These days we have various ranges of phones with amazing internal storage spaces leaving you susceptible to the junk, cache, duplicates and other needless files, questioning the once priced jewel you now see as a piece of crap.
These easy steps will show you how to free up space on your phone External storage system, and even phones without an external SD card have a lot to benefit from it.
- Save photos and videos to external Storage Device card by default rather than internal storage
- How can this be done? Simple!
- Just go to settings,
- Tap on storage, and look for default write disk
- Then select your external Storage Device, SD, card.

- Using tools such as clean master or disk usage
The Clean Master can move files saved into a certain folder to another, while the Disk Usage shows a graphic representation of size and usage.
The clean master moves files and helps delete junk files. It also has an overall functionality on your android phone, designed to be your Phone’s Personal Assistant when it comes to managing your phone.

If you want to do this manually, you can choose your cloud photo backup service of choice. Upload, and then delete the local copies.
