If your Android phone is running slow, texting is choppy and you keep getting an insufficient storage error, you probably figure you have outgrown your phone and it’s time to upgrade to a device with more storage.
That is exactly what I thought until I went on a short exploration of my phone to figure out what exactly is taking so much space and slowing it down.
I don’t know about you but I personally don’t enjoy deleting pictures from my phone every time I need to update my Facebook app.
What I found was that once I cleared all the old data from my phone, it went back to running as fast as the day I got it!
I will now teach you how to clear all the storage you need and make your phone run like it was new again in just four steps:
Step 1: Clear Applications Cache
From your settings screen, navigate to device memory and clear the global cache.
Step 2: Delete your Deleted Emails
Yes it sounds redundant, but, your email app does not remove your old emails from the phone.
You need to navigate into your deleted emails and permanently delete your messages
Step 3: Delete your Voicemails
Voicemails are actually audio files that are downloaded to your phone.
Clearing your voicemails can free a substantial amount of space on your phone.
If you need a specific voicemail, you can export and save it to your computer.
Step 4: Delete your Text Messages
Text messages take very little storage space, but, can slow down sending and receiving text messages if your phone is using them to “learn” spelling.
Deleting old text threads can speed up any choppiness while texting.
In four simple steps your phone will go back to being good as new!
