How can I free up my internal storage in my Android phone?

My internal storage in my Xperia L is 75% full, and it says that almost 2.3 GB is consumed by my photos and videos but it is on the SD card. It makes my phone run slower.

Your phone will install apps to the internal storage, not the SD card -- and if you have a lot of them, your internal storage space will be filled rather quickly. To free up some internal storage, delete the games and other apps that you don't use anymore. Deleting unused apps will also make your phone run faster.

Browser could be disabled. To fix this, press the home button. Press the menu button and select "Settings". Tap on "Apps". Tap on the "ALL" tab. Scroll down and find Browser. If it is there, tap on it. Tap on "Enable" if it is disabled. If you cannot find the application, then it was probably removed and replaced with Chrome (for example, Lenovo did it in the Kitkat Android update).

If your phone is running out of room, it means that all your photos, videos, and apps have taken up your storage space. To free up space, delete the photos, videos, and apps that you don't want anymore. Alternatively, you could move your pictures and videos to your computer to free up space on your phone without losing your files.

Use an app like Google Photos. Within the app, you can set it to sync with the cloud and delete the photos from the memory. They disappear but you can access them anytime within the Google Photos App or online at Google Photos. Then even after you have removed apps and images, put your phone into Recovery and choose Wipe Cache Partition and Clear Dalvik Cache. The phone will reboot in between your selections. This will delete further cache from your internal memory to free up storage.

If you have a virus on your device, hard reset it. You could try using an app like Malwarebytes to remove the virus however, that would not solve your cache problem. A total reset would remove all of it and you could then pick and choose what apps you want to reinstall.
