I've got Samsung Galaxy J5 with Marshmallow 6.0.1 and in this phone I've got internal memory of 8 gb and a memory card of 8gb. I've stored every little picture and audio in external memory and many apps too but the system memory takes up 3.28gb and the apps take 3.83gb and there's no space left after that. I don't know what to do I don't even have many apps and games in this phone. Please help me on how to save up internal memory space without having to move everything to external memory?!!

Adopt SD card so it becames like internal storage, but backup data from SD first. Also you can disable (uninstall updates) for google apps you don't need.


This problem is faced by many of users cause internal memory is the by default memory of every smartphone. Your system apps and other third party apps can consume your internal memory you can fix it by using these methods. use external memory as default memory so it can install all app data externally.
