Lockheed Built a Ridiculously Huge Sound System That Will Never Play Music

Calling all space ravers: Here's an absurdly large sound system that will never blast galactic beats. It's powerful enough for a huge concert at a stadium, but this towering rig will never make sound for ears.
We recently learned about the European Space Agency's killer acoustic chamber which is allegedly so loud that no human could survive inside. Now look at the photo above, taken at the Lockheed-Martin Waterton Reverberant Acoustic Lab: These stacked speakers produce a deafening roar of up to 150 decibels. The goal is not to shower the Orion spacecraft with tunes-the din simulates the vibration and noise that occur during launch. 150 dB is about the same amount of noise a gunshot produces right next to your ear, or a jet engine on full throttle at a distance of 30 meters. So it's loud!
The advantage to the new rig is that it's portable. Just as Metallica rolls its sounds system into stadiums each night, NASA and Lockheed can test spacecraft anywhere it can truck the speakers.
The Android Playstore is an enticing marketplace, filled with apps you want but you probably won't ever use. If you have any of such apps downloaded, uninstall them from settings --> Apps.
Clear Cache memory
This is where most of your storage space gets occupied after a few days of use. Apps and websites save a lot of data so as to reduce loading time. But this data is almost irrelevant if you have a working internet connection, so delete the cache memory and free up a lot of space.
You can do it by going to:
Settings --> Storage & USB--> Internal Storage-->Cached Data
Move or downsize pictures
With the convinience of cloud storage at the tip of our fingers, pictures doesn't have to stay on your phone and clutter up your storage. Instead, back them up online using Google Photos and delete them from your memory. You'll be surprised by the amount of space you will free up.
Alternatively, download Photo And Picture Resizer and resize the images, so that they occupy minimal space on your storage. Make sure you back up the full-resolution originals first.
Videos take up a mighty lot of space too, so back them up on cloud or upload them privately on YouTube. Then delete them to free up storage.
Delete your downloads
Go to Settings --> Downloads and see if you have downloaded any large file. Delete them to clear up the clutter.
Look for folders that are taking up huge space and delete them
Download ES File Explorer and analyze what folder is taking up the most space. If the folder is not required, delete it and repeat the process.
The most annoying thing with buying a smartphone is dealing with the useless number of bloatware apps that comes pre-loaded with the device.
Most of these apps cannot be deleted, but if you have a rooted device, you can go ahead and delete them using Root Unistaller.
If its not rooted, simply disable these apps from Settings--> Apps
