Unnecessary App Uninstallment
It is recommended for you to remove any apps that you will most likely not use anytime soon. Every now and then take a look at the games that you do not play anymore since those take up the most space. Take a look at the Settings, then go to the Apps so you can see which apps are taking up the most space in order of most to least. Remove the apps that you are not using a lot. You can also download the apps back for free if you decide to show interest in them later on.
Media files can be copied to your computer
Media files such as photos, music, and videos can be use up lots of storage. You can remove videos and photos from storage if you are running low on some space. However, it is recommended for you to copy your videos and photo to your computer from Camera folders and DCIM so you do not lose them forever.
You will be able to complete this by connecting the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus to the computer using a USB cable. You can copy the DCIM and Camera folder when you find them under removable drive on your computer. You can then remove all the files from the smartphone once all of the files have been copied onto your computer.
You must first have the Android File Transfer app installed first if you are on a Mac.
Programs on Mac, Linux, and Windows can usually make the process quicker for you when you are connected and new media files are copied. For example, Dropbox does a great job at doing this also such as Windows Photo Viewer, Adobe Lightroom, and iPhoto.
Copy to the cloud storage provider from media files
A cloud storage service such as Google Photos, Microsoft OneDrive, or Dropbox can be used in order to hold onto certain media. You can download the app that you want on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus and just take a look at the steps to turn on camera uploads automatically. You can then delete the videos and photos on your device once the videos and photos have been sent correctly.
Use of app for music streaming
You can use an app to stream music if you are using a lot of space for music. You can use Spotify since it is a very popular but you can use many others of its competitors.
You can also use free services such as Google Music. This will allow you to upload music to online servers from a PC and then be able to listen to it whenever you want. You can listen music on your phone but it does take up more data. Another option is to also choose specific songs, playlists, or albums to keep on your phone. Once done, music can be deleted to gain space for other things after the provider for streaming music has been set up.
Clear your folder for downloads
You can also free up some space by deleting some items that you have in the Download folder. The folder for downloads may be packed with images, PDFs, app APKs and other things. You can go to the Download app that is already built in to look for what files you want to get rid of. You can do this by connect your computer to your Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus in order to remove files.

You can open the Settings and then enter factory data reset in your search box that is located on the top right hand corner. You can then choose relevant option and then reset the device. All of your information will be lost if you device to take this route.
