Since I started posting for help re: browser and other apps like clock, I've found the suggestion to clear caches recurs frequently.  Surely this is an OS development issue, isn't it?   Can I find anywhere consumer/public info about how Samsung might be taking steps to make their devices more efficient?

The suggestion to Wipe Cache appears frequently, but only for people who may be experiencing some issues. 

As soon as the Cache is wiped, it gets rebuilt almost instantly. 

The reason for the suggestion, is that some unwanted "jun*k" may be the cause of an issue, whether it's misbehaving app, or a system slowdown. 

It's not something that is normally required. 

In fact, I don't remember the last time that I wiped the cache on my device, other than my Routine of Booting into Recovery after any Security Patch Update (probably isn't even necessary, just my habit). 

But other than that haven't had any reason to.

Hi, as suggested by RedDogRabbit if you clear the cache it will clear out all the unwanted cache files on your device.

Also, please send an error report using Samsung members app by following below steps:

Tap and hold on samsung Members Icon and tap on Error report >> select the category from the below >> Describe the issue and check the option "send system log data" then send.
