      Yes, it's necessary. Let me explain this to you..its because you do a lot of multitasking, downloading apps. These Apps may or may not contain a bug., but we usually get a bug report or a system failure that hangs the Android system most frequently. If you are a downloader, clashes in Apps happen mostly since many Apps are free in playstore. This is because the App program may not be protected and may contain irregular programming. Hope this answers your question.
