No one likes getting a notification that their phone is running out of space, especially when you have no idea what to keep and what should go.
The first step in clearing up storage on your phone is to find out just what is taking up all the space in the first place. But how can you do this? Here are a few things you can do to check what files are taking up storage on your Android phone.
1. Go to your storage settings
In your Settings menu, you'll find a storage section. This will give you a breakdown of what's taking up space on your phone. Depending on the brand of your phone, this menu might go by a different name, such as 'Storage', 'Device Maintenance', or something similar. Here you'll find how much space is dedicated to apps, videos, photos, audio and other files.
This doesn't provide much more detail than that, so you may want to use some additional tools to get a more specific look at what's hogging space.<...
