What will happen if I clear my "cache data" from my phone?

I really want to make space on my phone so I could download some games but it won't let me because everytime I try to download a game it says "there is insufficient space on your device". I really don't know what cache data is. So, what will happen if I clear my "cache data" from my phone. The phone I have is called an ALACATEL One Touch Fierce.

It's this one:

  • it won't make a big difference. Looks like you only have 4gb on your phone. Thats tiny. BUT you have an SD card slot, so all isn't lost.

    Go to amazon and buy a 32 (no larger) gb sd card with a high speed rating, and put it in your phone, you should then have all the space you could desire

  • Cache data is things like thumbnails and other browser data it is completely safe to delete that (from with in the phone settings).

    The other cache that you access from teh recovery menu is NOT safe to remove.

    I recommend installing ccleaner and it will do it for you in a way that you can understand and select what parts of the cache it deletes.

  • clearing cache won't give you more space you can try it you won't lose any data

  • I think it clears all the history for an app. Kind of like resetting.

    I did it with the YouTube app to save storage. I don't think it helped with storage problem.

  • Nothing happens. You just clear your browser history
