My Moto G 1st Gen mobile is getting lag and slow after upgrade to android lollipop. Please help me to get it fix.Thanks!


No need to reset the phone.Clearing cache partition should do the job. How to clear cache partition on Moto G

  • I already did and did not help for me. I guess a factory reset is the only option left. – Kapé Mar 14 '15 at 1:18

    I don't think that factory reset might help if clearing cache didn't help. Anyway no harm in trying. But be sure yo backup your data before doing so. – pcforgeek Mar 14 '15 at 2:08

The official guide to Moto G Clear Cache process is here.

But the only combination that worked to access the "wipe cache partition" menu was: [Try to press and hold Power Button for at least two seconds and then without releasing the Power Button press Vol. Up key]

  • The instructions are outdated for Lollipop. It's now the opposite. On the Android in distress icon, you'll want to press the Power button a few seconds, then tap on Volume Up. I hope this helps. – user98344 Mar 16 '15 at 13:50

I did the below method and it worked fine for me,

  • Do a backup of your phone
  • Do a factory reset.
  • Restore your phone

It should be fast now.

  • Does it really speed things up? I just though the phone couldn't really hand OS 5.0. – jim Apr 13 '15 at 12:03
