One of the most important functions of a smartphone is the so-called Wipe Cache Partition. Why? Because this will delete old temporary system files that may cause problems within the Android system.
Signs are often: battery is draining quickly, OnePlus 5 is getting hot, the performance in general leaves much to be desired. If this also applies to your OnePlus 5, please perform a wipe cache partition as follows:
Info: No personal data will be deleted. Only unneeded system files are removed from the cache.
- Turn off the OnePlus 5.
- Now you have to boot into the recovery menu when restarting.
- Power On / Off
- Volume key
until the recovery menu appears on the display.
- Select your language.
- Use the volume keys to highlight the entry "Wipe Data / Cache" and select this option with the power key.
- Now you see two options. Be sure to select “Wipe Cache” ONLY. This will do the wipe cache partition.
Subsequently, the process is carried out. This takes about 1 second. You will now see the recovery menu again. Select the first entry with "Reboot System Now". Finished
