    Don't use an SD card and disable VZWAVSService. Those two changes have reduced my Android System usage from the 20-30% range to single digits and increased battery remaining after a 15 hour day from 10-12% to over 30%. The average Battery Life on reported GSam has increased by an hour and is still going up as time passes with these changes in place.

    Sorry, didn't even stop to think about where you live or what cell service you use. VZWAVSService is a preloaded Verizon app that nobody seems to know for sure what it does. Verizon tech support won't even say! Disabling it has had no effect on the phone, however. Disabling it did have a positive effect on my battery life.

    this action has been known to help battery life - especially after OS updates -

    Clearing the Phone's Cache Partition:

    NOTE: If your phone's performance is low, if the device crashes, freezes etc. then chances are that you're considering applying a factory reset. However, as you might already know, a factory reset will result in the deletion of all personal data stored on the device's internal memory, and it will return the phone's settings to factory values. As such, it's recommended that you first try solving these issues by clearing the phone's cache. By doing so, you won't lose any personal data.

    1. Turn off the smartphone
    2. With the device shut down, press and hold the "Volume Up", "Home" and "Power" keys
    3. After the smartphone vibrates once, release the "Power" key but keep pressing "Volume Up" and "Home"
    4. At the "Android System Recovery" screen, release all hardware buttons
    5. From the recovery menu, press "Volume down" to navigate to and highlight "wipe cache partition"
    6. Press "Power" to select the option
    7. After the cache partition has been wiped, a "Reboot system now" message / option will be highlighted
    8. Press "Power" to reboot your smartphone

    Is that your way of saying you can't wipe the cache partition, Hamzeh? I'm confused about that myself. Some say that you can't do a cache partition wipe on the G3, and others say that you can. LGElectronics in another thread recommended an app cached data wipe to a member who wanted to do a system cached data wipe, so perhaps the latter is not easily done.

    Any members actually done it successfully?

    Those instructions are for Samsung phones, which have a physical home button. Whoever wrote that clearly never tried to follow the directions. To boot into recovery on an LG G3, try this:

    How to Enter Recovery Mode on LG G3

    Note that this might not work on Verizon G3's you might have to skip step 3 and 4, and just hold the power buttons down the entire time.

    Did you recently updated your skype app? If yes, then try uninstalling it - I had the same problem.
