If you find yourself struggling to free up memory and storage space on your Android phone and find that you are often running into lagging issues, it’s time to consider an app purge to do away with the ones you don’t use on a regular basis. Keep in mind that you can always reinstall apps if you ever need them again. Definitely remove apps you don’t remember installing yourself by long-pressing on the app icon and tapping “Uninstall” or “Remove” on the menu that pops up. Depending on what model of Android phone you have, you may need to hit an extra button to get to the page that has the uninstall option.
You can also go back to the Apps list page through your Android phone’s settings, go through each app, and remove the ones you don’t recognize by tapping on the app and hitting “Uninstall” on the app’s info page — if those apps aren’t bloatware, then it’s at least a quick and easy way to free up some storage. Additionally, you can go through apps via the Google Play Store, arrange installed apps according to “least used,” and delete off the top of the list.
