I’ve been trying to free up space so my phone will do updates it is saying not enough storage. What usb flash drive do you recommend I purchase to download photos on to free up some space. I do not want to pay for iCloud   I’m looking for a 1TB. 
or any recommendations would be great?  
thank you.

Are you wanting connect the flash drive directly to your phone or to a computer/laptop? Unless you have a really old computer, most computer hard drives should have enough space for you to connect your phone to it via USB cable and you can move photos and video from your phone and onto your computer's storage drive. Even if the computer doesn't have enough room then any external hard drive or flash drive with enough space can be used to transfer the files from the phone to the drive.

Not sure how much we are allowed to "advertise" for other companies or devices here.  What about using a search engine for "best flash drive" and do some web surfing for reviews on whatever products come up?

I have done this and like I said the one I did purchase did not work it kept  stopping not even 10% of the way through. Maybe I should just go the way of an apple product I guess for success. But you can most certainly recommend another if you want.

Thumb drives are like dinosaur tech now because so many people use some kind of cloud storage for backing up or transferring data to free up space elsewhere.  There are free cloud storage services but they don't have terabyte storage capacity - you'd have to pay for the cloud service to get that much space.  I like Ann154's idea.  (Sorry, I can't mark your post as a solution.  There's some issue with my browser methinks.)
