The modern smartphones are full of technologies, while the problem of the storage is still there. For e.g when you buy a phone, whether it’s a Pixel, iPhone, Android or whatever, of course, you’re dazed between choosing the storage plans like should I get a 16GB or 32GB or maybe more? In addition, they storages aren’t cheap to just get one of greater storage plans. In this case, you’re compelled to take a 16GB or 32GB storage which is frustrating. This is what most of the smartphones are having problem with especially iPhone users that they don’t have the option again to expand the storage, while the Android users have the option to expand with SD card. This problem is getting bigger and bigger day by day because everyday when using phone, you’re totally depending on storage from capturing a photo upto taking notes. It means that if you’ve been using your phone actively for at least 3 to 4 months or more, you are suffering from limited storage or sacrificing old data. Don’t worry, because in this article I’m going to show you the solution on how to turn your 16GB or 32GB phone to unlimited storage by just three apps.
Turn Your 16GB Phone to Unlimited Storage
There are plenty ways and apps to expand your phone storage to unlimited storage and I have tested out them. But among them, I have pick up the one I have used and recommend for you. I see, there isn’t any guide similar to our article and instead, there is an article on how to survive with 16GB storage in your phone, which is lol. So let’s get started.
1. Google Photos – Unlimited Photo & Video Storage
The media in your phone is the largest part of the storage and if I’m not wrong it takes the major part of storage. So what better than Google Photos, which offers unlimited photo & video auto backup service free without any charges. It offers the app for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac which is fantastic. Also, it has sharing options and auto functions which can recognize everyone and arrange items automatically.
Now you can use Google Photos on your Windows and Mac too which are newly added and start backing up your photos & videos to unlimited cloud storage totally free. It takes no space in your phone and stores photos & videos automatically. But also it has paid options if you want to store your photos and videos to their original quality if they which are above 16MP and videos larger than 1920x1080P then you will need to select the paid option but personally I prefer and recommend the first option to use unlimited free option which is great for your smartphone because modern smartphones such as Samsung, iPhone, Pixel doesn’t take picture above 12MP and videos above 4K. All you need to get started is install the app and sign in with your Google Account. To learn more and see the guide how to use and set it up, check out the article below, where there is explained fully with screenshots.
2. Google Drive – Cloud Storage & File Backup for Photos, Docs & More
The Google Drive is another great cloud storage and file backup like Google Photos. Both are Google’s service and are perfect! The difference between the Google Drive and Google Photos is just between their storage. While the Google Photos provides unlimited photo and video storage for 16MP and 1080P videos, but the Google Drive provides 15GB storage free and for more you’ve to upgrade to paid plans. No matter, because we’ve got a perfect suggestion for you, so to get the full backup of photos and videos, do install and use Google Photos to save them completely into unlimited storage and if you had documents, pdfs, voice memos or anything else, just upload them to Google Drive where you have the 15GB full and free option. The Google Drive comes with Android or iOS smartphone already but if you didn’t find it then download it now.
Another great cloud storage is Dropbox, which is really great. I have used Dropbox for almost 2 years and I like to use it beside Google Photos and Google Drive. So how I manage to use them is very easy, like, I use Google Photos to backup my photos & videos and for my documents, notes, music etc I use Google Drive, moreover, for my additional files I use Dropbox and the services below which makes my smartphone storage unlimited. Ok, Dropbox offers a measle of 2GB of free storage and you can raise it upto 16GB by linking your social media accounts and referring friends to join the service. Dropbox Business subscriptions allow users to collaborate on work as well as giving each person unlimited space in a personal Dropbox account. There are also new features and functions for recovery and versioning.
All right! That’s all, hope it would be informative and helpful. If you like the article, don’t forget to share with your friends, they might thank you later. If you have any suggestion, ideas for improvement, feel free to tell us.

The Samsung has developed lots of smartphones and tablets which require a certain system software and that’s called an “Operating System” or OS. Most of the Samsung smartphones and tablets are compatible with Android OS, like Apple devices are running iOS, Nokia is running Windows OS and etc. Now what is a ROM?
It stands for Read-Only Memory, and a ROM is the image of a OS that’s already been installed on your phone or tablet devices that refers to the (Firmware of the device or internal storage of a device which contains the operating system instructions that wouldn’t be needed in a normal operation, as well as it is a read-only memory means you couldn’t make changes to it. A Firmware and ROM are the same, which can be modified but not under normal usage, like to make changes or flash it (install ROM) you need to access it from an advanced device such as PC to install the ROM.
And what do we need to do with ROM? So, here flashing comes, it means to install or modify the firmware of a device and the Stock ROM (Official/Original Firmware) are those which comes by default in devices and they are customized by a specified company, also a ROM is important in a device because without that a device can’t operate. There are two kinds of ROMS:-
* Stock ROMS:- This is the operating system in its default mode without any changes required to run in it. It provides the standard, original user experience of the OS without any functional changes made.
* Custom ROMs:- It is used for custom developers that go beyond the standard and wants to taste their own fruit they grow. In fact, custom ROMS development for the otherwise proprietary and closed-source Windows Mobile platform lead to the formation of the largest independent mobile development community.
