Before we delve into the steps to take to free up some space in your Android phone without using apps, let’s understand what Android is and how it works.

What is Android?

Android is a mobile operating system (OS) developed for mobile devices with a touchscreen, such as smartphone and tablets. Android software is also used in cars, televisions and other machines.

Owned by Google and based on Linux kernel and other open source software, Android is programmed to facilitate the use of a large number of applications in a simple way.

Android OS was originally developed by Android Inc, and was bought by Google in 2005. Google launched it two years later, in 2007, as part of the development of open standards in mobile devices. Its main Android source code is commonly known as the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Today Android  is the most widely used mobile operating system in the world.

How does Android Work?

Every part of the operating system has its own function and process. The functioning of the operating system (OS) depends on the functioning of each of these parts. The operating system signals all the resources of the mobile phone, prioritizing various memories and programs.

So, when an Android user presses the screen to open an app, it redirects the execute permissions of that app to (and not another one) run in the foreground and screen. A mobile operating system can be regarded as a kind of traffic police saddled with the responsibility of redirecting information flows and determining which of them take precedence.
