    Search for a film which is bigger than the space left on your phone. For example if the available space is 4GB, choose a movie whose file size is greater than 4GB.

    Then click "Rent" at the top of the page. The user will not be charged as the phone does not have enough space to download it and a message will apper saying "you don't have enough available storage".

    After clicking "OK", head back to settings and check your available storage again. A significant increase in the available storage space should be visible.

    You can repeat the entire process a few times.

    "As of now, it's unclear on how the trick works, but it probably has got to do with some cache and other storage from apps getting cleaned up," the report said.
