What is cache and why should you clear it?

First things first, let me explain what cache is and why it’s important to clear it on your Galaxy smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has two types of cache: app cache and system cache. Each app on your Note 4 has its own cache, which stores temporary data to help the app run smoothly. Similarly, the system cache stores temporary data for the Android software as a whole. Clearing the system cache can resolve issues like app crashes and freezes. So, let’s get rid of that cache and fix those problems!

How to clear the app cache on the Samsung Note 4

If a specific app is causing problems, it’s a good idea to start by clearing its cache. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your Samsung Note 4.
  2. Go to Settings > 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. Select “Clear Cache”.
  6. If you want to clear the cache for all apps, go to Settings > Storage.
  7. Select “Cached Data” to clear the cache for all apps at once.

Just a heads up, 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 careful!

What to do when clearing the app cache doesn’t help

If you’ve cleared the cache of individual apps but the problem on your Note 4 persists, it’s time to uninstall the app and reboot your device. Before you reset the Note 4, make sure to back up all your data to prevent any loss. If the problem still persists after rebooting, it’s recommended to perform a system cache wipe, also known as clearing the cache partition on the Note 4.

How to clear the system cache on the Note 4:

  1. Turn off your Note 4.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up, Power, and Home buttons simultaneously until the Android logo appears and the phone vibrates.
  3. Release the Power button but continue holding the other buttons.
  4. Use the volume buttons to highlight “Wipe Cache Partition”.
  5. Press the Power button.
  6. Scroll down to “Yes” and press the Power button.
  7. Scroll to “Reboot System Now” and press Power.
  8. Your Samsung Note 4 will reboot with a cleared system cache.

If the problems persist, the next step is to factory reset the Samsung Note 4.
