Let’s talk about the infuriating part about android device, no doubt it’s one of the best mobile Os out there, but speaking of cheap and annoying issues, you’ll find them mostly on Android device and some examples are low storage issues and screen overlay issues, but today I’ll be talking about how to free up internal storage space on android, so if you’re having any issues related to this, then you need to follow up with this article.
Most times when we try downloading a file or maybe an app, or we want to receive from other device, we see a popup notification saying our device is running low of internal storage, yeah it’s sometimes confusing because most poeple do use an sd card on thier phone, but still it shows device is running low of internal storage, few things are behind this and I’ll explain why it’s like that, we all know Android Os is an open source operating system, which means sometimes we have to set things the way we want it to be, and an example is setting our preferred storage location. Because if we don’t do this, most of our files and app will end up on internal storage and too much of it will make our device run low of memory. But thier are other things that can cause low internal storage, I’ll list them and also list how to nullify them.
5 Tips To Free Up Internal Storage Space On Android Device
1. Cache / How To Clear Cache
Cache is one the major cause to internal storage getting low, they’re invisible to human eyes and they get stored when we make activities like surfing the net, downloading of apps, having too much cache will not only cause low storage but will also reduce device performance, so if you want to know how to clear cache on your android device then follow this, Go to Settings>Storage>Application manager/Apps then select any app to clear the cache or you can Clear Cache By Navigating to Settings>Storage then scroll down till you see the cache folder, tap on it for total cache clearance.
2. Always Make Sure To Use Sd Cards(External Storage)
External storage is very important, mostly to android users, although some don’t take it important because most of the newly developed android devices do come with at least 16gb internal memory, but we all know the total space that can be used won’t exceed 10 to 12gb, but depending on how you use your device or the type of things you collect on, if you’re the type who download heavy apps, I’ll suggest you get and sd card and change your storage target location to external storage, by doing this, you’ll see much changes to your device internal storage.
3. Remove Duplicate Or Junk Files
Junk and duplicate files won’t do no good when they lay down inside our phone, junk files are mostly found when we uninstall a app, the leftovers from the apps are called junks, if you want to remove them, go to File manager> then choose sd card or phone memory, depending on the location which you installed the app to, Locate Android Folder locate delete the app leftover folder from there.
4. Using Lite Version Apps
Life has been easy with lite apps, if you’re an aaddict to social network, you’ll realise even facebook has two types, which are the normal facebook and facebook lite, the normal facebook stores a lot of data when you install it, so if you’re the type who doesn’t enjoy much of its memory consumptions, you can make use of the lute version, though their functions might be different.
5. Using Cloud Storage
Cloud storage are much more helpul than internal and external storage, with cloud storage you can keeps those heavy files that’s eating up your internal storage, cloud storage is very useful and with it you can’t loose any file for many years as you can count.
