It doesn't matter if your Android phone has expandable storage via a microSD card -- you fill up whatever space you're given, whether it's 32GB or 200GB. Here are some easy ways to free up storage on your Android device -- both the internal storage and microSD.

1. Clear the cache

Many Android apps use stored -- or cached -- data to give you a better user experience. Cached data can save a little time (and mobile data), but the files stored in app caches are for convenience and are not strictly necessary. If you need to clear up space on your phone quickly, the app cache is the first place you should look.

To clear cached data from a single app, go to Settings > Applications > Application Manager and tap on the app you want to modify. In the app's Application info menu, tap Storage and then tap Clear Cache to clear the app's cache.

2. Delete your downloads

Your Android phone has a downloads folder where everything you download -- photos, videos, documents and other files -- is stored. Chances are most of the files in your downloads folder are not files you're particularly attached to. (For some reason my downloads folder is full of pictures of Pizza Hut's Ultimate Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookies.) So you should be able to free up some storage space by deleting these unnecessary files.

You'll find your downloads folder -- which might be called My Files -- in your app drawer. Tap and hold a file to select it, then tap the trash can icon, the remove button or the delete button to get rid of it.

3. Take advantage of Google Photos

Guess what? Google Photos lets you back up an unlimited number of photos. In other words, you can back up every single photo you take with your Android phone directly to Google Photos, and it will not count against your Google Drive space. Once your photos are backed up, you can delete them from your device to free up space.
