Make More Storage Space

As you use your phone, you’ll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to increase storage space.

Manage Photos and Videos

  • After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest, if you don't need them.
  • After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. Delete original files or move them to online storage or to your computer.
  • If you are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. High-resolution video takes up more space.
  • RAW image files take up a lot of storage space. It's recommended to use an SD card as the default storage for photos and videos. If your SD card is running low on space, consider moving RAW image files to your computer.

Remove Unused Themes

Themes can quickly consume storage space because themes can include images, sounds and icons. Remove themes you're not using. For details, see Delete a Theme.

Back up Data and Files

Keep only the most recent data in your apps and files that you often need to use. You can back up your other data and files. For some tips, see Backup.

Remove or Disable Apps

Uninstall apps that you've downloaded if no longer need them. See Uninstall Third-party Apps. Preinstalled apps can be disabled when you're not using them. See Disable Apps.

Move Apps to the SD card

Third-party apps that you've downloaded and installed can be moved to the SD card if you've set up the card as internal storage. See SD Card Storage Settings.
