‘Phone storage almost full. Consider deleting some files‘ is a common annoying pop-up on most smartphones. If you are a heavy Android phone user it may be hard deciding what files and apps you want to delete from your phone. In case you are faced with this dilemma, here is a short list to help you increase Android phone storage memory.
1) Apps and Games
Android has made it possible for us to download many apps including games that we rarely play. Sometimes they may take up too much space. This is the first place you should look to increase Android phone storage memory.
2) Clear Your Cache
Using your phone for a long time leads to the build up of useless cached information. Browser and mobile apps normally cache information to enable faster loading times without having to connect to the Internet server to fetch a web page. However, after a while, this cached store can become massive and use up valuable storage space. Clear the cache on your phone once in a while by going to ‘Settings‘ then ‘Manage my applications‘
4) Photos and Video
Videos take up much space on your phone especially if they are High Definition videos. Whatsapp videos can also be notorious at hogging storage space. If you do not want them to delete them, connect your phone to your laptop or PC, download them and then delete them on your phone. Do the same for photos.
3) Other Ideas
Finally, there are a number of other ways to increase Android phone storage memory. These include:
- Clearing your browsing history
- Deleting unused contacts
- Deleting completed tasks
- Deleting old messages
- Deleting the phone book log
