So far this week in part 1 and part 2 of a 3-part series on clearing space on your Android phone, we’ve looked at eight ways you can make more room on your phone. Today we’ve got three more handy tips.

Delete duplicate files

Just like in the old days with PCs, there might be a lot of duplicate files on your smartphone which cannot be easily located. The default file browser does not provide much functionality to locate such duplicate files either.

Apps like ES Explorer can help you find such duplicate files by categorizing them. Once you get all the duplicate files you can easily delete them.

Clear the app cache

You can free up a lot of space by clearing app caches time to time. To do this go to Settings> Storage > Apps. Tap on an app and click on “Clear cache” option.

Or you can also choose to clear the cache for every app on the phone.

Go to Settings and find Storage. On my phone it’s under the More tab, but it could vary depending on your phone.

Then I want you to scroll down to Storage and tap on it. Now it may take a few seconds for the information to load.

Go to Cached data. As you can see, there’s more than 1 GB taken up on my phone, but the first time I did this I cleared 6 GB.

Tap Cached data and you’ll see the option to Clear all cached data. Choose OK.

It should only take a few seconds to clear out the data and make room on your phone.

Use  junk remover apps

You can free up a lot of space by installing an app like CCleaner, Clean Master, All In One Toolbox (Cleaner), DU Speed Booster & Cleaner.

These apps will partially automate some of the individual cleanup tasks and make thing slike clearing the cache a breeze.

Follow these tips and you’ll notice the difference immediately.
