    A simple question: if I do a factory reset is there any technical advantage to clearing the cache. I'm always interested in learning something new.

    I used smart switch, but I also copied the contents of my SD card partition to my PC. I purposely didn't copy the boxing directory to my PC because I have it on my external hard drive, but after restoring with smart switch, the boxing directory was there.
    Smart switch did not backup my app data, but helium does that for many but not all apps.
    Thanks pool_shark, very good information!

    I don't know , but there is no danger to it, and there is no effort involved. So, when you are in the recover menu, I always click factory reset, then click clear cache... then reboot. No risk, no effort, only upside.

    I have been having issues with my note 5 and the wifi. No matter what wifi network I am connected to (home, office, familys) the phone is slow. I turn off the wifi and use the 4g network and the phone is fine. I have done a factory reset and the phone worked fine on the wifi for half a day and now it's slow again. This is all after I upgraded to android 6.0. Any thoughts on what I should do next?

    Some users have issues with BlueTooth and WiFi being on at the same time. Sometimes has to do with 2.4GHz or 5GHz WiFi. Do you have WiFi and BT on?
