As applications and games are updated to support 1080p graphics (and beyond), file sizes have increased exponentially over the last year, making inbuilt storage worth its weight in gold. Just two years ago, 2GB and 4GB was not uncommon for built-in storage. Now the standard – or minimum, rather – is 16GB, yet that still is not enough for every scenario. It forces users to have to choose between what applications, games, music, pictures and videos they store on their device.
What’s worse is microSD card support, or expandable storage, is becoming a rarity for some OEMs. Until 32GB becomes the accepted minimum, we will continue to struggle with limited on-board storage. Using the tips in this video, however, can help stave those “low storage” warnings, at least temporarily.
