Hello everyone. Is defrag my android really increase my performance because some sites say it is just a scam. Can you guys recommend me some apps to increase android performance and some useful tweaks. By the way, I have Xperia S and Android 4.0.2. TQ everyone for your time ..

Your android device has solid state memory. There is no need to defrag solid state devices.

There is probably little you can do. I am very happy with the Android performance on my Nexus 7. But that has a quadcore CPU (Tegra 3) versus the duo core Qualcom in the Xperia S. Maybe that makes the difference. Although the Qualcom has a higher clock speed than the Tegra 3.

@xjelly... is your phone rooted or running the stock ROM?
There are some good tweak apps and cache clearing apps on the market, but most require root.

Some devices are, others are not. I'm not familiar with your exact phone, so I can't say. Search both the Cyanogenmod and XDA-Developers websites for device-specific information, then decide if rooting is something you feel comfortable with.

xjelly, Android is not windows, please read whs's link above.
Smartphones are solid state (non spinning) and therefore do not require defragging, the OS will surely look after itself.
Don't invoke something that is not required, don't fix what is not broke
