Most people have nearly everything they need on their smartphones. From email to games, work stuff and family stuff, it's tough to imagine being without your mobile. But if you've got tons of stuff, or if you're running less than a flagship model, then you might find that you're running out of space. That dreaded “low storage” message means that you need to go through your device and delete things that are important to you. But what if we told you that you might not need to get rid of anything or start backing up files elsewhere? Replace a few of those big storage apps with a suitable low storage alternative, and you might find that you have all the space you need.

Nearly everyone these days has a smartphone, and, if we’re honest, most phones look pretty much the same. We’re all carrying around little black rectangles in our pockets, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a phone that’s a little more individual. Android is an excellent choice for an operating system because it’s so customisable, and one of the best ways to customise how your Android looks is to download a launcher.

For a long time, storage was one of the most expensive parts of a new mobile phone. Sure, buying a small 4GB or 8 GB device was pretty cheap. More than that though, and you'd be paying a fair chunk of change. However, times are changing, and with more people using cloud storage, and even internal storage becoming cheaper, plus the advent of SD cards, mobile storage isn't quite the problem that it used to be. However, with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, there's a new storage choice on the market: adoptable storage. What is it? How does it work? Do you want to use it? That's what we're here to find out!
Let's be honest here, the vast majority of us probably use our phones far more for texting, messaging, and web surfing than we do for actually making phone calls. But phone calls aren't entirely out of fashion. The nice thing about a smartphone though, is that you generally know exactly who's calling you. Unless, of course, you don't have that number stored in your contacts list. Today, we're taking a quick look at how you can reverse look up a phone number, and it's dead easy, so don't panic.
