Just like the other Samsung’s smartphone, you might encounter some performance and stability issues as you spend time with the Samsung Galaxy J8. Most of the time it happens due to the cache memory accumulated on your phone over time. As you follow the troubleshooting solutions, you might want to delete/clear cache on your phone. In this tutorial, we’ll help you to clear/delete the cache memory on your Samsung Galaxy J8 smartphone. That will remove performance and stability related bugs on your phone.
Basically, each and every application that we use on our phone generate cache files. These files are temporary in nature. However, most of its portion doesn’t get wiped out automatically. And over time it becomes so large that it eventually starts to impact the user experience. Most of the time it impacts the performance, causes app crashes, app freezing, reboots and even worse can happen. Therefore, it becomes somewhat important for you to be certain of such action. You can easily clear the cache memory on your Samsung Galaxy J8. And there is no need for using an external app or tools.
When it comes to clearing the cache memory, either we can clear cache memory related to individual apps, or delete the entire cache memory at once. Both have their own significances. If you’re facing issues related to some certain app/apps, you should try clearing memory associated with that application. This helps to cure issues like app crashes and reboots.
Thus, if one clears the cache memory of that particular application, there are greater chances that it would remove those related bugs and problems. Otherwise, clearing the entire cache memory calibrates the entire performance of the phone. Also, you can achieve better performance by disabling the unwanted applications on your Galaxy J8.
If you’re facing some critical issues associated with performance and stability, then deleting the entire cache memory should work. That should remove all the clutter present on your phone. And that helps to regain the lost performance and get rid of existing bugs and issues. Even for sustained performance, it is recommended that the user clears the cache memory once at least in two months.
The cache memory keeps on growing up. Applications like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc., can gather a huge amount of cache memory in no time. Especially, the Facebook Application. In our test, we found that the Facebook application can gather up to 500 MB cache data within two weeks, even if you use it frequently.
So, in that way, you can maintain your phone for sustained performance all the time. Otherwise, just like the other Samsung’s users, you might get stuck with the common performance and stability related issues.
