Recreated with the help of my friends here in this thread! Thank you all for your contributions! Clearing your Cache Clearing the cache on your Android is a necessary thing to keep it running fast and smoothly. Just as it is with your PC, so it is with your phone. When your phone gets cluttered with temporary files it will lag and perform poorly. Simply clearing the cache can free up space and eliminate lag. There are several ways to do this and some depend on if your phone is rooted or not. Normally, on an unrooted Android, you can go to Applications and sort by size and then clear the cache of all that need clearing, e.g.: Photo Album, browser, the market, etc. It is also helpful to clear your call history now and then - Click phone, menu, call history, menu and delete all. If you keep your cache clear it will also help to alleviate a lot of the problems you experience that make you think your phone is malfunctioning. There are some also some very good Cache Cleaners available at The Market. For rooted users Cache Mate for Root (attribute: KOLIO) has been highly recommended. I can concur with that! It's available free at the Market. Also, Cache Cleaner NG (attribute: ROB281) has been said to work well in conjunction with Cache Mate. This is also only for rooted phones and is free at the market. It has also been suggested (attribute: NY11725) that disabling Wallpaper Scrolling can create an increase in home screen speed: go to menu/preferences/appearance settings, disable wallpaper scrolling.
