stevec5375 I could be totally wrong but it is my understanding that the cache partition only contains information related to the system. When computer chips get written and rewritten or written over traces of code are left over that can cause problems. I only wipe the cache partition when I first get a phone or after a system update. The main storage cache I clear regularly and it's my understanding that the cache in the main storage contains pieces of information from websites and apps that you have visited so that going back to the website or app is quicker. The main storage cache is stored in the RAM and that space is limited and is why a phone will get slow if the RAM is near full. I always think of the RAM as a rev limiter. If it's near full it's always bumping out the oldest stored data to allow the new data in. Kind of like hitting a rev limiter.
Now I'll patiently wait for one of the real tech gurus to see this and straighten me out.
Just wanted to add I've had to clear the cache partition on other phones to clear up issues. It's not just the Axon 7, stuff happens and clearing the cache partition is usually the first step to fixing most issues and an FDR is next on every phone I've used. I don't find myself doing it often though as a temporary fix for any one thing. If something goes wrong that's usually what I'll try but it's not very often.
