Samsung Galaxy S6 Perform Wipe Cache partition

If you have problems with your new Samsung Galaxy S6, this has mostly to do with Android firmware. Problems may be, for example:

  • Samsung Galaxy S6 becomes very hot while using apps
  • The Samsung Galaxy S6 battery runs out of power quickly
  • The Samsung Galaxy S6 screen goes black
  • etc.

If you have problems with your smartphone or issues in the manner as described above, then you can try to solve this with a so called Wipe cache partition. This method deletes temporarily system files. Are these temporary files incorrectly, they can cause problems and errors. That's why it makes sense to perform a wipe cache partition to delete them on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Do not worry it will not erase any personal data etc. We show you how to perform a wipe cache partition on the Samsung Galaxy S6:

Turn off your Samsung Galaxy S6 completely. Then you have to press the following keys to turn on the phone on again:

  • Power On/ Off
  • Volume +
  • Home button

If the Samsung Galaxy S6 vibrates once, release the power on/ off button but keep the other two keys from the key combination pressed until a small menu appears on the screen.

Now mark the entry "Wipe cache partition" with the volume down key. With the power on / off button the entry can be selected selected and the process gets started. This usually takes only a few seconds. Then the previously displayed menu appears again. Now select the first entry with "Reboot system now" and run the command again with a press of the power button. Your Samsung Galaxy S6 will now reboot.

That's it. The reboot can now might take a few seconds longer. After that no more errors such as overheating, black screen or battery drain should occur with your Samsung Galaxy S6.

You now know how to solve problems using a wipe cache partition on the Samsung Galaxy S6.
