Cache memory problems in Android

Clean the cache memory if your Android devices slow down

The cache memory is a very important part of the user experience in Android. It consists of several small temporary files that the apps create to fasten use. Cache memory saves battery, mobile data and increases speed. However, there are also moments when a heavy memory cache load may slow down your Android device.

Generally, when the cache memory is full it starts to be problematic for the mobile phone. You will notice less response and slow down charge times. The apps may also start failing and shutting themselves off.

Cache memory may fasten your apps but it can also slow them down

Paradoxically, the cache memory of apps can fasten their use or slow them down. It all depends on the amount of cache memory stored. Some of the small data files may get corrupted over time. If this happens, the software will not run smoothly. So you will need to clear the cache memory to avoid the slowing down of your devices.  

It’s also important to erase cache memory regularly if your phone has small storage space. You can’t update apps or fully make use of them when the storage space is full. The app performance also gets reduced with a high cache memory file.

Avoid cache memory issues and slow down by cleaning it periodically

The best solution for cache memory issues is to clean it periodically in each of your apps. In order to clean the cache memory you have to follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select  Storage and Other apps.
  3. It’s also possible to reach cache memory from Settings – Apps and notifications.
  4. Once you are inside the app you want to clean, press the button Clear cache.

Then you are ready to start over again. The app should run faster and your mobile phone too.
