    I keep finding dianxin on my tablet, but cannot find anything about it, neither on MDL nor in Google.

    It is folder on "internal storage" and according to one source: connected to baidu


    Any idea what it is, what it does, how to permanently get rid off it?

    Thanks. TM

    Got "DU battery saver" installed?

    Seems to be a temp folder created by different apps, probably nothing to worry about

    Not the battery saver, "only" the cleaner, but I checked and the nbattery boost is installed AND activated (without my doing).
    I installed DU, because the one I used before no longer can be installed. I saw that it offers all kinds of garbage too, but as I belong to a generation when apps did only what apps were meant to do, I never checked.
    After looking around on the net. The best one seems to be Clean master , or the sad usual truth, they all suck? :(

    Best Androind cleaner... after trying a few, SD Maid seems to easily the best. No extra crap at all installed!

    +1 I use SD Maid too, check the settings (Advanced iirc) to change the number of threads to suit your device, makes it way quicker if you have multiple cores

    Maybe its 电信 which means "telecom" or even "China Telecom", and reads as "dianxin". Post a screenshot will be helpful to understand it.
