9 tips to survive on limited internal storage on Android

These days, almost all phones are released in multiple variants depending on their internal storage. Smart phones of 8, 16, 32, 64 and now some with up to 128 GB of internal storage have been released. Internal storage is one of the first things that a person considers when buying a new phone and although some people may opt for 32 or 64 GB storage, not everyone can afford that storage luxury. The price difference between an 8 GB model and a 32 GB model is very important, so most people are satisfied with thinking that it is more than enough.

But what we don't realize is that no matter how much storage you have, never be enough. To add salt to the lesions, even the system user interface occupies a part of its internal storage. You buy an 8 GB phone and realize that you only have about 6 to start, and even with a 16 GB variant you can only use about 12.

In a situation like this, if your phone is not compatible with external storage, you are likely to say goodbye to your favorite songs and videos. Now, although most people with little storage space will do the same innocently, we will show you to do something different. Let's talk about 9 useful tips on how to survive intelligently in a limited internal storage space.

1. Avoid installing heavy applications and games

After getting an Android phone, many people go crazy in the Play Store by installing all the applications that get their attention. In this wild spree, people do not realize that their storage space may not be on par with their enthusiasm. When installing any application, you should remember that many applications such as Facebook, Skype, etc. they will continue to create more and more application data for themselves and all this will be stored in their internal storage.

Similarly, games like FIFA, Need For Speed, Asphalt, Final Fantasy, etc., as impressive as they are, are the worst enemies of storage. Note that many games also download content after installation, which can be a couple of GB in size, so don't download anything without first checking these things.

2. Lower the image capture resolution of your camera

You can question our judgment on this, since the common idea is that the more megapixels the better the image quality. Actually, that is not entirely true. Megapixels actually determine the size of the image. Quality is affected by many other things, such as lens quality, shutter speed, lighting level, etc.

Therefore, unless you are planning to view your images on a large screen or get large prints, you can reduce the resolution of the camera without worrying too much about it. If you are going to see your snapshots on your phone or upload them to a social networking site, reduce the resolution, for example, from 13 or 8MP to 5 or 3, just affect its quality noticeably.

3. Lower the video capture resolution

Just as to reduce the resolution of your camera, the resolution of video capture can also decrease. The reason is simple. What is the use of recording a 4k video on a phone that does not even support viewing 4k videos? The fact that you have the option to record a video in Full HD does not mean you have to. If these videos are only designed to be viewed on your phone, then they don't need to be Full HD.

Recording videos in HD or a lower resolution is more than adequate for viewing on your device. The 640 x 480 resolution is perfect for a 5 or 6-inch screen and also save you a lot of storage space.

4. Avoid carrying your entire music library

It has limited storage space and you need to use it intelligently, so what does it do? Avoid copying the entire library from your laptop or PC and only copy the songs you really listen to. Your laptop may have enough space for 10,000 songs, but your phone cannot. Be cautious and just keep songs that you will really hear, that error that appears saying that low storage space is not music for your ears.
