This tutorial will be on How to Wipe/Clear Cache Partition on the Galaxy S8 and by extension the Galaxy S8 Plus or other similar devices. This will be similar to the article we did on doing a hard reset which is different as you will not lose any data when you use this method. Both methods are also used to achieve different things depending on your situation with your phone.
What is Wipe Cache Partition and What does it do?
The cache partition contains temporary files your device stores for various apps and so on. After a while a build up of these files can cause your phone to lag,freeze, crash or cause errors. When you clear the cache partition you get rid of all these temporary files which in most cases will fix such issues. Best of all doing this will not affect your data as the files that are deleted is nothing noticeable to you.
