However, most of us are still using budget devices, and with the applications' size getting bigger day by day, there will be times when we have a storage shortage problem, which requires you to clear some space.

Delete those 'already backed up' photos

Managing through your entire library of images might be a chore, but no worries, if you've already backed up your images and videos to the cloud and not planned of showing them soon - then you'll only have to press a button in the Google Photo app - as this app can clean all the 'already backed up' images from your phone.

Of course, there are a lot of cleaner apps out there for Android, but I think the safest option for most users is 'Files by Google' - as this app came from Google themselves. This app is able to detect duplicate files in your system, remove Downloads folders in just one press of the button, as well as recommend to you which app should you uninstall depends on your usage.

And with this article, we hope that you can forever say goodbye to the "Storage Full" message when using your phone.
