Tips Remove unnecessary files on a Nokia Lumia

Many electronic devices require periodic maintenance to remove files that are generated in the system. This problem is particularly affect computers but now smartphones are like small computers and are not immune to this problem. Continued use causes the appearance of a large number of unnecessary files that are stored in the memory of your smartphone and obviously take up space. When a device, be it a computer or a smartphone, run out of space, we run the risk that other problems but mostly we notice that the system is very slow and any normal task costs much more. Therefore it is very important to remove all the data we do not need and keep the memory with enough free space to make the system work smoothly. The downside of these unnecessary files, or “Junk Data”, as they are known in the jargon of the computer world, is that we can not see them in the memory of our phones and deleting them is not always easy. The Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8 can perform this action easily using the free application Shrink Storage.

How to recover deleted photos and videos from Nokia lumia

A curious detail about the unnecessary private archives of the Nokia Lumia is that can not be erased unless the memory is completely full.

What makes Shrink Storage is pretending that the memory has been filled out completely in order to carry out the cleaning process in the terminal.

As mentioned, the application is free and available for all Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8. After installing you have to follow the steps that check to clear the data. First you have to press Fill Phone Storage to simulate the memory is full, and then delete the excess power, so to speak. When you finish filling a confirmation message appears, until then we must wait for it to complete. Then restart the phone for the process to work properly, turn off the phone and on. Again launch the application and then click on Clean Phone Storage, at this point it begin to eliminate unnecessary information, the process can take several minutes so be patient and do not touch anything until the end.

When finished you see a notice where it appears the approximate amount of data removed in the process, it may happen that delete a large amount (e.g. Gb) or it may be that there is no excess data. Developer recommended to repeat the process several times as it is possible that the first does not detect all unnecessary information so we made sure that we removed all and there is nothing that can interfere with the proper functioning of our Nokia Lumia.

The Nokia tries his luck with a new generation of mobile Lumia which absorb a significant part of the market, while Samsung seeks to strengthen a position of emergency in the segment of smartphones. Both are leading manufacturers in the industry, so it is very important to put their proposals face to face star to the midrange and entry, despite being of different ecosystems Windows Phone 8, the first, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the second.

Both phones have clear the importance of love at first sight, but each offers something different. The Nokia Lumia 620 bet on a very colorful

Design and Display

Both phones have clear the importance of love at first sight, but each offers something different. The Nokia Lumia 620 bet on a very colorful, with colored faceplates and look especially prescribed for juvenile court users. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini plays to replicate the most famous design of the phones from this manufacturer, but on a small scale.

As for the screens of both the mobile Nokia offers a slightly smaller panel. In this sense, you find a screen 3.8 inches compared to four inches of Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, however, it does match your competition on one point: the resolution. In this sense, the fact develops a quality of 800 x 480 pixels.


Both phones are pretty even at this point, presenting profiles similar connections. For starters, the two lead sensor Wi-Fi standards compliant 802.11 a / b / g / n, and access to 3G mobile data networks. No lack both a proximity chip communication NFC and Bluetooth port and microUSB. They also have support for Wi-Fi Direct, as well as the standard DLNA.

Multimedia and Camera

The differences are subtle, so that depending on the preferences of the user, are marked in a more or less pronounced distances. For starters,

the Nokia Lumia 620 recognizes most audio and video formats, but allowed more advanced options, such as DivX or MKV, and yes that includes Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Instead, the Nokia phone brings unique applications to listen to millions of free songs through the system via streaming, as Nokia Music or Nokia Mix.

Regarding the cameras, again similarities. The two are a pair of cameras, the main one of which develops a maximum resolution of five megapixels in photo mode and recording 720p HD quality video. Do not miss the LED flash is already a classic. The secondary camera is, in both cases, a quality unit with VGA.

Processor and memory

The presence of a dual core chip which develops a frequency of one GHz mark power reaching these two devices, which in the case of memory that are distanced itself.

And is that the Nokia Lumia 620 carries, for starters, a RAM of 512 MB, compared to twice that equips the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Something similar happens with the internal storage. The Finnish phone is limited to eight GB of onboard capacity, compared to the versions of eight and 16 GB of the device in South Korea. However, the former allows the installation of microSD cards up to 64 GB, compared with the second 32 GB maximum.

Operating Systems

And at this point, the polarization is quite evident.

The Nokia Lumia 620 works with the most modern and comprehensive platform of Microsoft Windows Phone 8, a system that already has passed the barrier of 120,000 apps available from its online storefront. Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini run on Android which is much heavier in apps. Fundamental differences in this regard are marked by the integration of each ecosystem with very specific functions.

Thus, the Lumia 620 will be specially prescribed for those who want to have at your fingertips the Office suite from day-from the second quarter of 2013 will be on Android – and the entertainment platform Xbox. The system takes the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, meanwhile, takes charm with all online options Google. The usability of both environment also can be decisive in deciding where one, that of Microsoft, commitment to simplicity and the other, that of Google, essentially proposes a wide range of customization-within the constraints linked to layer TouchWiz.

While mobile Nokia takes less amperage battery – 1300 mAh, get more autonomy in use – 9.9 hours, compared to 1,500 milliamps unit Samsung terminal, getting a conversation lasting nearly eight hours. However, at rest it expands more autonomy, reaching 360 hours, compared to the previous 330 hours.


As you have found, in the technical aspects before two devices are very similar. The device Samsung is a bit larger and offers more internal memory in one version. However, the Nokia develops more autonomy, and to customize the look of the terminal with interchangeable covers. The price is an argument between the two, but does it really make a difference is notable in this section?

Nokia Lumia 620 will be priced at 290 euros, 320 euros compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Just about 30 euros, depending on the type of user, a line can be very, very thin.
