How To Fix Low Internal Memory Problem On Android Phones

Android low memory problem

If you are reading this post right now, I want you to know I understand exactly what you are going through. I once suffered the low internal memory problem on my phone, it is very annoying.

It took me a while – after downloading all the memory booster apps I came across, which of course didn’t work – before I finally got this perfect solution to the low internal memory problem on my android phone.


There are junks residing on a part of your phone which cannot be accessed by normal file managers. This junks are stored up when app crashes occurs on your phone, when you uninstall apps (some leave junks behind) and some other reasons. It is this junks that accumulate over time and deprive you use of your internal memory.
