    "This article was an alright resource for those who want to save space on their Android device. Most of the information was fairly commonplace/common sense, at least to me, though I am more knowledgeable than most in this domain, I'd like to think. If you've never owned a device of any kind that you've "optimized" or customized, some of this information might be new or helpful to you, I suppose."

    "This is what I needed. With my three grandchildren I need a lot of room for pictures and videos. This really frees me up a lot. I used to always hate seeing no more storage or having to delete photos or videos I really wanted to keep but had no room. Transferring my photos,videos or files are lightening fast. This solved my storage problems and I now get to keep all of my photos or videos instead of deleting them for more room. This is the best"
