Moto G 3rd gen slow


#1

My moto G 3rd generation has been operating very slowly. all apps have a delayed opening and seem to respond slowly. Battery doesn’t seem to hold charge as long. I moved a lot of apps to the SD card. Could that have caused my problem. Thanks

@cyrilp.b Try clearing the Android System Cache. Steps found here:

That sounds like it may be hung up doing something other that what want it to.

  • 3rd party apps can be eliminated as a cause by booting up in Safe Mode (Power button, then long press the ‘Power Off’ until a you will get a pop-up allowing you to ‘Reboot to safe mode’ … Select OK
    • If this fixes, then a bad app or recently updated app would be at fault

Thank you very much. I cleared the cache, which I do periodically, as you suggested and also did the safe mode boot as jben suggested. It seemed to be performing a little faster. I am going to try to avoid the factory reset, at least for the time being. Thank you again for your help.
