Greetings to everyone in the family.
As we use our smartphones as our daily driver for most of the tasks we carry out be it web browsing, texting, calling, office work or entertainment, our devices tend to get clogged due to some reasons from time to time. I was scrolling through the community threads and I found a thread stating a problem regarding the Mi File Explorer which was continuously crashing due to "OutOfMemoryError" Exception. This sort of crash can be experienced on any android application as they are written in Java or Kotlin.
Let us get to the easy fix for this. You can try these steps to make things right. [Note: These aren't steps]
Understanding OutOfMemoryError Exception in Java
In Java, all objects are stored in the heap. They are allocated using new operator. The OutOfMemoryError Exception in Java looks like this:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
Usually, this error is thrown when the Java Virtual Machine cannot allocate an object because it is out of memory, and no more memory could be made available by the garbage collector.
OutOfMemoryError usually means that you’re doing something wrong, either holding onto objects too long, or trying to process too much data at a time. Sometimes, it indicates a problem that’s out of your control, such as a third-party library that caches strings, or an application server that doesn’t clean up after deploys. And sometimes, it has nothing to do with objects on the heap.
The Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError exception can also be thrown by native library code when a native allocation cannot be satisfied (for example, if swap space is low).
In simple words, this sort of crashes due to:
Note: Buggy Updates are a very rare case. This happens only if you are in the Alpha or Beta stage. The release version of programs are mostly free from such issues.
