Many people run out of storage on their mobile phones and they think- oh, its time to upgrade! What if you are not financially ready at the time to get a new device? In this article, a few tips have been put together to help you free up storage on your smartphone so you can use it much longer before thinking about upgrade.

Let us begin with a simple 'house cleaning' activity.

Google has a built-in free-up space tool located within the "Settings" on your phone. 

To get started, from "Settings," Locate "Storage"


Click "Free Up Space"

As that opens up, select the apps you do not use frequently, as shown below
Once you have done selecting, click "Delete" to completely remove such apps on your device, thereby creating storage space.


Clear Cache:

Cache is a location on most smartphones provided for storage of download history. The app cache stores history of your use of such apps so you don't keep downloading same thing all the time. Cache helps save data and time. However, data stored on cache slows the phone down. Now, these data stored on cache are for convenient and are not necessarily needed. Clear up cache to free your phone from slowing down.
Follow the steps below to clear cache:
Go to "Settings" on your smartphone

Locate "Apps & Notifications.:

Locate and click on any app you wish to clear the cache. For example Twitter, as shown below

Delete Downloads:

Your smartphone has a download folder. This is a folder where all the downloads you make on your phone- photos, videos, documents, and other files are stored. Most times, a lot of these downloads are not useful, just occupying space. For example, your pizza hut pictures, etc. The need to sieve through your download folder and isolate the less important ones, delete them and clear space.

To delete files on your phone  locate File Manager or My Files on the menu list.

Locate the file you intend to delete and get rid of it.


Make use of Google Cloud Storage:

Google has made available storage space available for every of your photos and videos on "Google Photos." This means you can backup all your photos on Google to free space on your device. Once photos are uploaded on Google Photos, your can delete them from the phone to create.

To upload photos on Google Photos, open "Google Photos."
Locate "Settings."
Locate "Back up & Sync." This will turn on the app and begin the upload.
Once you've backed up your photos using Google Photos, you can go to "Settings"  
Locate "Free up device storage", and Google Photos will delete any photos and videos that have been backed up.

Move apps to the microSD card

Apps probably take up most of the storage space on your phone. If you've got an Android phone that lets you add a microSD card for extra storage, you may be able to move some of your storage-sucking apps to that microSD card.

To do this, open Settings and go to

Locate "Applications"

 Locate "Application manager" and tap the app you want to move.

If the app can be moved, you will see a button that says Move to SD card -- tap this button to move the app to the microSD card. (On some phones, you may have to tap Storage to find this option.) Only part of the app will be moved to the microSD card. How much of the app will be moved depends on the app and, unfortunately, many large games will not move a significant portion of their data to the microSD card. This implies both the phone and MicroSD share the app.

Move apps to the trash

If you've tried all of these tips and you still need more space, there's no getting around it -- you're going to have to start deleting some things. You've probably got some (maybe several) apps on your device that you never use.

To figure out which apps are taking up the most space, 

Locate "Settings

Locate "Storage"

Locate "Apps." You'll see a list of apps sorted by size -- the biggest apps will the at the top of the list.

To delete an app you don't use, tap the app and then tap the "i" icon next to the app's name.

Tap "Uninstall" to get rid of the app.
