Android can be a bit overwhelming at times with all the setting and options available but it’s important to understand that space is finite. We all take pictures, videos, install games and apps but it’s important to understand how to keep a handle on your space especially if you didn’t opt for the top of the line phone with all the extra gigabytes.
Luckily you can redeem that precious memory:
First access the setting option on your phone (these instructions assume you have stock or close to stock Android):
Then locate the storage setting (there’s a search option on most Android phones you can use if you do not see it):

In most cases people tend to use a lot of Photos & videos and Other apps, you click each of the options to get a better look at the details.
One suggestion would be to use the Google Photos app, “Back up unlimited photos and videos for free, up to 16MP and 1080p HD. Access them from any phone, tablet, or computer on photos.google.com – your photos will be safe, secure, and always with you.” this option removes the photos from your phone add seamlessly stores and allow you to access them within the app. The user experience is good and you have the added benefit of having backups of you precious moments.
