Device Care - optimize your Galaxy smartphone

Awesome. Cohesive, comprehensive, effective. One of the best if not the best app you can have installed on your mobile device. You need to have this. My only humble suggestion is to implement a way to tell you which apps are sending you pop up ads when they are not in use like pop up blocker does. Otherwise it's absolutely perfect and very helpful. Thank you for this app.

Not accurate info. of device, when you use the 'optimize now' button, you'll see mb or GB supposedly disappearing from your phone, cleaning up to give more memory or longer battery life. It's not accurate! The same battery-memory sucking apps reappear instantly. If one was bored they could just optimize and re-optimize over and over and over with same results. Not useful app, waste of time.

app seems to work well in clearing up space to keep the device running efficiently. since i do not experience the phone running more efficiently I can only go by what the app says it is doing. it can be set to run automatically but it needs to keep a log for say a specific number of logs ie. keep 5 logs and delete the oldest one. when i do run it it will the icon will spin around until done a pop up message will appear saying what it has done and then disappears. no ads is good

I use this instead of google play's. Google shut off system apps over downloading security. (Some came from samsung galaxy) I trust samsung more than google. If you have a samsung phone that's 7 years old, they'll still help you & respond, even if it is 3am. I know Samsung is more trustworthy protecting my Samsung phone then creepy sneaks who post they'll send emails and then shut down your apps. HEY, if bluetooth isn't working -- it was G. Reset apps to default, look what they did to YOUR PHONE!

Above expectations....... but there was no way found to access the "more menu" to sched updates on my prompt. I really have no idea if this even effects my actual daytime useage if it was updating while say, I was working. For sure in my S9+ this download today has been going on 20min at 5am when I prefer this not running now. The option would be a nice best case feature that gives extra piece of mind if I could change the updates to say 1am. Thumbs up for useage @ .5% recorded!

I had device maintenance with the security ability and my samsung ran beautiful. It has since been switched to device care and now my device has not been operating smoothly. I would like to find out how to revert to the ability to use the security function to correctly monitor my device.

Why doesn't this app clear your cache for your device applications?! This is where a huge chunk of your temporary storage goes and this clear down doesn't seem to touch it. This application would certainly be more useful if it did clear it.

Auto optimization & restart schedule is not working. Also When opening app however it start optimization but not cleaning memory and storage so should manually perform it and is so boring to do time by time on daily basis. This app should be intelligent enough to notify and auto start refresh and cleaning memory once phone's speed & storage reduced.

Insists on high battery usage on an app that has used 0.01% battery in 24 hours, less than 0.10% in a week. 🙄 And there are 20+ apps that are running more that it! At least give us the ability to ignore something so trivial!

its just goes on notification rants where it does not stop.. i mean so much i have to restart my phone.. one time i just let it go just to see how long..after 15 minutes i just restarted.. and its been going on since i got this phone.. just getting outrages now

Keeps suggesting that I disable an app I want running, support were useless when I raised a request about it. No option to ignore my app in the list or disable notifications from Device Care. Can't even just disable Device Care. Very pesky and supicious, my app doesn't use much battery. Just keep an eye on this thing, it's true purpose may be nefarious.

Ever since the update i cant put apps to sleep from battery usage, also i can go into device can and optimize everything and then 2min later i can go back and it was exactly the way it was the first time i optimized. Was so much better before update but the developer never get back to a person to explain. Poor job

I would like to uninstal the app and it doesn't allow me to do that! It got some how instoled on my sons phone. What does bother me is the CM that it shows! I may understand that free app uses CM. But please check the content! It is not for his age! And it doesn't even have the parent control !!

I believe this is a great program. I have had no problems with it and the widget is great. One push and it optimizes your phone and you notice the difference.

Updated my storage capacity with another updater on top of it before and after to confuse the pissed pants of the fire ants who developed a theories thought they had everything in control like rates for the motel stay with a credit card kickback bonus they keep a tiny commission out of it until I came along with a voice in my head without any aid or assistant either auditory or vocal and I am deaf at 1000%

I somehow got this app installed and it broke my phone charging process. My phone no longer fast charges at all. Uninstalled it and phone still doesnt fast charge. This app is horrible, not to mention it deleted 2 GB of files but didnt tell me what those files were. App is garbage!

