Default Log Deletion

Please Login to Remove!

I've been advised to delete my log (ALT+L+G+L+G) when my phone gets slow. I've done it once and sincerely I've been afraid of doing it again and harming my phone. Any suggestions? Does it hurt the phone?
Cheers

It also doesn't delete very much memory.

How exactly is memory cleaning going to increase performance? If anything, the added process will hinder performance.

Yes, for real and I'm not kidding. I'm not sure you know what memory cleaner actually does.

hmmmmm....memory cleaning is to delete sensitive data from the temporary memory on your device: cache for the browser, unencrypted data from email messages, LDAP authentication passwords, and the clipboard (copy & paste)

The memory space is overwritten, to prevent retrieval. It's not deleted, hence no additional free space is gained.

This is a security feature, not a maintenance task.
It also uses CPU cycles and there's a performance hit for it.
Albeit small, but still takes work to do.

It will not increase device performance during or after it's been run.
Any perceived performance increase is nothing more than placebo effect.

Why don't you answer this one... I think you are being a little "stand off-ish" in your posts here... We have some members that a very "direct" and others that are more laid back but we have some very knowledgable folks around here. Give it some time and you might make some new neat friends!

As far as memory, it recovers little but as you say every bit helps and personally I just keep it above 18mb and yank that battery on a routine basis.
