With the release of Poco F1, Xiaomi has set a new benchmark for an affordable high-end smartphone. It has everything that we usually get on flagship smartphones under just $300 bucks. Just like any other smartphone, the Poco F1 can face multiple problems related to its performance, functioning, and stability.

In this tutorial, we’ll help you to delete or clear cache on Poco F1 including the cache partition to remove all problematic issues.
Being an Android-powered smartphone makes this smartphone more user-friendly. It packs inbuilt maintenance related tools to counter most of the Android problems and issues. The cache memory causes some serious issues lowering the overall the performance of the phone. Basically, the cache memory is generated each time open an application for run-time tasks. These files are used to improve the user experience, so applications can serve data as fast as possible. Applications like Facebook, Instagram, etc., accumulate a huge amount of cache data. This memory keeps on growing over time and eventually impact the overall performance and stability of the phone.
Therefore, it is important for us to get rid of this excessive memory and avoid trouble. To get rid of the cache memory on the Poco F1 phone, there two ways. Either you can clear the cache memory of individual apps or clear all cache data at once. If you’re facing problems and issues with specific apps, then clearing the cache memory related to them could solve the problem. If you find that your phone is behaving unnaturally, throwing apps crashes, errors and similar ones, try clearing the whole cache at once. That should vanish those problems and errors on the go.
These are the basic troubleshooting solutions that one should be aware of. If you find that clearing cache has no significance over existing issues, you could go advance and perform a hard reset or re-install its firmware. There are many other solutions to cure different issues and bugs on Android phones. As far as you are concerned with performance and stability related bugs, clearing the cache memory should work. Clearing the cache memory on Poco F1 is almost the same as we do on other smartphones. Even though Poco F1 has customized the Android skin, it won’t make such things harder for you.
During this tutorial, we will also learn to clear the entire cache partition on this phone. That removes all cache files and data related to third-party apps and in-house system applications. That leaves no chance for bugs and issues to still exist. Most importantly, while we perform this action, it won’t hurt the installed application, downloaded stuff and files present in your phone. Your data remains safe and there is no need to worry. This process only removes the cache files, the temporary files created by applications to serve things faster for you.
