Introduction


Now probably this is not the first article that you are reading about on How to free up space on your device,  
There are tons of other articles available on the internet for the same, Now for all you folks who are reading this Article I assure you that by the end of this article you will be able to free up GBs of data from your device.

There was a time when we all use computers and laptops for our every work like storing data, Watching movies, listening songs or for doing any other work but with the time we all started 
relying on Smartphones and now most of us use their smartphones as their primary device for doing almost every kind of work.



One of the major problems that we face with smartphones is 
that they tend to fill quickly with storages.
No matter how much storage you get on your internals or how Efficiently you use your smartphone, And as soon as the phone gets out of storage it starts showing lagging, App Crashing, Non-responsive Touches and many other Signs. 

So here in this article, I will share with you some of the epic ways to clean out the junk from your phone without losing any of your Important data. 

Cloud Storage - Although there are many cloud storage platforms are available on the internet like Microsoft Onedrive, Dropbox, iDrive But I will suggest you to go with Google photos because despite being free it offers Some great premium features, 
like Unlimited Storage and Collaboration but today we are more to focus on some of its tricks by which you can free up couples 
of GBs on your phone and which also helps you in backing up Unlimited photos on the Google photos App.

 
In order to free up space in your device you need to back up 
your photos first or if you have already backed up your photos then you can skip to the Second part.

First part : Backing up photos -

Open Google Photos app > Tap on Hamburger menu > Settings > Tap on Backup & Sync > Now enable the Blue toggle from the Top right corner.


Now to backup Unlimited photos in Google photos app you need to follow same instructions as above but after tapping on
Backup & Sync > Tap on Upload 
Size > and then tap on High Quality.

*You can also go with Original but it will be deducted from your quota.

Second part : Free up Space -

Open Google Photos app > Tap on Hamburger menu > Select Free up Space > After that 
it will open a pop-up menu and then Tap on Free Up.

Now for the Indian viewers who use Jio as a primary sim card, can use Jiocloud and can get up to 50GB of cloud storage for free.

Cache Memory - One of the easiest way to clear space from 
your phone is clearing out the Cache memory. 
Have you ever noticed, That when you use an app for the first time then your phone takes some time to open that app completely And as you start using that app more often then your phone starts
opening that particular app more quickly that is what we call 
as cache memory.


The only main function of the cache memory is to speed up the loading time of an app and provide you the results faster. So there is nothing wrong in deleting the cache memory from your phone.

Now follow the Steps to delete cache memory - 

For deleting the Cache memory of a particular app Go to  
Settings > Apps > Choose an app > Storage >  Tap on Clear cache.

For deleting the cache memory of all apps simultaneously.
Go to Settings > Storage & USB > Tap on Internal storage > now Tap on Cached data and choose Ok.

Trash cleaner - Every smartphone have some inbuilt features
which helps in removing junk and useless files which collects over the time, like I have a Lenovo smartphone which comes with a inbuilt trash cleaner and its amazing. I'll show you screenshots in a bit.

With the Android 8.0(Oreo) you no longer need any external application for removing the trash from your phone, There is a inbuilt option for helping you to clear out the useless files, files like Duplicate photos, Uninstalled residue and apps that you no longer use.


From the above image you can see that i get around 17GB of data just by deleting the Trash.

For using Oreos inbuilt features to free up space -
Go to Settings > Select Storage & USB > Now tap on Free up Space > Then choose item that you want to Delete > Now tap on Free up.

But if in case Your phone doesn't comes with any inbuilt trash cleaner or your phone have the older versions of Android (older than oreo) then you can download files go an app by Google which helps you to manage your storage and clean out the junk from your device.

Thumbnails -
Now Thumbnail is not the common way that you can find in any other article to help you in clearing out space. Now first let me 
tell you what Thumbnail actually is, 

Have you ever noticed that there is a file in your file manager with .thumbnail extension that is what Thumbnail is. 
The only use of the Thumbnail file is to quickly load images of your gallery. Thumbnail files provides you the preview of images that are present in your gallery. And trust me it is one of the instant way to clear couple of GBs from your phone.



