20 problems all Android users have been through

We have to come face to face with our reality and agree that no phone is perfect. Everything has a fault in one or another way be it hardware or software. In today's list, we have jotted some of the scenarios that Android users have been through.

Insufficient space

Everyone has been through this problem of not having enough space when we want to install an app or download a song. While most of the phones previously came up with 16GB if inbuilt memory, out which user will get a generous 5GB storage for data storage. However, SD cards are our savior in this case.

Google Play store crashing

In most of the Desi devices, we have witnessed this peculiar problem of Play Store crashing. When we try to open the Google Play Store, it will just showcase a message saying " Google Play Store isn't responding". This might happen due to some corrupt cache

Apps not installing

Sometimes, when we tap on install apps, it won't progress ahead further. This might happen due to less storage, corrupted cache and much more.

Free up memory on Android device

Not wiping cache, Installing too much of apps, or having a phone full of data's can slow down your phone and the performance. At that time, we are forced to free up some memory in our phone either by running some tools or deleting some data.

System UI not working

There might be an instance, where you are opening an app and all of a sudden your system UI crashes. You can fix this by restarting the device or wiping out the Cache.


Sometimes, the files you downloaded doesn't work. This happens often when you don't have the software or app that helps the file to process. For example, most of the PDF file won't run without PDF app or software.

Can't find my downloaded file

Generally, Android stores all the file that has been downloaded in a place called Downloads. To locate the Download directory, first install a file manager, like ES File Explorer and get to Downloads in the directory.

Can’t Play a Downloaded Video

Sometimes, without installing a specific app, we end up cursing the phone or the video. In fact, some of the video doesn't work with the proprietary video player. To solve this, you can download VLC or other video players.

Installed Corrupted file

We often did it in the past and doing it now as well. Installing some unknown file and regretting later. In order to prevent all this, install Virus scanner in your mobile.

Internet not working

In this case, remove your battery and check it. If not hold down the power button for fifteen seconds. If that fails, give the mobile to service centers
