    When i clear cache from the option under storage setting it's not working. It shows it cleared the cache but in the background it's increasing the size of the "Other" folder just above the cache option. And the size of "other" folder keeps on increasing everytime i do this. I tried clearing cache from recovery menu but the size of "other" folder remained intact.
    It's kinda loophole.

    In order to resolve the issue reported ASAP, we would like to get some information and your data is under the protected, could you please refer to content below and provide the information for analysis?

    5. Can you kindly help to collect some logs so that we can look into it?

    1. Input *#800# from dialing interface, enter "oneplus logkit", tap" delete history log"
    2. Tap "advanced", choose "save log type" > enable all options then click OK
    3. Tap “move log path to built-in SD card” and then click "save log", when it informs you whether to reboot, click “cancel”
    4. (Important) Reproduce the issue and record the issue happening time. (Please take screenshots on storage & memory before and after clearing cache.)
