There is no doubt that, no matter how much memory our smartphone has, it will be a matter of time before it begins to run low. That is why we will come to need a method to free up that space, or at least to increase it, without losing anything that interests us. Today, many phones still have external memory card slots. However, phones that lack this option are also being given to a great extent. That’s where the famous cloud and online storage services come into play. As is the case with Huawei Mobile Cloud services .
In recent times we have seen how more and more users are betting on this technology. Luckily, if you have a Huawei mobile in your hand, the solution is within your reach. And, our mobile devices have increasingly high capacities, which in many cases means that the storage runs out sooner. Therefore, it is important to know this service offered by the Chinese smartphone company to be able to store what we want on its platform.
What is it
Huawei Mobile Cloud can provide us with an easy and secure way to keep all our data. In addition to this, we must add that it will allow us to synchronize photos, videos, contacts and other data in order to keep an updated copy of these online.
This cloud platform from the Chinese firm also gives us the option of making an automatic backup of all the data on the mobile device, as well as the Find my phone function. And, as we will see later, we will also have the possibility of having the expansion or management of the space in the cloud, among other services.
To begin with, it must be made clear that all Huawei phones have 5 GB of free storage in the cloud. But, the downside is that there will come a time when they may fall short, but luckily for you, they can easily expand.
This storage can be used to sync albums among other items, back up important mobile data, save your documents, and much more. Although before we can use this online service, we will need to learn how to configure it. More than anything, because being able to find Huawei’s cloud storage, it will not be necessary to download an app, just enter Settings and click on our Huawei ID . So you should pay close attention to the next section.
How to configure
We have already been warning you that it will not be necessary to install an extra app on our mobile to get to have this cloud platform . We will only need to know how to find this tool from the phone settings of the Chinese brand. Therefore, you must follow the following steps:
- On the main screen of your phone or in the search engine you can find the native Settings app.
- At the top of your panel you must click to enter your ID of the smartphone brand.
- Once inside your profile, you will find the Cloud option.
- Start managing your 5GB of storage.
However, this manufacturer will let us expand this capacity for free up to 2 TB, a much higher capacity and that will allow us to free up a lot of internal memory. Of course, it will no longer be free, but we will have to pay for it as we will see later.
Within this cloud, all our smartphone information is synchronized. Therefore, so that you can access your multimedia content at any time from wherever you want, you will have to access Settings> Sign in with the Huawei ID> Cloud> Data synchronization.
Finally, click on the apps you want to enable Data Synchronization. Note that the associated data in the cloud is automatically synced to the phone. With this online service we can synchronize different content such as photos, videos, audios, user, telephone, calendar, event book, Wi-Fi, information and audios.
Even thanks to the Chinese firm’s cloud you can make backup copies. To do this, enter Settings> Login with Huawei ID> Cloud> Cloud Backup and enable the Cloud Backup option. Although, an easier way to manage Huawei’s cloud data is from its website . For this, you will have to log in with your Chinese brand account, and then see all the items that have been saved. In addition to deleting those that do not interest you and are occupying the storage.
As we said before, we must bear in mind that the free storage of these tools is 5 GB, although it is a capacity that will allow us to save thousands of photos, it is possible that many users need more space. And although the service is free at first, when we want to expand this space we will need to add a payment method , since it will be a necessary procedure if we want to change plans. Therefore, you must follow this process from your phone:
- Go to Settings.
- Click on Account Center.
- Enter Payments and purchases.
- Then add your preferred payment method.
Also, don’t worry if your smartphone is compatible or not, Huawei Cloud is compatible with terminals with EMUI 5.1 or higher, which practically includes all the brand’s mobiles in recent years.
In that case, the brand offers us options to expand this capacity, although we will have to pay for it. In order to improve Huawei’s cloud storage, you will have to follow these steps:
- Access the Settings.
- Click on the option to Sign in with the Huawei ID.
- Go to Cloud.
- Click Expand cloud storage space on your phone.
- Finally, select the plan you want and click Buy.
Once we enter this option, we will see the different plans that the company offers us, although, you must bear in mind that the price could be lower, since at certain times it offers different discounts:
- 50 GB of storage : 0.99 euros per month or 11.88 euros per year.
- 200 GB of storage : 2.99 euros per month or 35.99 euros per year.
- 2 TB of storage : 9.99 euros per month or 119.88 euros per year.