A Great app made for Samsung devices....It helps us alot to make our phone more faster....👊 It also improves the battery life & removes the junk data & viruses....I love this app & I would highly recommend it to everyone who want to make his/her device faster & secure....Thanks Devs....🤘

Great app to clear leftovers apps and junks. Would like to see whether a "Clear Memory" shortcut or widget can be added so that "memory" clear function can be processed quickly.

Best app. Keeps my phone running in tip top shape. Let's me know what it did to improve performance. All with just one click of a button. Couldn't be easier.

I want back the ability to tell it to ignore certain apps running im the background. Even when i tell it not too auto optimise apps still get closed.

Great and easy way to keep your samsung device clean of junk and running smooth .. Its simple to use . I clean my galaxy s10+ weekly

It won't shut up. I like CamScanner. Please stop telling me to uninstall it every two minutes - literally. No option to disallow notifications. This app is the true definition of harrassment.

Since I updated the app on September 6 2019, when I put the widget on my home screen it says problem loading. Very disappointed in this update. It was all good before I update

Maximum power saving is not working very annoying all other features work perfectly be great if you could sort leave it has something to do with the fact that Android for work is activated on the Samsung device

Very easy to use application. The layout is nice and I appreciate the tips that pop up at the top. This is the only application I appreciate pop ups on 😂😂🤣💯

I disabled auto optimisation...but every day my phone does auto optimisation i don't like this and where is unmonitored apps option?!!

Very bad update..Feel like installed some bug or virus..How Samsung recommend such a bad app for the users !!! It will affect their reputation and trust from the customers..

Very poor cooler cleaner and battery saver my mobile is very heeted please more inclued real true hard battery saver with true cooler and super best cleaner and booster so more inclued improove and update very very fast thanks

Medium Power Setting does not offer background location checks as a toggable On / Off setting like background data. Please add the option for users to have that left on when medium power saving is activated.

Nice app. Tidied up bugs. Can be set to self check at a time to suit one self.

No stars, this app cannot be disabled or battery saver switched off so it causes Pokémon Go Adventure Sync to not record distance in the background.

All Androids should have something like this. A ram, battery and storage monitor that also increases performance.

Your stuff works great but with this wifi at this hotel it has an effect on everything I have!

Outstanding....hope this app will be add more helpful feature in near futute by update so that users can fully trust that it is a splendid app and actually helpful for phone

Prefer the old version where it doesn't circle two times plus circle up top left when finished. Or only half circle when complete. But hey 🤷‍♀️

Love it, really helps you enjoy and get the most out of your phone.

Good app for device health. More improvement is required in detecting a virus infected contents or App.

Terrible! Apps can't be put to sleep not manually. Battery doesn't last as long now.

well as far as I know this app looks after your device and gets rid of unknown apps and so on I so far haven't a problem with it thanks

I like that I feel in control of unused or accumulated waste and can remove it while I renew my memory and capacity.

A fast easy way to clean storage and memory plus keep viruses away.

I love the easy style,and tool bar that says what it means

It's very good and really works.. Optimising and cleaning feature is best.

No longer has the security function on my Galaxy J3v 3rd gen phone. Had to download a seperate app for that.

Keeps my phone clean + running at peak performance, works very well 👍😘

Easy and efficient with no annoying add on suggestions.

The time monitoring of app runtime doesn't works well It shows wrong details Other activities works well

Show processor stop app apps running background .I love it let's improving

Need More Improvement for Battery Algorithm & Background Application Control

Nice and good service for device helpful for health care thanks

Love to use this app everyday. Keeps my Galaxy S8 Active running efficent, thanks developers.

Battery life worst I've ever had and now and can no longer manage manually.

Won't clean memory or storage after the update needs to be fixed

I'll give it three stars. I don't hate it. But what heightened to it telling about your battery health? It seems like they did away with that and I would have liked to test my battery.

Easy interface kills running apps and frees up storage space

Minor Bug Fixes? Seriously? They removed "Detects malware (viruses, spyware) and provides real-time protection" and don't tell you. Left it in the description, however it is indeed missing. Don't let the Galaxy Store or Google Play auto-update your apps. First they changed providers from McAfee to 360 and now it's gone completely. TELL US. Complete change logs should be required.

Maybe it's just the newest version with Pie. but I have no idea why I need to optimize apps in memory then kill apps for battery usage. and then also disable the data usage on app separately in settings. Needs to be all in one with info on background processes with network monitoring details also. lol the people who dont know what this is or anything about maintenance and complain about this phone are trolls or idiots. how many things can you do at once for a whole day? see how you get tired...

