Open the app Settings and select Memory & Storage: you should have 300 MB or more free space on your internal storage. if there is less free space, delete cached data and infrequently used applications. To delete the cache, go to "Settings", select "Storage", then open "Cache data" and click "Clear cache".
To uninstall unneeded apps, go to Settings, select Memory & Storage, and click the Storage button. A new dialog box will display a list of applications and the amount of resources they are consuming. Click on the largest app and select the Force Stop option. This will free up some RAM.
