• Music, photos, or videos
Instead of removing, you can also move the files to the memory card.
The quality of your memory card may affect the performance of your phone greatly. To get the best

out of your phone, use a fast 4–128GB card by a well-known manufacturer. For more info on memory

cards, check the frequently asked questions.
Use only compatible memory cards approved for use with this device. Incompatible cards may

damage the card and the device and corrupt data stored on the card.
Remove temporary files to free up space

Tap phone > temporary files > delete. To delete temporary files and other data from just your

browser, tap Internet Explorer settings > delete history.

Tip: If your phone doesn’t recognise the file type of a file (such as a zip file), it places the file in

the Other folder. You can check what these are and delete the ones you don’t need using the

Files app.
