For today, we have Systweak Android Cleaner, one of the new Android optimizer apps on the block. Its competition includes the well-known Cheetah Mobile’s Clean Master (Boost & Applock). The purpose of these apps is to increase the device’s performance by periodically clearing cached memory, deleting junk files, and managing storage.
Setup for Systweak is quick and easy. Just head over to Google Play and download and install the app. Open it, and you’ll be met with the main screen.
Features and Functions
Systweak includes the following: phone boost, a junk files manager, a battery saver, a storage manager, and an app manager.
With phone boost, you can end running background services and their cache in order to give the system memory back. This can be done automatically at set intervals.
The junk files manager cleans external application cache and temporary files. Here, you are able to recover space from APKs, the ten largest files, and browser data.
The battery saver manages the parts of the OS that drain the battery the most (such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, background services, and auto-sync), allowing for an extended battery life of up to 50%.
And lastly, the app manager can perform two functions: archiving an app and uninstalling it. When you archive an app, a backup of its application files is created. This process frees up internal storage. You can restore the files whenever needed under the “Archived” section.
Systweak certainly is well-designed with an interface that is in line with material design. Also, I liked that I could automate Phone Boost to work every two, four, six, or eight hours and that I could specify which parts of the OS Battery Saver targeted.
I did not necessarily dislike anything about the app. However, as a suggestion, it would be a nice addition if users had the option to have Phone Boost optimize their devices as soon as they are turned on.
What We Like
Beautiful, intuitive design
Ability to automate Phone Boost
Can choose which services Battery Saver manages
What We Don’t Like
Not exactly a negative, but optimization upon turning on the device would be nice
To conclude, Systweak Android Cleaner is a really good optimizer app. Although it has not been on the market as long as the aforementioned Clean Master has, it definitely holds its own. It does not have as many features as that one does either, which go beyond the expected optimization. For example, Clean Master has built-in anti-malware protection. However, don’t be concerned by that, especially if you already have an anti-malware app or just need the features Systweak provides.
