Applications and apps accumulate a lot of data in the cache or temporary buffer that occupies unnecessary storage capacity.
So the caches of apps and browsers can be emptied:
Empty individual app cache on versions up to Android 7.9
- Go to "Settings".
- Call up "Apps
- Select your target lobe
- Open the "Memory"
- Press the "Clear Cache" dialog box
- Repeat the process from 1. for other apps
Clear the memory for all apps up to version Android 7.9 at once
- Go to "Settings"
- Call up "Memory
- Open "Internal shared memory".
- Tap on "Data in Cache".
- In the dialog box that opens, say "OK".
In the newer versions of Android 8 and 9, the caches must be deleted individually:
- Call up "Memory" in Settings (8), Call up "Apps" in Settings (9)
- Touch "More Apps" (8), "Memory" (9)
- Press "Empty Cache" (8 & 9)
Your smartphone also contains browsers for Internet access. Google Chrome and Firefox are common. The "empty cache" is done in the menu of the respective browser:
Device with Chrome App
- Open the Chrome App
- Select "More" in the upper right corner
- Select the command "Delete browser data" in the "History"
- For complete emptying and deletion, tap on "Total time".
- The dialog offers you cookies, additional data and files and images
- Trigger the "Delete data" command
Device with Firefox
- Open the browser
- Go to "Settings" in the upper right corner
- Call up "Delete private data
- Select "Cache" in the dialog box that appears
- The command "Delete data" is now available at the bottom right
