the smartphones and tablets that are currently on the market just 16 or 32 GB of memory to a minimum and 64 or 128 GB in the best of cases. You can also increase the storage of your Android with an extension via microSD card.

Let’s see together how to use the native functions of Android to do this and go then to applications for improve memory utilization and earn some extra free space on your smartphone or tablet.

Win free space thanks to Android

it would be a shame not to take advantage of the features offered by your system while it offers already a few sympathetic to save storage space tools. Already the most important thing is to know how the data on your Android device.

Overall, these are applications that are likely to take the most space (if you use more than one), otherwise you’ll quickly fill the internal memory of your device with photos, music or videos. Indeed, multimedia content are one of the causes of memory saturation, and a reason that explains why consumers are looking for enough space memory on their smartphone or tablet.

the first and good idea is probably to do housekeeping on your device . Perhaps you have content that better find space on other storage media (computer, CD, USB key,…) because it is also unclear what might happen with my personal data. To do this, I gladly invite you to follow our tutorial for backup of your personal data .

After that, you should already see more clearly and even have won quite a place to start. If this is not enough, you can look to your applications. It is possible that you use that little compared to what you downloaded . Why not uninstall some applications and clean residual files?

Last resort before you look any further: your applications for most use a cache system . The latter although practical could quickly become big, or even pointless according to what is stored. And let’s say that you use certain applications that rarely, keep the cache would be useless. To remove it, go in ‘Settings’ , and then ‘Applications’ .

choose the application for which you want to delete the cache . In my case, this will be the application ‘Chrome’ . Once made on my page, down a bit, you can find the part “CACHE” with a line giving the size of the current cache:

vider cache application

then simply click on the button “Empty the cache” , and you will notice that the operation has been completed successfully, although in some cases , there’s a few kilobytes, but y do not pay attention.

If you want to go further than that and you still sorely miss memory internal, the Android system will not be enough. At least he will need help with a few interesting applications or tips to earn free space . So let’s see this more in the next part of this tutorial.

Tips for saving space on internal memory

the Android system is rich with the Google Store Play including offering a whole bunch of applications to take care of memory internal phone . However, we will see that some of them because it would be impossible to go around everything, so here’s what I propose.

Clean Master, the benchmark for cleaning on Android

Clean Master is really THE thing to have on my Android device . It allows fast and effective cleaning of the cache of all your applications, temporary files, browsing history, call logs, SMS/MMS, the residue after uninstalling an application and even what optimize your RAM and manage your current applications.

Clean Master

If you want to use it and see what it returns , you can find our article on Clean Master and proceed now to the cleaning.

Little more also: Uninstalling next to one of your applications, if the latter files have not been deleted, Clean Master will offer to do so, in order to keep a clean system .

Store its data online

is another way to earn a bit of space on your device store your data (documents) and personal content on the Cloud . This alternative is not to everyone’s taste, but if you don’t mind letting your data over the internet, you can choose an application like Dropbox to do:

you just create an account and you will already have a few gigabytes of free storage to to host some of your data.

The best apps to backup your data


otherwise, you can of course turn to Google applications, namely Google Docs If you have material to write or use the famous Google Drive to host all your files, power read any device and even share :

this should be not bad for keep your data and free up space on your phone or Tablet who will appreciate this new comfort well.

Delete unnecessary applications

on all applications installed on your smartphone , how much use you really? Three quarters, half or only a few. By doing a little sorting through my app drawer , you can easily find applications that we almost never use. Why keep them on my smartphone because a simple deletion would be sufficient to free up some storage space?

To remove an application, simply you:

  • make you in settings > Applications

  • click on the application you want to want to uninstall

supprimer application

in addition, despite the proposed optimizations more high and even regularly emptying the cache of applications, some like Facebook still occupy a lot of space. At this level, there is no real solution to the problem, except Delete Facebook and use the mobile site , instead, so that you can, in addition, winning independently .

Regularly transfer your photos to your PC

If you have a smartphone new and upscale with a photo of 13 or 16 Megapixels sensor and you regularly take photos, so it is not surprising that your storage space based like snow in the Sun. The photos in high resolution take place and videos still more.

In this case, it will promote above all good Eve method which is to regularly empty the photos and videos taken with your phone on the hard drive of your PC via a USB cable. More so now that Google Photos stores all the images in the cloud , you can always access it via your smartphone, even if these are more present locally.

prefer streaming to local storage

most of you use streaming services musical [194590[21] as Deezer, Spotify, Apple Music or Google Play music. From there, and if you have a package data result or frequently use its Wifi smartphone, it becomes unnecessary to store your MP3 in your smartphone memory since you already have access to your entire music library.

In addition, outside its streaming service, Google Play music allows you, even in its free version, store up to 50 000 titles in the cloud. Suffice to say that you won’t miss a space. So, you can use this trick to store your MP3 files elsewhere on your phone while keeping there access even if you don’t have unlimited access to the service or use a competing platform for streaming.

Install a ROM Builder or custom

another way to earn a little extra space on your phone or tablet, is to opt for another ROM. Maybe your current system has one overlay SFR or Bouygues Telecom , and the latter is supplemented by applications (often unnecessary) operator.

applications operateur

move to a builder application would already be a gain free space . For example, if you have a Samsung device, you could install a ROM official Samsung. Of course, you’d have the overlay TouchWiz of society, but you win already in place on the memory.

But if this solution is not enough and you’re not afraid to make some manipulations on your device, you can also turn to a custom, which is carried out by developers ROM third but all perform as well and who deserves to take very little space in memory for most.


so I can naturally offer the best-known ROM: CyanogenMod . With it, you should soon see the difference, and Maybe you will finally have enough room (to the extent possible to agree).

Buying a card external memory

this case concerns only people who would have not extended to the maximum their device with a micro SD card memory. Just check the maximum space that supports smartphone or Tablet (32 or 64 GB) and get a supported maximum capacity microSD card. The latest high-end support up to 256 GB via micro SD.

stockage carte SD

you’re lucky, these cards are not among the most expensive market, and the brands I recommend you are Kingston (with a lifetime warranty ), Sandisk or otherwise, a brand like Samsung but always stay on reliable hardware and not a sub-brand that could read and write performance problems on the micro SD.

How to choose my card microSD for your Android smartphone


this is the end of this tutorial. We’ve seen quite a lot even when throughout the latter, and you now have all the cards (or almost) on hand for do cleanup on your smartphone or Tablet and have too much to complain about a lack of space on your Android device.
