There are times when your phone starts to act strange, and more often than not, it’s a minor issue with the firmware. It’s pretty minor that it’s worth a reset. Instead, what you have to do is to delete the system cache and it should work properly. So in this post, I will be showing you how to wipe cache partition on your Galaxy S20

If you think you have some minor firmware-related issues, then this procedure should be able to help you. Also, you don’t have to spend much time creating a backup of your important files and data since they will not be deleted.

Wiping Galaxy S20 Cache Partition

Time Needed : 5 minutes

Wiping the cache partition is safe but pretty effective against issues that affect your phone’s performance. The first part of this procedure is to restart your device into recovery mode.

  1. To begin, press and hold the volume down button and the power key for a couple of seconds until the power options show.

    In previous Galaxy devices, you only have to press and hold the power key but it’s different with the S20 already.

  2. Tap Power off to shut down the phone.

    Actually you have to touch two Power off options to shut the device down.

    You should feel a short vibration as a sign that it’s completely powered off.

  4. To start the phone into recovery mode, press and hold the volume up button and the power key for a few seconds.

    When the Galaxy S20 logo shows, release both keys and wait until the phone reaches a black screen with yellow and blue texts. That’s a sign that you’ve successfully booted it up into recovery mode.

But once the device has successfully booted up, you should be able to use it again.

And that’s how you wipe cache partition on your Galaxy S20.
