It depends on how much storage your device actually has, sometimes uninstalling a few apps or clearing cache, might not be enough. You can check it by going to settings and clicking on storage. Some apps might require more storage than others. Also to make more space on your device, you can move your content to a cloud storage or PC. In order to give you more specific advise, please inform us what device you are using.
