Really angry, the newly bought mobile phone, obviously has 256G, why is there so much space at once?

This is the recent complaint of Xiaobian friends, saying that the current mobile phone storage is really becoming less and less durable.

Indeed, now everyone's mobile phone also needs to install more than a dozen APP, so it will choose a mobile phone with larger memory.

Logically, under normal circumstances, 256G can meet the demand, why is it not enough?

Therefore, after the editor obtained his consent, he took his friend's mobile phone to check.

It was found that her phone did have a lot of game software installed, each of which occupied a few gigabytes of memory.

However, on the big head, it is WeChat, a look at it to know that it is a habit of cleaning up regularly, no wonder 256G is not enough.

However, now WeChat is really eating more and more memory.

No wonder someone joked that WeChat is deleted once a month! Then reinstall it once...

Indeed, WeChat has developed so far, and while changing people's lives, it has also begun to add more and more things, becoming bigger and bigger.

In 2011, the original version 1.0 WeChat was only 457KB, and now the 8.0.28 version has 254.34 MB, which has increased many times.

As for what is added to this, a b station UP owner has carried out reverse engineering to reveal the WeChat installation package.

It turned out that only 0.1% of the code in WeChat was really used for chatting, and the other code was basically used to run other functions such as small programs.

Moreover, purely from the point of view of installation, WeChat itself does not occupy a lot of space.

The main force of "eating memory" here is more of the pictures, videos and various documents and other files sent and saved during the use of WeChat.

That's why after a simple cleanup of chat history, the lack of memory can be alleviated.

But there's a bigger problem here.

That is, the analysis found that many audio and video files in WeChat files are duplicates and stored in different folders.

In order to figure out what is going on here, the up master has carried out some test verification.

It turned out that if you send the same file to two friends separately, WeChat will be resaved locally twice.

This logic is very scary, in case you send the same 100MB video to 10 friends, then it will directly occupy 1GB of memory?

On this point, Xiaobian is not very clear.

Obviously it is the same file, you only need to save 1 copy locally, the rest can not do the mapping can't be?

However, some netizens have different ideas about this logic.

I think that WeChat is doing this because you are worried that when you delete a friend's cache file, you will delete the same file sent to another friend at the same time.

I have to say that this idea still makes some sense.

Of course, WeChat also attaches importance to the problem of "eating memory", of which the "deep cleaning" function is a very good answer.

Enter your mobile phone WeChat, click "Settings - Help & Feedback - Small Wrench in the upper right corner" in turn, and click to open "Deep Cleanup".
