  • Try using a microSD card: If your device has a slot for external storage, investing in a microSD card will be a good move. When you get this card, you can transfer some of your media and apps to the external storage, freeing up more ROM and ensuring that you don’t get interrupted with “insufficient storage space” messages when working on your phone.

When this cache becomes filled, it can eventually make your device slower or make it display “insufficient storage space” messages. If this has ever happened to your TECNO smartphone, you can take the following steps to clear your cache:
  1. Open Settings.
  2. Go to apps, click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner of your device.
  3. Click on sort by size, this should help you filter your apps and show you the apps that take up the most space.
  4. Click on the app you want to work on and clear its cache.


  • Reset the Google Play Store: This should help you resolve issues pertaining to “insufficient storage space” messages. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Settings > Apps > Google Play Store, then click on the three dots in the top right-hand corner of your smartphone.
