How to wipe the cache partition on S10

People often mix this task with a factory data reset. Those are not the same. When you go for this option, you will get rid of the temp files and clutter on your device, but not your personal files and data. On the other hand, factory data reset deletes everything you have stored on your phone which is why you need to back up your files first.

Here is how to wipe cache partition on Samsung Galaxy S10:

  • Turn off your phone
  • Press and hold the Bixby key and the Volume Up key and then press the Power button
  • Keep holding all the keys until you see Android logo
  • Once the logo shows up, release the keys
  • The message saying “Installing system update” will show up
  • You will have to wait about a minute until the Android recovery menu displays on the screen
  • Once the menu shows up, use the Volume buttons to navigate to Wipe Cache partition
  • Select it using the Power key
  • Next, use the Volume Up down key to highlight the option “Yes”
  • Select it using the Power key
  • Once the wiping of cache partition completes, you will see “Reboot system now” message
  • Press the Power key to confirm.

Your device will reboot and you may start using it normally. You will notice it performs better and smoother.
