No space on the mobile? So you can recover a few gigs
Smartphones: Tricks to get a little more space on low capacity mobiles
Not everyone can afford the more premium version of the iPhone or Android with gigs and gigs of capacity, and in a society invaded by an almost sickly consumption of multimedia content and social networks, in the twinkling of an eye can be seen with the alert in the mobile that the space has been exhausted. The additional problem, on the other hand, the most modern mobiles do not have support for external cards that allow to expand their storage capacity, so there is no other than 'ordering' indoors. Fortunately, the manufacturers have contemplated this situation and propose the following tricks: 

Deleting photos (or uploading them to the web)

Do we really need to have 20 GB of photos stored on the mobile? Usually we resort to them a few times and the smart thing is to store them on the computer, or better yet, a service in the cloud. The iPhone has in its latest version of iOS with an interesting function for subscribers to the iCloud service: storage optimization. In Settings / Photos and activating "Optimize storage" it is possible that the system itself manages the photos, replacing the originals with versions that occupy very little and downloading them only when we click on them.

Android users have a similar system using the Google Photos app, but in a less automated way : just open the application, Settings / Free Space, so that the app erases from the device memory the images and video that already have previously been synchronized with your server (iPhone users can play this system by downloading the app for iOS).

Farewell to the giant archives

You do not realize it, but a very important part of the space consumed in your device can come from elements as insubstantial as videos or photos that come to us through WhatsApp or the like. The platforms have tools that calibrate the size of apps and attachments so that we can delete them at will: in the iPhone follow the sequence Settings / General / Storage and "Check large files", where we will show hierarchically the ones that occupy most.
In Android the access is similar, although with more options: we open Settings / Device / Storage and from there we can delete the data stored in the cache (surprising to discover the volume that can reach certain apps), or erase the data of certain applications to leave them "of fabric". Another option available is to eliminate the downloads in the same section and do the same with the multimedia files.
The latest version of iOS on the iPhone also has an interesting function of  eliminating the least used apps, does not actually erase them, but leaves them in the cloud with a shortcut and restores them when we click on them. To activate this function simply go to Settings / iTunes and App Store and 'Uninstall unused apps'; the platform allows you to do the same with the songs: in Settings / Music you can activate the box 'Optimize storage', which virtually erases the songs that are less played.
