The Google Nexus 5 is an amazing Android device. I always wanted a taste of Nexus but I just can’t leave the S-Pen. But if you do have the smartphone, it never hurts to know how to clear the cache of Nexus 5 that runs on lollipop. While most of the time the cache works well but sometimes there are bound to be some issues. The Nexus 5 is not a relatively new smartphone anymore and if you are using it. By now you may have noticed that the phone is getting a little sluggish and slow. Learn how to clear the cache of Nexus 5 and maybe we can solve that.
For those who are not familiar with the cache concept, it is basically a storage place for data. Much like an arms cache stores weapons, this cache deals in storing data. There are two kinds of cache on Nexus 5. One is for the whole system and the other one is for individual apps. I will tell you how to clear them both with a few simple steps.
A point to be noted here is that I don’t exactly have the Nexus 5 on me right now. But the clearing Nexus 5 cache is almost identical to the smartphone I’m using. This is thanks to the way almost every Android device handles clearing cache. So theoretically you can use this guide and apply it to let’s say, an HTC M9. I will try to get a Nexus 5 for the screenshots soon.
As always I recommend backing up your Android device before embarking on this guide. Not that the clearing of cache will delete your pictures (unless the app is about pictures), it’s just good to be safe. Use one of the best backup apps on Android to aid you in this.
