random restarts.
After running a System Utility scans and repairs, your device should run faster like the day you bought it, or even faster than the day you first turned on your device.
Using a System Utility App to clear junk files like cache, ads, and leftover app data from uninstalled apps will free up space on your internal storage drive which will make your device have more space for installing other files, and Apps, and also increase the performance of your device if you had very little free space before the cleanup.
A lot of devices these days come with bundled pre-install apps like fitness/exercise, e-mail clients, and social networking apps which could slow down your device by using RAM, CPU, and internal storage. Sometimes, System Utility App can help you uninstall unwanted apps, or at least disable them if your device is not rooted, and needs to be rooted to uninstall apps like the email app which came with your device. Disabling and uninstalling unwanted apps which you don’t want on your device would increase your free storage space, and also saves data/bandwidth since once an App is uninstalled or disabled, it won’t run anymore, so it could not use bandwidth, and Google Play and other App stores can’t automatically update them in the background which can use a lot of data.
Many System Utility apps come with a task killer feature which stops background tasks which you don’t need to save battery life, and make Google Android run faster by having more free RAM, and CPU resources to run apps, and games at a faster speed with less slowdown problems, and random crashes or freezes. There are also game boosters which kill background tasks to make games run faster.
Some System Utility apps also come with an antivirus, and privacy protector to better protect your devices from security and privacy problems which can make your device unstable, and unsafe to use.