Now the sad part about thumbnail is that whenever you open the gallery the system starts creating them again and after few days or months it will fill-up your storage again. But this feature comes to a handy when you have no space in your phone. 

You can delete them in every Two or Three months for avoiding your phone to run out of storage. And it's completely safe to delete.
And you can see from the above image that i got around 15GB 
of Space just after deleting the .thumbnail file.

To delete the .Thumbnail files just follow these simple Steps- 
Go to File manager > Search for .Thumbnail 
file > Now open the .Thumbnail folder > And Delete the Top two files.

Before deleting those files be sure that the files must have the extension of .Thumbnail. 

App Data - Every smartphone have apps and without them, smartphones have no functionality. We all have apps in our smartphones some are useful while others are useless and there are many useless apps which are taking a lot of Storage of your device, App data is a primary part of an app as it contains all of its files, Settings, Accounts and databases which simply means that when you delete the app data of an app then all of its files and activities will be deleted permanently.

For Instance, Suppose you have deleted the app data of the Youtube then you will lose all videos that you have downloaded on the app and you'll also lose the sign-in data. 
Same thing goes for all other applications.

Now in this last segment, we will help you to delete the app data of useless apps without losing any of your important data. So without wasting any more time let's get started.

Step 1 :  Find out the apps that you no longer use, for doing that.
Go to > Settings > Apps > Now choose an app that you don't use.



Step 2 : Now click on that app and then Tap on Storage > Clear data > and then on Ok.

You can further repeat these steps, Based on how many apps you want to get rid of.

Conclusion
So these are some of my Best picks for helping you in saving the Storage, Do comment down which one is your favourite among all and if you have any queries, just ask them below. Thank You.

Smartphones are getting better and better with the time and 
now they are getting closer to the future, I mean just look at the
Oppo Find X. Now Smartphone companies are working hard and producing some great smartphones with some great features.
And when it comes to Today's Smartphones everything is changed The camera, The screen, The
Design, The processors, They all are become more powerful 
than ever before.

But one thing that is been the same from the very first Android smartphone HTC Dream is they all using Lithium-ion 
Batteries in their Smartphones till today. And I think it should 
be changed too because those battery suckers like AMOLED Screen, Heavy apps and games, Bigger screen sizes did 
affect the battery.

For now it's impossible to change the battery type of Smartphones, Maybe we can see it in near future. But one thing that
We can do right off to save our phones Batteries is follow these 7 tips that helped me to use my phone a Hour extra than the
Normal day. 


1.Turn Off Notifications - Whichever device you have, You get tons of Notifications 
throughout the day, Some are useful while others are useless. 
And it directly affects your battery, So if you want to save your battery just turn Off the Notifications of less 
Useful apps.
On Android -
Go to settings >Apps >Choose your desired app >Notifications > Block all.
On iOS -
Settings > Notifications > Choose your app > Disable  "Allow Notifications".

2.Use Dark Wallpapers - Using Dark
Wallpapers in your phone which not only gives your phone 
a classic look but it also helps you in saving your device Battery. 
Smartphones companies are now providing better Screens 
(AMOLED, LCD) on their phones Using colorful Wallpapers 
in your phone can suck your Battery more, Especially when 
your phone have a AMOLED display. 
And if you use Live Wallpapers in your phone then it affects 
even more.

3.Disable Location - Does location affects your battery ??
Yes. A big yes
Some apps always have the permission to track your location, It means your phone have to constantly refresh your device location to provide you the Accurate results,


So it's obvious that it directly affects
Your phones Battery. Now to save your phones battery just
Turn it off. 
To do that you have to manually Disable the location from each app that are accessing it.
On Android - 
Go to settings >Apps >Choose your apps manually > Permissions > Disable "Your location".
On iOS -
Go to Settings > privacy > Location Services > Choose the app > Tap on "Never" or "While 
Using" as per your Need.

