How to free up storage space on your Samsung Galaxy phone

One of the ways to get more out of your Samsung Galaxy phone is to increase its storage space so you can store more photos, videos or documents. For this purpose, the Android system that controls the phone offers the possibility of expanding its internal memory by adding a microSD memory card.

Adding a microSD memory card is very simple, since it is enough to insert it into the slot or tray that the phone has for this purpose. But if you want to save yourself this step and, therefore, the expense of some coins, we show you a couple of tricks with which you can generate additional space on your Samsung Galaxy cell phone.

Free up space by dialing a secret code

First go to Settings > Device care > Storage and check the available space. Now, exit this screen and go into the calling app. Next, dial the code *#9900#.

Once the SysDump menu appears, click on the Delete dumpstate/logcat option. Once this light process is done, restart your phone.

Next, return to the screen described in the first step and check that the available space has increased without having to delete any data.

Clear data and cache of apps installed on the phone

This trick is very effective. In addition, its application is very simple and does not entail risks for the operation of the device, since the files that are going to be deleted are not part of the operating system. Rather it is configuration data and temporary files that only serve to speed up the processor’s access to applications. Follow these instructions.

Go to Settings > Applications. Click on the name of each application installed on the phone. One at a time. Then tap on the Storage option. On the screen that opens, tap Delete data, and then tap OK.

With this step you will also have cleared the cache of each selected application. Optionally, you can just click on Clear cache, however, the space recovered will be somewhat less. Once this set of operations is finished, reboot the phone.
