    So as the title suggests, is there a way/option to auto clear all cache from apps?

    That is the type of feature I’d think people behind SD Maid Pro would be into. Up their alley and trustworthy.

    Some browsers create large cache, can also clear on exit. Also photo libraries. Both types may benefit from clearing their cache. Chrome or Edge, definitely. I had an 80GB photo library. Ended up moving 60GB off to the SDXC which is kept unmounted most of the time. It was getting sluggish and slow plus impossible to find a photo and album to share from inside social media apps. Clearing a cache can trigger building new index.

    Device Care and Maintenance wants to close or put apps to sleep to preserve battery, restart on a regular basis, and should look at temp files that can be cleared out.

    I have the 12/128 S20 Ultra (only version of S20 Ultra sold in Indonesia) and Chrome and Youtube takes 2GB to 3GB per month... Well i can manually clear cache but it takes work xD

    those 2 are the biggest culprit...i find it disturbing if my phone has less than 100GB available out of the 128GB...like you know the low memory sensor in my head...

    you can delete the residual files left over by different apps In the Settings of the App Cache Cleaner app, you can choose Auto Clear Interval and then pick an interval after which you want to automatically clear the cache.

    What else is using your storage , those 2 apps can't be only ones contributing.

    I know as usual I'm a little late to the party. Usually restarting the device helps keep caches under control as many times part of the powering off process is to close apps and clear caches. You could try scheduling weekly or even twice a week restarts. See if that helps with your issue as it's already built into the device, would automatic and could be scheduled when it's not likely to interrupt your schedule.

    Third party apps can do the job and will often do all apps which can be helpful. For me the real issue is finding apps that work, that I can trust and that don't give me a bunch of extras that I don't want or need. With you being in Indonesia availability vs what I might recommend could be an issue so I'd say look for an app with a high rating.

    Look for Ccleaner. If memory serves it has an option to clear all of the devices caches in one go. I think they started including some extra functions and there's a premium version $$ of course. When I've used it in the past typically I use it and uninstall it. I've never been in a situation where I've felt the need to use it for more than just like a specific purpose. If the other isn't doing what you want and this is available to you it's pretty good.

    I still would be curious if you might not get the same results just by doing regular restarts. Do you have any automatic restarts scheduled? How often? I mean Android is meant to be fairly autonomous, even if you look around these boards and think otherwise. LOL.

    Well I'd say that never, or hardly ever, restarting your device is a huge factor. Regular restarts are healthy for devices. Restarting not only clears out caches but it stops background processes, reboots the OS, UI and apps, works as a defragmenter for the drive and calibrates the battery. I'm surprised that having owned Samsung devices in the past you were never prompted to restart your device. These device health/device care pop-ups were one of the first things I noticed when I got my first Samsung.

    These things are small computers and just like no one would leave their PC or laptop running endlessly these devices can't run endlessly. I'd bet if you got on a regular restart cycle you'd find that you like this device again. Plus using auto restart you wouldn't even notice it was happening or have to remember to do it. Set it and forget it. <-- Sorry that would probably be funny if you were from the States, it's a hook line for a well known commercial, LOL. I mean what could it hurt, just to see if things get better while you're waiting for your new device.

    I know what you mean about a feel. I got bright shiny HTC U12+ and it had a lot of bells and whistles but it just never rang my bell. The S10+ I got to replace it was a whole different story though. I was actually shocked at how much I liked it. At the time it felt like it had been forever since I was really excited about a device. Very recently I got the S20+ to replace it and I'm actually kind of eh about it. I mean for the most part it is still the S10 with a little extra. I considered waiting for next year's model but we do secession in my household and someone down the line needed a device so I figured with the price being what it was and not really sure if I want to pay the Samsung Flagship Full Price next year I figured what the hey. I wouldn't say I was disappointed just not over the moon.

    Anyway, I hope that restart schedule does you some good. I really have faith that it will. I'm a bit surprised that the Note 10 didn't have the same notifications as the S10 being the same generation.

    Best wishes
