Clear App Cache/Data:

NOTE: If one of your apps crashes, freezes, takes up too much storage inexplicably or doesn’t work as intended, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the app’s cache or data.

WARNING! When you clear an app’s data, all personal data stored within the app will be lost, including user profiles, save files, high scores, credit card and login information etc. To avoid losing personal app data, clear ONLY the app’s cache.

  1. Open the apps drawer
  2. Go to “Settings
  3. Scroll to “Phone” and tap “Apps
  4. Select the desired app
  5. Tap “Storage” > “Clear cache
  6. If clearing the app’s cache didn’t help, tap “Clear data” > “OK” to confirm (check WARNING above)

Clear the Phone’s Cache Partition:

NOTE: In case your phone crashes, freezes, or runs out of storage inexplicably, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the phone’s cache partition. This can yield similar results to a factory reset without losing any personal data stored on the device. To clear the cache partition:

  1. Turn the phone OFF if necessary
  2. Press and hold “Power” and “Volume down” simultaneously

  10. Press “Power” to select the option

  12. Press “Power” one last time to confirm and restart your phone

NOTE: In case clearing the phone’s cache partition didn’t solve the issues, you can check this guide for instructions on how to factory reset the phone.
