I was researching whether Snapdragon 820 has overheating issues like 810, and found numerous advice on both LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 that says "yes, overheating can happen, and to fix it, clear the cache, possibly followed by factory reset".

Example, example.

However, none of the articles had any explanation on how clearing the cache would help.

Is there a reason it would help fix overheating? How?

  • Before wiping cache (if you did), did you make a copy of it for forensics? It would possibly be having something that could lead to understanding of solution. – Firelord Apr 23 '16 at 22:36

    @Firelord - I don't own the phone. I want to understand why this proposed solution would work, before deciding to get 820 based device. – DVK Apr 23 '16 at 22:40

    I see no reason to believe this would work, but it's certainly possible if some poor coding within Android does intensive operations on old cache files for strange reasons. – Matthew Read Apr 23 '16 at 23:31
