Since the online storage – for private cloud – arrived on our smartphones and tablets, many manufacturers have begun to establish partnerships with the largest in this area such as DropBox, Box, SkyDrive, etc… to provide consumers with large storage capacity in line minimizing the physical memory and reducing production costs.
This is the case of HTC and Samsung, which since the beginning of the year, has partnered with DropBox to increase their devices virtual storage. But it is not only the case with HTC and Samsung because the South Korean manufacturer LG and Google have also done the same thing for the Nexus 4 with the Box platform, thereby unlocking additional 50 GB for life! In order to access these additional 50 gigabytes, just follow below steps.
Google has released currently only two versions of its Nexus 4: one 8GB version and a second version with 16 GB storage space. Some find this amount of space to small, especially when we know that with 16GB version there is only 12.95 GB usable space. In addition, the the rest of free space get filled out very quickly, especially if you are a photographer or a hard “big” gamer. All previously mentioned problems is probably one of the main reasons for this Google/LG have partnered with Box to increase their device space over cloud.
To make this process possible you will need to have Box app on your Nexus 4 devices. If you didn’t installed it you can download it from this link.
After you have sucesfullyinstalled Box app on your Nexus 4, open the application, create an account and login. After logging in, the following message appears:
Congratulations, you now have access to 50GB additional online storage with Box.
Note that this tutorial only works for the LG Nexus 4 and Box. It is not yet possible to use it on other devices. Fortunately, you can always unlock additional 48GB of DropBox, and on any device in Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) or higher.
