Here's how to free up space on your Android smartphone

Android smartphones can often become slower as they get older, and a big factor affecting this slowdown is the accumulation of unnecessary files.

Smartphones have a limited amount of internal storage, and while high-end devices now boast up to 512GB, the camera and display hardware of these handsets is also improving.

Step 2: Remove Google and its bloatware. Oh wait, you can't.

Lol, high end devices.....even low end devices has at least 32GB, these days. If not, you're asking the wrong friends for shopping advice. This article is a few years, too late.....Gingerbread is that way

32GB? So 28 due to OS, then bloatware so maybe 22 then just the basic apps one needs so 16 or less left which you'll fill up in another 5min.
