At some point, almost everyone has tried to take a picture or download a game on their phone and gotten an alert that their profile storage space is full. Normally, smartphones start with around 16 gigabytes of storage space, but comes with around 2 gigabytes of pre-downloaded games. Even though phone users can’t control the amount of storage a game takes, there are some ways to free up some phone storage space. One way to free up space is to delete any games, applications, or pictures that you no longer need or use. Next, if your phone accepts a memory card, investing in one could double or triple the storage space on your phone. Another way to gain some space is to delete any downloaded music or movies on your phone and use streaming services instead. Lastly, instead of storing all your documents and pictures in your phone’s storage, you can move them to the cloud for easy access. Most cloud services allow users to store up to 15 gigabytes for free. Hopefully these tips will help you find some more storage space on your phone!
