Storage

Use the Storage menu to check how much memory you have available.

Check available memory on your phone

If the phone memory is getting full, first check for and remove things you no longer need:

  • Text, multimedia, and mail messages
  • Contact entries and details
  • Apps
  • Music, photos, or videos

Instead of removing, you can also move the files to the memory card.

The quality of your memory card may affect the performance of your phone greatly. To get the best out of your phone, use a fast 4–128GB card by a well-known manufacturer.

Use only compatible memory cards approved for use with this device. Incompatible cards may damage the card and the device and corrupt data stored on the card.

To check how much memory you have available and how it's being used, tap Settings > Storage.

Move apps to a memory card

You can expand your phone’s memory with a memory card.1

  1. Tap Settings > Apps.
  2. Tap the app name.
  3. Tap Storage under Storage used, tap Change > Select the storage for the app.

You can later move the apps back to your phone from the memory card.

The type of the memory card may affect how long it takes to move large files to the card.

Remove downloaded apps

Tap Play Store > menu > My apps & games, choose an app you want to remove, and tap UNINSTALL.
