How To Fix Low Memory On Android


Low Memory
Low Memory – Avoid Task Killers 

Low system memory – RAM and low internal memory – storage, are the two issues which need to be checked while running an Android device to avoid any interruption in its function.

 Most of the Android devices have 1 GB of RAM or 512 MB and if one is running some intensive app or a number of apps, the RAM may tend to struggle under the pressure and one of the foremost rule of RAM Club is not to use task killers which tend to stop processes long enough for a cool bar graph or pie chart to indicate an impressive decrease in the usage of the RAM.

These processes then tend to start up only after a few moments and put you back from where you started. The most essential step to be taken in order to keep a tab on how much RAM the apps uses is toeliminate the trouble issuing ones which may not be of much importance to the user.

Play Store have a good number of apps and one can find one with the resource management and functionality of one’s choice. Since Android has a built in RAM monitor in Developer Option under the Process Stats, users can see the run time as well as the RAM usage.

Variety of Start -Up Task

If the Developer Option has been enabled, users could go to Settings>About Phone and tap on Build Number till Developer option appears.

One can also use a variety of start-up task managers such as Advance Task Manager in order to limit which apps and process can run on start-up.

Large number of pictures or videos, too many games and plenty of music could impose on the internal storage which one may not be aware of.

Based on the version of Android as well as the manufacturer, it is important to comprehend how Android divides internal storage so that one has the understanding of how much space is available.

Micro SD Card/Link2SD

A Smartphone with a 32 GB of storage onlyhas access to around three quarters of it and at times much less and the best thing to do when one gets a warning of low internal storage is to delete some of the unrequired contents by clearing off the temporary and cached data which would be of great advantage.
Shifting the music and photos to the cloud or using a music streaming service instead of the local storage could be helpful.

The other alternative is to slip in a micro SD card in the phone slot and then move the contents over to the external SD card.

This can be done in Settings>Apps> look for `move to SD card’ in each app where music, pictures and other files can be moved though system files and apps cannot be moved.

Besides this, an app like Link2SD also is helpful in moving everything to the SD card though these apps may need to have root access, where root privilege provides more freedom to move apps at will; delete bloatware preloaded on the device and much more.
