What is Cache Memory?
According to Wikipedia's definition, a cache is a hardware or software component that stores data so that future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation or a copy of data stored elsewhere.

In a lay man's language, a cache is a storage space that lets you store data temporarily which also helps or aids your device browser or app to run faster when carrying out any operation on your phone.

How does it affect your phone's speed and performance?
It is unfortunate that quite a number of individuals are unaware of the existence of this word(cache) and where exactly it is located. When you download movies, music, photos, apps, and several other things downloadable, you fill up your memory space.

Where is the cache found?
It is found on your phone app.

Random Access Memory is the storage that houses data. Depending on the size of your phone's RAM, the bigger the size, the higher the speed of your device, and the smaller the RAM, the lower the speed of your phone. So you see, the size of your RAM affects the performance of your phone also. Check your RAM level always and keep it cleaned in order to enjoy your phone freely without any hinge.
