Storage

To check how much memory you have available, tap Settings > Storage.

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.

Remove downloaded apps

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

Disable an app

You can’t delete some apps that were pre-installed on your device. But you can disable them and they will be hidden from the list of apps on your device. If you disable an app, you can add it back to your device.

  1. Tap Settings > Apps & notifications.
  2. Tap App info.
  3. Tap the app name.
  4. Tap DISABLE. You may not be able to disable all apps.

If an installed app depends on a removed app, the installed app may stop working. For details, see the user documentation of the installed app.

Add back a disabled app

You can add a disabled app back to the list of apps.

  1. Tap Settings > Apps & notifications.
  2. Tap App info.
  3. Tap All apps > Disabled apps.
  4. Tap the app name.
  5. Tap ENABLE.

Copy content between your phone and computer

You can copy photos, videos, and other content created by you between your phone and computer to show or store them.

  1. Connect your phone to a compatible computer with a compatible USB cable.
  2. On your computer, open a file manager, and browse to your phone.
  3. Drag and drop items from your phone to the computer, or from your computer to the phone.

Make sure you put the files in the right folders on your phone, or you may not be able to see them.
