If you get a lot of photos and videos through WhatsApp these will be stored on your phone and will take up a lot of space.

You can turn that storage of in WhatsApp I think...

As stated above 16gb is feck all nowadays but there is a way to claw back a couple of gb regularly.. If you know the passwords to your social media accounts simply delete the apps and reinstall this will remove all the crap that's built up in the app, Everytime you update it adds to the size of the app

In iOS I think you have to delete and reinstall but in Android you can go into settings>storage and go down though each app. I have plenty of free space anyway but gained 3gb there by clearing storage and cache from Facebook, Snapchat and spotify. Remember be sure you know passwords before you clear storage, cache can be removed anyway.

You don't even need to do that, just go into the individual apps in settings and clear their caches.

Some apps seem to storage intensive, some cache intensive. No harm doing both.

How's Root going for u?

Looks like my oneplus3 has bit the dust.
Any recommendations ?
Was looking at the Xiaomi Mi 8.
Any one any experience of Xiaomiís and getting one ?

If you like OnePlus the new ones are incredible and the 6T will be coming shortly. They've got pricier though.

A budget option is the new Pocophone they is being touted as a OnePlus challenger.

The Motorola G series are always good budget phones too.

I had a OnePlus 2 and upgraded to the 5T earlier in the year. Brilliant phone

Not all apps use the SD card, so it might help that much.

A  good cleaning app will identify where the space is being used, if you have space to install it!!
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

If you use the Samsung pass app to transfer data from old phone you may be clogging up new phone with photos, files, apps etc.

Iíve found that it was remaining months x monthly cost less the VAT. That was a few years ago so Iím not sure if itís still the way they do it. Iíd say itíll be costly unless your monthly fee is low.

Yip that what I was quoted from 3 as well. Cant wait to get away from 3, live in south Belfast and signal is pathetic. Thinking of a Huawei as the camera seems to be one of the best around and 128gb to boot
