How to Clear Cache on Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge

Hey there! If you’re facing any issues with your Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge, don’t worry. I’ve got two troubleshooting solutions that will fix those bugs in minutes! You can either do a factory reset or clear the cache. Let me show you how to clear the cache on your Galaxy S7.

So, what exactly is the cache and why should you clear it? Good question! The cache on your Galaxy S7 consists of two types: the app cache and the system cache. The app cache stores temporary data for better efficiency when you switch between apps. On the other hand, the system cache does the same thing but for the Android OS software. Clearing the system cache can help fix issues with apps crashing or freezing. It’s also useful when the phone’s issues don’t seem app-related. Now that you know that, let’s get into clearing the cache!

If you’re experiencing problems with a specific app, start by clearing its cache. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Turn on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.
  2. Go to Settings and then to the App Manager.
  3. Select the app you want to clear the cache for.
  4. Once you’ve selected the app, look for the app info screen.
  5. Tap on the “Clear Cache” option.
  6. If you want to clear the cache for all apps, go to Settings and then to Storage.
  7. Select “Cached Data” to clear all app caches at once.

But remember, if you select “Clear Data,” you’ll lose all the information stored by the app, like your username, passwords, game progress, preferences, and settings. So be cautious!

If clearing the app cache doesn’t fix the issue, don’t worry. There’s still something else you can do. Try uninstalling the app and rebooting your device. If the problem persists, it’s time to perform a system cache wipe, which is also known as wiping the cache partition. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Turn off your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up, Power, and Home buttons simultaneously until you see a logo and feel a vibration.
  3. Release the Power button and keep holding the other buttons.
  4. Use the volume buttons to scroll down and highlight “Wipe Cache Partition.”
  5. Press the Power button to select it.
  6. Scroll down to highlight “Yes” and press the Power button to confirm.
  7. Scroll to “Reboot System Now” and press Power.
  8. Your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge will reboot with a cleared system cache.

If the problems still persist after these steps, it’s time to consider a factory reset. But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that! Good luck!
