One of the major problem with the budget Android device is the limited internal storage.Due to this we there is insufficient space to install the many Apps and games.The Android device stores majority of Apps and Games data in the internal storage and thus we need more free memory.If you have more than 16GB of the internal storage device then there won’t be any problem while downloading Apps and games from Play store.But your device has only 4 or 8GB internal storage then the memory space will run out very quickly.Due to the low internal memory when you try to download any Apps or games from Google Play Store you will get the error message saying “There is insufficient space on the device”. Don’t worry this is due to the low internal memory available on your device and I have listed some of the ways to fix and overcome this issue.

First of all when you get this error make sure you free up the internal memory of your phone.Make sure you delete the cached data which would occupy around 600MB of your memory.To clear the cached data Go to Settings>Storage>Cached data and clear it.

Still if you don’t have enough space to install Apps or games from Playstore make sure you have moved all the Apps and Games to the SD card.To move the Apps and games to SD card Go to Settings>Apps>select the required App and move to SD Card.

Though you moved almost every Apps and Games to the memory card, some of the Apps like WhatsApp and Facebook can be installed only in Internal storage.Daily you send and receive hundreds of photos and videos through WhatsApp.So nearly more than GB of internal memory is occupied by WhatsApp.So if you run out of Space then you can move your WhatsApp images and videos to SD card by this method.Also, you can Move Facebook Media to SD Card to free up the internal storage.

By these simple steps, you can fix “There is insufficient space on the device” issue while downloading Apps and games from the Google Play Store.But with 4GB of internal storage you cannot download some big games like Asphalt 8 or NFS Most wanted.With low internal storage, there is also a chance of slowing down your Android device and you can speed up with these methods.For more updates and how to tutorials, Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest.
