When you install any android app on your smartphone then it gets installed in your internal memory by default. It may not be a problem for users having android smartphone with large internal storage but not all Android Smartphones come with large amount of internal memory. Internal memory plays an important part in smooth and proper functioning of your android device whether smartphone or tablet. This is because the Android OS and all other important system applications & apps require some internal memory for their working. If you ever run out of internal memory in your phone then you will experience various problems mentioned below.

Here are the various symptoms and problems that you can face if your phone has low internal memory.
Slow Performance – Your android smartphone will be very sluggish if you have very low internal memory or your internal memory runs out of space.
