Two different solutions can be used to solve many Android issues that Samsung Galaxy S20+ Plus and Galaxy S20+ Plus owners may encounter. They take only a few minutes each. Complete a factory reset, or wipe the cache to resolve any software issues or bugs on your Galaxy S20.
Clearing the cache of a Samsung Galaxy S20 or Galaxy S20+ Plus smartphone is best when there are delays, glitches, or freezes. Here’s how to clear the Galaxy S20 cache.
What’s the cache?
It’s essential to understand what cache is, and why you should clear it from your Galaxy smartphone. There are two types of cache for the Samsung Galaxy S20. One is called the app cache, and the second is the system cache. Each app on the Galaxy S20+ Plus and Galaxy S20+ Plus have its own cache. This cache stores temporary data that can be used to help you switch between apps. The system cache on the Galaxy S20 does exactly the same thing but it is for each app and not the Android software. Clearing the system cache wipe is a good idea if you have issues with apps freezing or crashing.
Clearing the app cache from the Galaxy S20
Clearing the app cache is a good first step to fix problems specific to a particular app. These instructions will help you clear your app cache.
- Turn on your Galaxy S20+ or Galaxy S20+ Plus
- Go to Settings > App Management
- Clear the cache by selecting the app that you wish to use
- Once you have selected the app, go to the screen with the app information
- Clear Cache
- Clear the cache from all apps by going to Settings > Storage
- Clear all caches in an app by selecting Cached Data
Clear Data is not an option you should choose unless it causes app to store all your information, such as user names, passwords and game progress, preferences, settings, preferences, and so forth.
What should you do if the app cache isn’t cleared
If the Galaxy S20 problem persists after you clear the cache for individual apps, uninstall it and restart the device. To prevent data loss during the reset process of the Galaxy S20, it is important to back up all data before you do so.

This refers to clearing the cache partition on your Galaxy S20.
