In this guide, we'll go over some ways you can clear up the junk on your Fire tablet. Read More

Fans of third-party cloud storage providers will be excited when Chrome OS 75 finally reaches the Stable Channel.

It's kind of astonishing to see how quickly storage prices fall. PNY introduced its Elite 512GB microSD card at $349.99 in June of last year, and today the very same card is available for just $80.99 on Amazon. If you need a bit more speed, the 512GB Pro Elite is $89.99, and other PNY storage products are discounted as well. Read More
I've been a huge Dropbox fan since 2009 and never even considered switching to another solution ever since. Back then, I was using a Linux netbook at school and needed to sync my files and notes back to my "actual" computer, and Dropbox was one of the very few cross-platform solutions available back then. Today, I still need to access my files across devices, but even though there are many more options on the market, I really enjoy Dropbox's advanced features, especially because they keep getting better. Indeed, the company has just improved its service by introducing three new features to make it even safer and more convenient to use. Read More
Samsung's delayed Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy S10 5G were set to be the first phones to ship with UFS 3.0 storage, but OnePlus may end up beating them to the punch — at least, in most markets. CEO Pete Lau tweeted out confirmation earlier today that the company's upcoming 7 series of phones will feature super-fast UFS 3.0 storage. Read More
It turns out that the Galaxy Fold is a phone of firsts. It's Samsung's first foldable device, it's the first mass-market foldable phone, and it also seems to be the first device to use the company's ultra-fast eUFS 3.0 storage — with read speeds roughly two times faster than the OnePlus 6T's.

Privacy has been one of the main themes with Android Q so far. Permissions can be blocked to background apps, clipboard managers have been killed off, and runtime permissions are changing for old apps. It seems Google is just getting started, as Android Q Beta 2 comes with major changes to how apps can access local files. Read More
There are plenty of reasons to pick up a microSD card, should your phone support one. It can be a lot cheaper to get a phone with less storage and plan to add more. Media maniacs and data hoarders can also make use of the super cheap extra space. But if you think SanDisk's new A1 and A2-rated microSD cards are going to provide anywhere near the experience of your phone's built-in storage, think again. Read More
With increasing capabilities such as 4K video recording, better processing power, and faster download speeds, smartphones are beginning to require more storage space. A few years ago, it was customary for a phone's base version to offer 8GB of internal memory. This figure has evolved over the years, with last year's Galaxy S9 offering a minimum of 64GB, and powerhouses such as the Note 9 having up to 512GB of internal space.
Samsung just revealed it's doubling this number, by announcing the mass production of a 1TB embedded Universal Flash Storage chip. The news comes in less than a month before the Korean manufacturer unveils its new flagship handsets, strongly suggesting a variant of the Galaxy S10 will feature it, as previous rumors had hinted at.
