    After seareching, I didn't see a list of apps that save "cache" to phone memory. So here is a start of such a list. Cache can take up a lot of memory space and that causes your device to become laggy.

    For those that don't know how to clear cache ...

    Goto
    Settings, manage apps, then click on app.
    If the cache has a number click
    Clear cache

    Here are the apps I have found that "need" to be cleared. If you know of some, please add to the list.

    So did you see any clear lag-reduction after clearing the cache of those apps?

    Clearing the cache is most likely like killing apps....not needed.

    Ok but I can prove that it does work. Unlike killing apps.

    If your internal memory is at 10mb your phone will run slower than when its at 50mb. Your phone running slower causes more battery use do to taking more time to do stuff.



    I normaly let mine go down to about 30mb clear the cache and it goes back up to between 55 and 60mb.
