Hi, wiping the cache partition isn't dangerous. It clears unnecessary files some of which may be corrupt and slowing the device down. It should clear lag and help battery life.

Once you've cleared the cache partition download and run Galaxy App Booster.

To clear the cache partition you need to connect your phone to A PC then Turn off the device. This is important as your device won’t boot to Recovery Mode when it’s on.

Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby / Power key.

Once the Android Recovery screen comes up, release the buttons.

Use the Volume Down button until you are highlighting ‘Wipe cache partition.’

Press the Power button to select ‘Wipe cache partition.’

Use Volume Down to highlight Yes.

Press the Power button to confirm the action to clear the cache.

Wait for a second as the system wipes the cache.

Press the Power button again to reboot the device.

Hi @Masser  No I think wiping the cache partition is advisable after updates and most experts would recommend it.  should help clear the lag.  No Data is lost but temporary files are  deleted and device should run more smoothly.

Follow these steps if you wish to go ahead:

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Connect To Computer or plug in USB-C Headphones  , Press and hold the Volume Up key and then press and hold the Power key .
  3. When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
  4. An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
  5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
  6. Press Power key to select.
  7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
  8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.

Press the Power key to restart the device

Why do I need to connect windows? With the USB? It seems to clear it fine without. But I do have a question my device runs really really well after I do this it’s a brand-new device but within an hour then every app that needs data run slow  they will open but it takes forever for the data to to open this is from Chrome to any other app that requires some kind of Internet any ideas? I’ve factor restored it three times.   I have great internet and wireless speeds.  Samsung tech has proved useless.
