No one can deny the fact that the smartphone network today has a built itself a grand fan building than ever. With everyday improvements these devices are becoming more and more beloved to you. But along with all these updates, has your device begun to lag lately or its performance has retarded recently, then there is a possibility that you are not taking care of your smartphone as smartly as you should have been.

Well your device makes you keeps you happy most of the times with loaded and updated apps, but you are equally responsible to maintain this efficiency of your smartphone. It is possible that your device has a huge portion of cache memory. Defining it in simple words, the Cached data is nothing but files, images, scripts and other media files stored on your devices by any website or app. Data is stored on your devices in a reserved space, so the next time when you are visiting the app or website, information is already available. It makes the process faster as it does not require loading of all the files again.

Lets make it simple to understand using an example,  say you and your friends visited a place for the very first time, so what does your brain does other than thinking of the fun you all can have? Well it makes a map of your surroundings at the same time. It notices everything and stores it in memory so that when your visit the same again in sometime, it is easier for you to settle. This is somewhat the same way in which cached data behaves. When a device visits a website or uses an app, certain data is stored in the form of cache in the device memory. Next time when your smartphone accesses the same web site, it is easier for the device to access it because of the cached data that was stored when the website was visited the first time.

The main reason why cached data exists is to reduce loading time. So if the device already has the layout of the website saved in the form of cached data, it will not have to load that same data once again. This helps in quickening the process of loading the website. This makes cache helpful, doesn’t it? Then why remove it, lets see that too.

While cached data is helpful for computers, smartphones, and tablets, it can take up space on your device and it may, over a period of time, get corrupt. While the cached data on your device can be helpful for the websites you visit regularly, it can be considered a waste for those websites which you will be visiting just once and there is greater possibility that you won’t access them in near future. But you don’t have to spend a penny on this or get your device repaired, it is done with a few simple steps.

Android devices manage app data very efficiently, and for most of the users, you will not have to worry about managing the cached data manually. However, when the phone begins to face issues and you are trying to fix a problem by following certain troubleshooting steps, then you may come across a step which may ask you to clear cache.

 All apps, whether they are system apps or third party apps will have cached data. Since cached data is automatically created and it does not include any important data, wiping or clearing the cache for an app or a device is harmless. So check your smartphone memory and now and wipe the cache data and experience better functioning of your device again.

Got an efficient branded device that boosts your confidence up? We would say that gives you a responsibility towards your smartphone to keep it in the same condition for a longer run and from there arises the concern to keep a check on the power source, technical glitches and unwanted intrusions on your phone. Shall we help you then??

The analytics helps us to find out more about the factors responsible behind a smartphone’s life expectancy which can help you prolong your device’s life. Yaantra is providing some easy and manageable ideas that can maintain your phone’s efficiency and also keep up with your lifestyle at the same time. When a new device is bought, we all feel a connection to our phone and a result we end up treating it like a new born baby, which includes a habit of keeping it clean. However, this habit wears off with time and this is one of the basic reasons that can affect the life span of any smartphone.

Be very careful when you keep your phone in a dusty place or when left in open because the dust particles can get into the device via open ports like headphone jack or even the charging point. This can cause heating problem in your device and if it goes unattended some of the components may lead to permanent failure. All of this can be avoided by simply using a dry brush and gently removing all the dust from your phone, investing a minute or two would actually add a lot to your phone’s lifetime.

Another vicious habit is leaving your phone on charging overnight while you are off to sleep. This habit of yours will kill the smartphone’s battery and it will never get cured. It will surely reduce your battery’s efficiency and working duration.

Some other habits include taking your phone with you while taking a shower without realising that the moisture generated by the steam can cause equal damage as submerging you device into an open pond or lake would cause. Adding to the harsh reality, ever wondered about some details mentioned on your phone box or manual that specifically mentions the temperature range in which the device should be kept? If not then go and check it now. Avoiding this can damage the battery, the processors or the LCD screen or end up shortening the lifespan of the smartphone.

Well! Now that you’ve got a nice branded device which is somehow infected with these issues or your phone is exposed to accidental damages like dents or scratches over the edges or a cracked screen or even liquid damages, Yaantra can definitely help you to get your device back to life. We at Yaantra have a very talented group of certified technicians who can take care of all you mobile phone worries. So my friend give your phone a regular checkup.
