    It is a recommended practice to wipe the cache partition after a major update, especially when upgrading to a newer version of Android. This allies the system to start caching on the newer build and erase the cache from from the older version, which may cause some conflicts.

    it seems there is no way to do a bulk erase of the cash. You must erase the cache on each individual app if you choose to do so. From what I read it is not an advisable idea

    By what I have read, Oreo handles app cache in a different way to Nugget, the cache is automatically restricted and deleted when necessary in each app. I have been using Oreo for a while and the cache has not built up as much as it did before Oreo, and now seems to have settled to a level.

    You can do complete cache wipe either from recovery or from the bootloader. Either are safe and will cause no problems. I did it on mine from recovery immediately after first boot from the upgrade.

    Yep, got mine yesterday in the UK. Gained 1/2 Gb of storage but I think it will soon disappear as it did with the Oreo update.

    Those are different processes and delete different files. The cache partition wipe from recovery will delete temporary system files and it won't free additional storage, since this partition is reserved. Clearing cached data from the settings (apps or storage) will delete files used by your apps and it will give you some extra free storage.

    Talking about the update and storage. After the latest update if you go to settings - storage it takes ages for the screen to load. Have you noticed that? It's been the same on a G5+ and a G5S+.

    No, on my G5 it's instantaneous.

    Strange, double checked now and it took almost two minutes. I'll try wiping the cache partition again.

    Yet, that will work. Temporarily. When you open and begin using the app, the cache will rebuild. It is there to speed up load times, continually deleting it does no good in the long run.

    So is the only potential issue the difference in sensitivity of the finger sensor on the bottom? How is this working out? I use the quick swipes on my G5+ (US) so would not be happy if I couldn't use them any more.

    Any other issues, provided you clear the cache partition after updating?

    FYI.
    Update on storage gained after security update. It's taken 4 weeks to loose the extra storage gained after the update, as I said, it's not unexpected, I guess it's just the cache building up again as I haven't added any more apps or photos.
