Storage is one of the most important thing that can influence your Android experience. And if you are using an Android phone, then I know you would like your phone’s storage filled up, and if you have already reached your storage limit here are some tips that might be useful.

1. Save your Photos and Videos on SD by default.

This one of the most effective way to save your phone’s storage. I know many of you already know this, but this is very helpful info for newbies and it saves you a lot of space on you phone’s internal storage.


Open your phone’s camera app go to Settings and then find Storage and click on it and set the default storage to MicroSD / Memory Card.

This will save all your pics and videos directly to your memory card, which will save you a lot of storage. And don’t forget to move all your photos and videos to memory card, which you clicked before making this setting.

2. Install apps to SD card by default

Well, frankly speaking, this option is not available for all the Android phone out there, but for those who have this option in their phones, this is a very useful option to save a lot of your phone’s storage. This will install compatible apps directly to your phone’s external storage i.e memory card, when you download them through play store.

But if you don’t have this option, still you can manually move installed apps to your memory card. This can be done by, heading over to Settings then moving to Apps and then go to the apps which you want to move to external storage and then tap on the option to Move to SD card. This will pop-out a message to confirm it and tap have Ok to confirm. This option is also not available in all Android phone but I guess most of them have it.
