    I see a lot of discussion about bad battery life. I was experiencing it as well. Clearing the partition cache got me from 50% at the end of the work day to 75%. I think this should be put somewhere for all turbo owners to see as a "get your phone, immediately do this". And stickied. Just a thought and did not want to burry it in the long battery thread.

    Search these forums for "How to clear cache" from CKelly and you'll see it there.

    Be careful that you don't highlight something that will reset your phone!!

    And how often is this supposed to be done?

    Some clear the cache partition once a week, some once a month, and some when the phone is not performing normally.

    Should the cleaning take a long time? I'm at about 10 minutes now .. making me nervous.

    LATER: Whew! 10 minutes people! ;-) Don't worry, it'll come back and reboot on it's own.

    Mine got stuck once, never finished. had to reset. Phone then booted fine and I tried again and it was fast. No idea what was going on there.

    It should be quick, and it once was on the Droid Maxx, but since the 4.4.4 update (the version the Turbo is running) it usually takes about 10 to 20 minutes on the Droid Maxx. I'm not surprised that the Turbo is the same.

    I am trying to do mine again (did it when I got it, but have disabled a LOT since then) and it's still on the Android after 10 minutes... and it doesn't say "Erasing..." above the blue bar this time... lol. What is happening.

    And it finished. Phew!

    Does take a lot longer than previous phone. I didn't time mine but I'd guess 5 minutes or so - I'll admit, I was nervous taking so long.

    I got nervous after 5 minutes but did not think it wise to push buttons. Prayed and waited.

    Made it from 6 am to 10 PM with 50% left. A record by 30% for me.

    Clear the cache.

    What exactly is this process doing?

    Clears cached data from the phone. I guess it could help with battery life. It give the applications in the phone less garbage to search through, therefore using less battery and makes the phone more efficient.

    I got the silly No Command icon. Had to volume up for 10 sec then tap the power button to free it up.

    Just cleared my cache, the clearing process only took 2 minutes for me. Usually after 17 hrs off the charger I would have about 4.5 hrs of SoT and roughly 20% battery remaining, GSbattery estimates that i can get another hour of SoT with the remaining 20%. Lets see if the cache will improve on those numbers.

    I actually practiced this process on my N7 because the LP update turned it into a plastic brick. I redid the clearing process and got past that No Command nag. Will see if the process enlivens the LP blues.
