If your phone’s not running on the software that mention’s above, then don’t worry follow these steps. Now i showing you some useful tips to get rid of this problem.

  • First way to get started if possible then “Backup” your data. Sync the account data to google account. Move the other files data to memory card or on your computer. Then “Reset” the phone to factory settings.
  • The best way to increase internal memory is free up some space by deleting or moving your unwanted data. Because lots of people have unwanted data on there phone internal memory and it still there even it’s never required. Check all media, photos, documents and other files data folders on main memory or internal memory. Delete or move to external memory card.
  • Go to “Settings“. Look for “Application Manager” then tap to select it. Here you can examine all apps then remove/uninstall unwanted apps to free up some space.
  • On “Application Manager” you can move the applications to SD Memory Card. Check all the apps settings and move the apps if the “Move” option is available.
  • Now tap the camera icon and open your mobile phone’s camera app. Then tap on “Gear” icon or open “Settings” Menu. Now select “Storage” location to External Memory or Memory Card.
  • Install a free app from google play store to delete junk and temporary files that are stored on your phone’s time to time. For example “Clean Master” App.



Let’s start now to get it. The first solution that i told you is permanent and mostly used solution for that problem. To increase the internal space you need to swap the internal partition to external partition. For this task you need to buy a New Memory card or used old if you already have it. If you are going to buy new memory card then make sure how much size of external memory card is supported. Maybe you get a large space of memory card you insert it into your phone, then unsupported memory card message will be shown. So it’s better to make sure before getting a memory card. I recommend 32GB or 64GB memory card are good for this task. Almost any android phones supported 32GB and 64GB external memory.

Phone’s Memory Swapping is a difficult method actually you must have some knowledge to do this job. If you are not familiar with android phone’s technology then take your time to deep search on internet. There are lot of tutorials and videos available to do this task. I will also upload a complete guide to do this job. Actually it’s not hard but take your attentions a lot.
