Two of the aspects that most mobile users take the most care of (or should we care more) are: battery health and storage capacity. A cell phone is not much use to us if it does not stay on for as long as we need it, and allowing the device’s storage to fill up usually impair your performance.

Of course, it is more difficult to fill the storage of a mobile phone with a capacity of 512GB or 1TB. But devices with that capacity They are usually much more expensive, so many of us end up with a mobile phone with 128 GB or, if we’re lucky, 256 GB of storage. And what’s even worse, that phone probably does not have support for expanding its storage using microSD cards.

Therefore, in order to take care of the storage and performance of my mobile, I usually use some applications that allow me better understand the status and operation of the device and offer some solutions to free up storage and even save battery.

The idea of ​​many of these applications is that the user can know the status of the mobile hardware to be able to take the necessary actions For example, avoid using your phone for gaming or resource-intensive tasks when the temperature is too high, or delete apps and large files when storage is about to run out.

These are the apps we recommend:

It also includes a widget to always have this information at hand on the home screen, and allows you to export data reports as PDF files.