New version drainage my phone and heating up battery.i uninstall from s8+.

please add a new feature clean catch data in storage setting like samsung s6 in this app

I did not download this app. Sprint told me it was a default app. Google does not allow info about app to be viewed except for latest update with bug fixes. it does not provide info about data deleted without knowledge or consent. It has deleted more than 8gb of data without notifying me. Some of data intended as evidence in lawsuits. Extensive loss and damage.

Nice app for samsung galaxy j series..S series...M series...A series...

Can't find a way to delete it I need device maintenance in order to use the wireless charger it says to turn it on in device maintenance wireless charger is not in device care at all

Wont stop downloading even when I uninstall and turn off auto updates.

Good app but it has a bug in it. please fix this in the next update. also add a feature where it Automatically cleans out extra storage and memory. I also think this app should scan Device batterie to make sure it not over heated or in bad conditions. please add these changes to your next few updates. Thank you.

Does not prevent phone from dozing & then delaying vital notifications

I really like the device care app, for the most part it does make me feel like my device has been cleaned but bc of other things ive downloaded i guess, my phone is slow at times but thats my fault for accidentally letting unknown source have access to my permissions but other than tht i like it alot i do wish it had some sort of a super turbo cleaner like after it cleans your device with the normal device care app then have a little extra button on the side that has a super turbo device cleaner

I used to be able to tell device care to not monitor specific apps because I WANTED them to run without being put to sleep. I have apps that NEED to run in the background constantly. But now device care just tells me to put them to sleep. I WANT TO TURN THIS OFF!!!!

This app does not work correctly at all do not download it it's a nuisance

Don't recommend this. I click "optimize now" and it starts deleting over 2 gigabytes of stuff without telling me or notifying me first. I don't know what's it's trying to delete, but I don't like apps that just deleted your stuff without notification of it doing so and not telling you what it is deleting. Will not let me disable. I don't use this, I don't want it on my phone. Why do you have to be so forceful Samsung? Conceited much?

May have helped cleaned phone from malware but each time booted up it ran visually over screen before you could operate phone. Also, ads were expected but would pop up when you were in middle of writing text. Together this was too annoying for any benefits.

Totally rubbish. No simple way of resetting it.

I have the oneUI android 9 version. The least interference is when set to "optimized". No way of disabling this app. It prevents apps like WhatsApp from checking for new messages in real time. Unless I'm in WhatsApp when I get a message, or am connected to the charger, I don't see new messages. New phone, battery fully charged, and still... All other settings are set to always check for new messages. If I won't find a way to disable it, or get it fixed, this will be my last Samsung phone!

i miss the old app it replaced with the new update. it used to tell you the temperature of your phone, let you know which apps were draining the battery and help you cool down your phone if it was getting really hot or on the brim of overheating. this app doesn't do that. it doesn't stop or put to sleep apps running on the background.

Add more features to clean battery and cache

It does nothing as described except for single-click memory cleanup?? Really, I have no idea what it does. I click it and it does something for less than 5 seconds and then it comes back and says 512 kilobytes of memory cleaned. There's no UI, there is no interaction, nothing telling you what's being done, what it is getting rid of. Considering the app is from Samsung, you would expect that it would work on their own flagship, the S10 plus. But as I said it is the stupidest thing I have seen.

Falls way off the mark compared to the app it replaced. Clearly launched way before it was ready. Used to be able to kill the apps still running with the old app, can't with this one, instead it assures you that everything is optimised and doesn't allow you to do any of that yourself, so rush I could put device maintenance back on instead at least that app actually did what is was supposed to do.

just another useless app to drain our battery life..our batteries are strategically designed to last only for a certain amount of time. smh...when someone develops one when we have the option to choose what we want then I'll be impressed.

This App Came With My Samsung Galaxy S9+ And It Works Great

every time it optimized my memory, all my games would have to redownload all their content again. we're talking about 1.3gb - 2.9gb downloads. That kind of constant write cycles to the solid state memory in my phone is definitely NOT GOOD and practically shedding away the life of my phone. Sadly this app seems to be the only way i can access the option to safely mount or unmount my SD card. Note 8.

