Internal storage space on smartphones and tablets is of limited capacity. In mid-range Android devices you will only find 4GB – 8GB of internal storage space. This limited amount of capacity has to be used efficiently so that your device’s performance will remain smooth. One should always make sure to remove / uninstall unwanted applications that are eating up storage space. Or they could be moved from internal storage to external microSD storage card. Applications installed on smartphones generate different types of database and cache files, even after app un-installation traces of data are left on the device which do consume storage space in the long run.
