What can cause Phone insufficient memory or memory full?

1. When you browse you open and close pages- each page you open download sub file from the website. That is why you can pick virus from any website: these downloaded files keeps on accumulating browser cache even if you clear or clean history (browser history) there is memory clearer software for Android, but I don't know how effective this can be so this installed and downloaded ‎files can cause memory full. Even if you are not using memory card.but browse then the memory full is inevitable.

2. SMS MMS and Chat: they are other cause of memory full. Is not only android that suffers this memory full even other smaller phones. This may sound funny but it happens, as you ‎continue your SMS chat activities you keep on downloading, uploading and deleting. Time will come when you have used up all the allocated memory for SMS, mms and chat. Thereby causing your phone to indicates memory full or ever to stop power

3. Photos and Videos: this is the main action that cause more bad than good to your phone device. Mostly in MTK and SPD androids you will see this message; the ‎storage memory is almost full delete some items.

Not enough storage or insufficient memory, free up some space to continue, as you see this massage be prepared because you may not only full flash the phone but loose everything in your phone memory unless you backup .

I had this ugly experience with Blackberry Z3 (android version) after warning me of not enough memory free some space, I wake up one day to discover that my phone has reset and I loose everything inside the phone. To avoid this incident when you see the warning backup your phone before unexpected happens.

Whatever happens we must watch videos and take pictures.