4.Turn off Useless Hardware Radios - Now Smartphones companies are offering many features in their phones to give their customers The best possible 
Experience by which they don't have to rely on other things. 

Features like GPS, NFC, Bluetooth, Mobile data and Wi-Fi they 
all are pretty handy and Useful features which makes a phone a Complete package 
But on the other hand they have their Own disadvantage too, No one is using Them all the time. So whenever You are not using them Just turn Them Off.
If you keep them opened they do drain your phones Battery.

5.Playing with Apps - There are many Unnecessary apps that are lying in everyone's phones, 
The only Thing you have to do is just Take your time and Uninstall all those Useless apps because they are
also responsible for reducing your Phones Battery, Some of 
them even use your phones data in the Background.



This is the Another tip, After Uninstalling the
Unnecessary apps now update your all apps or the most useful ones, They may be more bigger in size but they are more optimized to save your battery. 
App developers bring newer versions of apps because they are More better, Less buggy and more
optimized for the battery.

6.Keep an eye on what's draining the battery - Keep an eye on the apps that are draining your phone's battery. There are many apps as well as phone features that reduce 
the battery. For knowing it 
Go to Settings > Power Manager > Power Consumption Details.
Now after that you can see what sucking your battery the most and then you can also take action for that by disabling or Uninstalling
the app.



7.Use Airplane mode - Airplane mode is also a good feature for your phone to save your
Device battery. When to Use it 
If your phone is not getting proper Signal strength then this is the right time to enable it on
 


And if you don't pay attention to it Then it can affect your battery in the long run because when the Signal is poor your phone will work hard to bring it back (which is not good).

B O N U S   T I P
 
7.Use Lite Versions - If you don't have a good processor in 
your phone you might have faced Hang issues in your phone, It's not your processors fault Maybe the apps you are using are 
not that compatible with your phone or the apps are too Heavy 
in size.

Now companies like Facebook, Google, Skype have launched 
the Liter versions of their Apps. So you can also check them out they are way too Smaller in size And they are pretty much the 
same in terms of work like the normal apps and  they are better for your Phones battery.

Blogger is one of the oldest platform for blogging, and many people still use it for their 
blogging journey.
It's a great platform to start with but as you get more and more familiar with it, you'll find some issues in it. And one of the 
issues which I have found in blogger is the Bad Image Quality, When you upload any image in your post, Blogger will automatically reduce the quality of it, 
Which not only looks terrible but also gives a negative impression on your Audience.



And there is no such way to directly fix it. And we all know how much time it takes to make thumbnail for each of the post. 
I have also read some of the other articles on how to improve Image quality in blogger and in most of them they just disable some features of the google plus to Stop your image from ruining by the google. But now, As you know google plus is 
Shutting down so there is no such way to disable those buttons in the future. Now to tackle this issue you have to manually add some code for your image in the HTML editor of your post, But don't 
worry I'm with you in every steps.
So just follow the below steps to get the best quality out of 
your Image.
Step 1. Go to Blogger.com and from here click on new post or just edit the old one, and then upload your desired image that you want to show in your post.

Step 2. And now insert your image wherever you want to show in the post (middle, top, Bottom).
Now do a right click on the image and copy the link address of it.



Step 3. After copying the link, Now remove that image from your post. And now pick the nearest word where you want to set that image, and keep that word in mind or just copy it.



Step 4. Now tap on HTML and do a empty click in the code. From there tap on ctrl + f on your keyboard, and search for that word.

After finding the word paste this Code near of that word, after 
a closing tag.

<img src="Your Image link" width="" height="" />





Now in the place of Your image link paste the link of your image that you have copied before, And in the Width, Height  column you can try the below sizes.

Height = 180 to 300
Width  = 320 to 380

https://www.techhsavy.com/2019/05/how-to-free-up-space-on-your-device.html  

Note, These are just the sizes of the most common images, you can also try out any size you want, It's all up to you. And before 

previewing them don't forget to save them each time you change the size. Make sure to enter them in between the ( " " )
