Clear cache, cookies, etc. to unclutter phone


Put your phone into Recovery Mode. You did not mention what device you have but it would be the same procedure for doing a hard reset. Instead of choosing Wipe Data/Factory Reset you will navigate down to Wipe Cache Partition. Then go through the process of the phone restarting and back into Recovery but this time, choose Wipe Dalvik Cache. Now your phone will be uncluttered from unused files. If you want to unclutter further then integrate your Google Apps. Get Google Photos and once installed you can go into the Settings of the app and configure it to back up all photos/videos into the cloud storage and remove them from your Gallery on your device. The nice feature to this app is that you can recall any photos from the app yet they are not sitting in your phone Gallery space hogging up internal memory. You should also use an app like CCLeaner or Go Speed to regularly clean clutter off your device. After the Marshmallow OS some apps currently make you manually run the cleaning process but they will be updated soon to clean automatically on a schedule you set up.

I wish to clean the complete data of my phone without losing any app, is it possible?

I wish to clean the complete data of my phone with losing any app, is it possible?. I have tried: Right now I do not want to try something I do not know.


No. You could go to Settings>Applications Manager and manually select each app then clear the data. This is time consuming though. Running the apps mentioned above does help on a daily/weekly basis. Use those apps for regular cleaning. Wipe Cache Partition and Wipe Dalvik Cache will remove tons of data yet not the apps but you will need to do this every few weeks if your phone has minimal internal storage and is bogged down on a regular basis.
