Internal memory (RAM): LG G4

Learn how to use the task manager and free up memory on the LG G4.

 

 

 

Manage memory

Restart device regularly

You should restart your phone at least once per day.

  1. Press and hold the Power key.
  2. Tap Power off and Restart.

Reduce memory use

Animated widgets and widgets that update information use the most memory. If your phone is running slow, you can reduce the amount of memory it is using:

  • Replace a live wallpaper
    1. From any Home screen, long-tap the home screen, then tap Wallpapers.
    2. Tap either Gallery or Multi-photos.
    3. Follow the prompts to set a new wallpaper that replaces the current Live wallpaper.
  • Remove widgets
  • Remove unused Home screens
    1. From any Home screen, long-tap the home screen.
    2. Touch and hold the desired home screen.
    3. Drag the home screen over Remove to delete.

    Manage apps to keep your device running smoothly

    • Use Manage apps to update apps, clear app cache and data, recent apps, and uninstall an app.
    • Never install a third-party Task Manager or Battery Manager. These apps interfere with how device software works.
    • Research and monitor new apps that you install.
      • Read app reviews before installing. Not all apps run smoothly on phones. Read customer reviews before downloading an app to see if it has a history of not working properly.
      • If your device starts having problems after installing an app, consider uninstalling the app. (See Manage apps.)
    • Keep applications updated
    • Uninstall third-party applications
    • Clear application cache and data
    • Clear recent applications
