Most modern smartphones are equipped with internal memory from 8GB to 256GB (these are already flagships). 8 gigabytes of memory is quite enough for installing applications and several “heavy” toys – this will run out of memory.
There are 2 solutions to the problem:
- Constantly monitor the storage, clean it, remove unnecessary applications, optimize memory.
- Save part of the data to the memory card, including applications + cache, photos and videos, music.
To configure and optimize the internal memory, go to the storage: Settings – Storage.
Here you can find all the information about the used interior space in your smartphone.
Not all 8GB are available to the user, about 40% is occupied by the Android system itself. A little more space is taken by standard pictures / photos and ringtones / sounds.
To free up space on your phone, click on the “Free up space” icon with Go Files. The system will offer to remove unused applications. In my case, you can free up 24MB.
At the bottom of the screen, you will see 3 options:
- Cleaning – automatically search for unused applications and remove them.
- View – manually view which files can be deleted by category.
- Sharing – fast offline file exchange (via wi-fi) with other users. As an option for cleaning the internal space of the phone.
To delete music, photos and videos, games, applications manually, just select the category of the same name.
You can uninstall an installed application, clear its cache, or manage its data (where to save it: in the phone memory or on a microSD card).
Always keep track of the available memory in your phone, do not overload the gadget with unnecessary files and games, install applications and save media files on the memory card. And then you won't have problems with the internal storage.