Samsung needs to identify each app it loads onto the phones it sells. This app was NOT on my Galaxy Note 9, & then, unannounced, it was. I happened to see it as I performed app housekeeping. The app seems to work OK but Samsung needs to directly notify its customers when it loads new stuff with information as to what it does.

I am pretty sure that this app kills off many of my messengers background tasks and completely bugs out the notification system of the phone. Where once the phone "optimizes" itself, I get either late or no notifications for my WhatsApp.

Read comments,seen alot of ppl saying "i can't UNINSTALL this APP" i haven't had that problem. It says "UNINSTALL" "OPEN" so thats strange. Also seen comments saying that this app - Auto updates. Mine hasn't ever,my Google play is set "DONT AUTO UPDATE" make sure yours is off, and not set to update on its own. Set it to Manually UPDATE. Mines set to updating all my apps manually. i decide what app i want updated,apps change all the time and once its updated you cant go back to old version.

First, is this the only device cleaning app you can use on Samsung S8? I really liked the last version. You were able to save battery by shutting apps down. My nain concern is memory and storage. Need my other apps to run smoothly by keeping a good space of extra memory. • Also does anyone answer these reviews? That is a great way to see if an app us a good one by the response to reviews.

Only useful thing the app does is try to notify you when apps are active in background. However it's true purpose is revealed when it tries to sell you McAfee device security. No thanks.

This app needs to be able to exclude selected apps from the high battery utilization category. I have a widget that keeps getting flagged, but is not using hardly any battery. The old version of this on the Samsung Galaxy S8 allowed for exclusions, but this is no longer available with the S10e. The similar app for LG's ThinQ S8 also allows for exclusions.

nagware, no way to turn off notifications no matter how useless. Samsung makes good Hardware but their software on everything they touch sucks boulders. I had to use a third-party app to silence and disable this crapfest of useless nags

It forces user to use McAfee...the worst software

For Those idiots who don't know what this is , it's a feature built in your smartphone which cleans your device , frees up storage , & protects your phone from viruses. It's an all in one app with no ads like the other worthless apps out on the play store .You are stupid if you don't know how to use this app , it's bloatware, useless , ruined my smartphone, etc. etc. Go back to your slow ass iPhone 6 if you don't know how to use a Samsung or this app.

You know what I love about Samsung? If I scan for viruses on their software and nothing comes up, then I use this to clear my data, it clears all the scams and viruses. I dont even know what Playbuzz is! My phone started glitching today after finding this app removing a virus that I've never seen before. Next time I'll buy an Apple. Thanks Samsung 🤡

since this app installed at my Samsung update my battery is dying three times as fast- it says apps running in the background are closed but they're not- all of them still show as using background time. I only used to charge my phone every 3 days now I'm charging daily or sometimes 2x a day.

while i have used samsung from 4 to s9 i believe this is the worst of them it does not supply a cool down function nor does it supply accurate info on background apps that are burning battery percentage nor functioning properly it seems that this update also help burn battery as my phone is continiously hot it dont turn phone off or turn apps off that are not being used it has no control over apps at all sorry complained directly to samsung about this nothing now have a 900$ worth of junk

samsung please give us for bettery health we want it. Can you make more standby battery on s9+ it not good, I'm not use but my battery still decrease ?

Works ok just wish it would stop deleting my downloaded Google play movies and music.(think it's this doing it) Was much better on older phones where you could choose what it ignores.

doesnt actually stopped close or put to sleep apps, has no real control over storage(cache is never actually cleared, cannot detect temp files, cannot ckeanup uninstalled app files, has no access to any third party apps to debloat unnecessary data) most actions or modifications it says its doing it doesnt actually do.

Very good useful apps. Thank you

Since the last update today when I say scan for security this App doesn't do anything - 0% when it should be doing a full security scan of my device for 100 %. I'm really unhappy / Mad because of this new update for this device security app hope you can help resolve this app issue.

compared to what Samsung usually fills his phone with, this app seems useful and like it does what it is intended to without subverting a user's actual desires which seems common with Samsung apps... -1 * for a weird 100 point scale that is obviously totally arbitrary and doesn't have any relation to actual battery savings on an objective absolute, or even relative, basis.

I don't have any option to stop the application, no option to turn off the battery power saving, I constantly use more than one applications and the phone turns them off while I'm using the other. I'm so sorry I updated the system and got this device care.

app is preloaded in my tablet and it doesn't work. not optimized for my device and cannot be optimized for some reason. SM-T377V
