Making more storage space

Making more storage space

As you use HTC One XL, you'll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to increase storage space.

Run the storage wizard

Easily free up space in the phone storage by cleaning the application cache, uninstalling apps, and changing settings so that only the most recent data is kept. In Settings, tap Storage > Make more space.

Store files in Dropbox

Photos, email attachments, and other documents can be stored in Dropbox and accessed anywhere you are. You can set the Camera app to automatically upload photos to Dropbox.

Note: Dropbox is a third-party app and is not provided by or associated with HTC Corporation.

Manage photos and videos

  • Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. When you reach the storage limit, just delete all your photos. You can retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
  • After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot and discard the rest.
  • After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. You can delete original files or move them to online storage or to your computer.
  • If you are only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. High-resolution video takes up more space. In Camera settings, tap Video Quality to change the resolution.

Back up apps data

Keep only the most recent data from apps on HTC One XL. You can back up calendars, contacts, and bookmarks or export text messages, and personal dictionaries.

Disable some apps

Apps, even if not used often, may be running in the background and downloading data into the phone storage. If the app cannot be removed, you can disable it. In Settings, tap Apps and then swipe to All. Select the app you want to disable, and then tap Disable.
