    Default Cached Data Option

    So I updated my S4 to kitkat and all went well cept for a few missing apps here and there. Its alright tho, no big deal. But I noticed there was this option under storage in my S4 and its taking up some space but I dont know what it is. Could someone clarify what it is and what would happen if I deleted the data in "Cached data".

    From my Sammy Galaxy S4

    Default Re: Cached Data Option

    I'm sure the cached data is used by apps and Web pages to keep them running smoothly. If it is deleted or cleared the will be some lag or wait caused by the Web or apps having to restart or gather the info that would be cached instead.
