Phone’s Running Out Of Storage? Tips To Free Up Space

Monday 14th February 0
Free up space

Decluttering your phone, like decluttering your home, is essential so you can download more helpful apps, store relevant media, and make your device work more smoothly.

When comparing smartphone specifications, we frequently come across “storage” and “memory” features. These two names are frequently used interchangeably, although there is a significant distinction between them.

The space where you keep data such as media and images is referred to as storage (also known as ROM). When the operating system and programs are in use, however, memory (RAM) is reserved for them.

Tips To Free Up Space

  1. Use Device’s storage cleanup tool

Smartphones usually include a built-in storage cleaner. Select “Storage” from the “Settings” menu. You’ll see a list of how much storage each application is using. Choose “Clean Up” or something like that. It will take you to the data for each application and allow you to clear one of the categories.

If your phone doesn’t already have one, you can get one from the Google Play Store.

  1. Clear your browser history and cache

Find “Privacy options” in your phone’s browser (or Firefox and Chrome), then press “Clear browsing data.” Depending on your preferences, this could include frequently visited websites, login history, stored passwords, and Cached images and files. You can also choose to clear data for a certain period of time.

  1. Use Free Cloud storage apps

Uploading data and photographs to the internet, among other options, is the better technique. It not only saves space on your phone, but it also allows you to access information from one device to another by connecting and utilizing the same account. This is particularly useful for working people who need to switch between devices often.

Google Photos is a typical example. You may choose to back up and sync your images automatically once they’ve been taken. It includes limitless free storage for high-quality files with smaller file sizes. Based on your total Google storage account, there’s a beginning 15GB free space for original quality and size. You may also upgrade to 100GB of storage for Php89 per month. For iPhone users, there are other cloud programs such as OneDrive and iCloud.

  1. Delete unnecessary videos, music, and apps

If you’re one of those people that downloads TV series episodes from Netflix but never watches them, this is for you. You may save them for later but wind up watching something else. For the time being, there’s no need to download these episodes since we’re always connected to our Wi-Fi or we have mobile data.

In terms of applications, go through them one by one and honestly tell yourself if you’re not using them (even though you say you would). This might include health applications, picture editors, and games you only play once in a while. You’ll be able to conveniently dispose of them this way.

  • Simply Uninstall

All smart device apps are uninstallable unless they are predefined by your unit’s original equipment manufacturer, such as bloatware. That is to say, any program you knowingly placed on your device may be simply deleted by you, the user, at any time.

  • Disable If It Cannot Be Uninstalled

Looking at the meaning of the term “bloatware,” there are certain apps that are just impossible to remove by design as if they are essential to the device’s core system—this is simply incorrect, yet it is a typical occurrence, you just need to disable them.

  1. Remove old photos and videos

Take a look back at the photographs and movies from previous years. Decide which of them are really precious, and toss the others. Screenshots of chats and memes that you saved to share with your friends are the perfect examples. Accept that they aren’t memories worth retaining, but rather something you loved for a brief while.

If you wish to save them, you may first transfer them to free cloud storage programs like OneDrive, Google Drive, and iCloud.


Have you ever discovered that your smart device has one or more applications loaded that you don’t want but can’t delete for whatever reason, and you need to free up space? The tips above are some basic methods for freeing up space on your Android smartphone. Is there anything we’ve overlooked? Let us know if you have any queries in the comments section below.
