    Now, we are in storage sense.
    This gives us an idea and gives us knowledge about what is stored on our phone and on the SD card. You can see under the word phone the number of gigabytes used and just to the right of that, how many gigabytes are free.

    So if we want to store mainly apps on the phone and store things such as music or photos, we can store them on the SD card because there's more room.

    If we click on phone, then we can see what is taking up all the room.
