3 Tips to Unclutter Your Android Phone & Maximise Built-In Memory

There are four reasons why a smartphone (in general) might not run smoothly or in the way user would expect it to work:

–          Smartphones with low built-in memory

–          No microSD expansion slot support

–          Devices with bloat-ware installed

–          Users in low-signal areas, that causes the battery drain in search of signal/network

Although users cannot do anything to counter the last point, there are solutions to the other three problems. According to CNET, there are three things any Android users can do to free up their built-in and expandable memory. This includes eliminating downloaded files, transferring these files to other devices or backing them up in any form of cloud storage. In addition, this should help in automatically backing up media files and also help in clearing cached data from the installed apps.

File Manager

File manger apps come handy when it comes to organizing or storing files/data; especially with downloaded files from emails, networking sites, blogs among others. The most recommend File Manager app is ‘ES File Explorer’. This app works in tandem with many cloud based services like Google Drive, Box, SkyDrive and Dropbox to provide an efficient way of organizing data.

Readers who are interested in getting cheaper cloud storage option should check-out iDrive, which offers 50 GB of cloud storage for just 0.99 cents (year-after-year).

Cache Management

Every time a user installs an app on the device, a folder is created to save user settings, images, files, and logs. According to CNet, “each time a user watches a video on Instagram the data is cached (stored) on the device, which allows the video to load quickly upon trying to view the same content again. But how many times are you going to watch the same video (unless it’s ridiculously funny or cute)?”
