Those apps can affect your smartphone with malware or they can be Spywares. These apps can harm your device and your privacy as well. So, the best thing is to download apps from the Google Play Store only.

When your phone memory gets full, your phone starts to work slowly and you may notice some lag while using your phone. Now the memory cleaning doesn’t mean that you have to use a memory cleaner app.
You can manually select useless files or duplicate files and delete them. However, if you don’t want to do it manually then you can also use the Files by Google app which helps you to clean your phone storage and to find and delete duplicate files.
Bonus tip: For your precious photos and videos, use a Cloud storage service like Amazon Photos or Microsoft OneDrive to automatically back them up externally.
9. Soft reset your phone:
If your phone is acting unusually sluggish restarting it with a soft reset is your best option. This is especially true if you have not restarted it for an extended period of time.
A soft reset will clear up your phone’s used resources, RAM and any hang apps in the background.
Press and hold both the Home and Power buttons until your phone shuts down and restarts. Continue holding these two buttons until the Apple logo is displayed.
Once the Apple logo is displayed, let go of the buttons and your iPhone will continue booting to the home screen.
To soft reset an Android phone with removable battery, simply pull out the battery, put it back in, then turn on the phone as usual. To soft reset Android phones with non-removable batteries, hold the power and volume down buttons simultaneously and continue holding them until the phone restarts and the boot animation is displayed.
