    Default Question about caches vs. cache partition

    I am just wondering... is going into recovery mode and deleting/clearing the cache partition the same thing as going thru your apps manually in the app manager and clearing the caches, or is it something different?

    Just curious if it makes sense to do both or if theyre one and the same.

    They're different. The app caches are simply temporarily stored data for each app. The system cache partition holds various temporary system data, most notably downloaded .apk installer files for apps you install from Google Play.
