How do I clear up cache etc. on my Android phone?
Hi Nestor, Android has two types of cache: Browser and Applications. This tip addresses how to clear the browser cache. I’ve used the most commonly found version of Android, 2.2, to illustrate the steps. To clear the Browser Cache and History, perform the following steps.
Step 1: Launch a Browser window.
Step 2: Press the menu key on the phone. Typically, it is the left corner key on Android phones. After you press this key, some options appear.
Step 3: Tap More
Step 4: Tap Settings
Step 5: Scroll down to Privacy Settings. Here you’ll notice two options, Clear cache and Clear history. Tap the appropriate option to clear it.
Step 6: A warning window appears. Tap OK to complete the action.
Step 7: Perform Step 5 for Clear history.
That’s it! By clearing the browser cache, you’ll notice some degree of performance improvement of your Android phone. For more improvements, you’ll need to clear the cache of the Android applications installed. The procedure is a little different. I’ll provide a tip for that as soon as possible. So, do keep a look out.
