If you have an Android phone or tablet that is being sluggish, it can be one of the most frustrating experiences with technology. Android, like other Operating Systems, caches app and system data to use in efforts to speed up apps and processes. Yes, the irony wasn’t lost on me either. The problem is that this cache can become corrupt or simply too big for the device to be able to manage effectively. Every OS suffers from this – Android, iOS, Windows and MacOS. Perhaps the only real notable exception is Chrome OS.
The good news is, on Android, there are two things you can do on any device that will help you clear out the cache and restore order to your particular world. One is found in Settings while the more aggressive step requires you get your device into Recovery mode. In this How To I will show you how to do both.
