Making more storage space

As you use Droid DNA by HTC, 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

Free up space in the phone storage by uninstalling apps and deleting files you no longer want to keep. In Settings, tap Storage > Make more space.

Manage photos and videos

  • Set the Camera app to automatically upload to a photo-sharing site or online storage. You can retrieve them from the photo-sharing site or online storage when needed.
    Note: Using data services while uploading photos and videos may be data intensive. You may want to connect to Wi‍-Fi or disable auto upload of camera shots to reduce data consumption.
  • 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 Droid DNA by HTC. 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.
