If performing any of the steps in the article, or in a neighbouring article offer no help (the recommended steps are connecting the smartphone to a computer with a USB and moving the files first), then you will need to perform a hard-reset so that the smartphone is cleaned up (click here). Occasional hard-reset may be essential for Android smartphones to clean up space that is not cleaned up after some programs are removed.
