Hey AndroidPIT readers,
If you have problems with your Google Nexus 5 and the smartphone isn't working properly, a good solution to this is to wipe the system cache of the phone. You don't even need to do a hard reset. In fact, doing a system cache will NOT delete any of your personal info, but only the background and application cache. Cache is stored data on the phone which allows apps to load quicker, it's like the data is on standby until you need it again. Wiping it simply means that the app will have to reload the data.
Here's how it's done:
- From a powered off state, press the Power button to start your Nexus 5. When you see the Google logo press and hold the Volume Down key and release when the device vibrates.
- Use the volume keys to highlight Recovery Menu and press the Power button to select. This will bring you to a screen with an Android on its back.
- Hold the Volume Up key for 5 secs then release and a new menu will appear.
- Use the volume keys to select Wipe Cache Partition and press the power button to select it.
There you go! Your system cache should be wipe and leave you with a much more fluid smartphone.
