Android Central Question

Hi good people: Actually, i have two different issues I will want addressed. Firstly, I have about 85 apps on my Android phone, and I cannot add any new apps to it. Please how can I create space to add new apps. I've used the anti cashe cleaner, and I am made to understand that there are no junk files. Please what can I do. Secondly, I am afraid my phone can get damaged sooner, because it gets just too hot for my liking. Please how can I prevent the phone from getting too hot. I can I cool down the phone from time to time. I once used an app called: Cooler Master, but it was causing problems for other apps, and I had to remove it. I use a Samsun Galaxy grand prime phone, SM532 with Android 6.0 Marshmellow. Hope to get some help, and thanking you all in advance.

To create space for more apps, you need to remove files from the internal storage:
pictures, videos, music, documents, other apps.

If your phone accepts an SD card, you can easily transfer the pictures, videos, music, and documents to the SD card.

How much capacity does your phone have in its internal storage?


What app(s) are you running when the phone gets hot?

Welcome to Android Central! That phone presumably only has 8 GB of Internal Storage, which means you probably only have about 3-4 GB available for your own use. That can get filled up very quickly, so you probably don't have many other options besides uninstalling apps you don't need or use. If the phone supports the Move to SD feature for apps, you can reclaim a little internal storage, but usually not much (since the feature only moves a portion of the app to SD). Go to Settings>Apps, select an app, and see if there is a Move to SD button. If you don't see the button for any app, then the phone doesn't support the feature.
