Anyone shopping for a new Android phone right now is surely looking at camera, screen size, design, and price, but another key feature needs extra attention: storage.
You might think that space concerns have gone the way of the dinosaur, along with 16GB tiers. An examination of your phoneâ€™s settings will likely tell a different story.
I first noticed it on my Pixel 4, when I had to delete a few apps because I didnâ€™t have enough space for Play Store updates. I checked the storage tab: 2.7GB of photos, 1.4GB of music, 6.6GB of games, 25GB for 170 apps, and half a gig for assorted files.
I finally found the problem: 25GB for system files.
