I got one of those phone boosters for Android but it looks like it does not work very well because when I run a clean it stops at 88% or somewhere and immediately tells me that I have to clean again.

I figured that it is some kind of bug or that an app is using a lot of RAM and it can't be cleaned.

Is there a way to clean more RAM so my phone can get faster?

  • Oops, my bad :P I've personally found those phone boosters to be a load of hot air. I've never noticed any change in performance with my phone after running them. I would try running this app to see what is using so much RAM.

  • Well if you find out what application is using the ram the best option would be to uninstall it.

Most, if not all, of these phone/RAM booster apps are nothing more than a custom version of the stock Running Apps option already in Android. Thus, they themselves take up more RAM while not offering very useful functionality.I would recommend against using them. I hope you didn't have to pay for this app. TIP: I remember when I had a 512MB RAM phone Location services used to take up a lot of RAM. You can turn of all location services(GPS & Network based) when you don't need them.
