Some tips to save storage?

I have a 64 go iPhone so I don't have to deal with a lack of space on my main apple device. However my iPad Air is 16go and for the next one I will definitively go with a 64go too.
However I understand that not everybody can afford that ... Or neither upgrade when a new device comes out
The way I deal with the iPad is everything on the cloud .... Pictures (Google photos, Dropbox,..) music (Google music) , office 365 for work and of course minimal numbers of applications installed.
Thinking about expanding memory on the Samsung Galaxy S7, I remembered If have seen something similar for the iPhone/ipad but with the lightning port, a kind of USB flash drive that allow you to stock media on it without a wifi network, but I have never tried. Scandisk does it (Iexpand) but I'm sure you can find other less expensive brands.

Also consider looking at this

I'll move some of my media to my iPad which is 64GB but my important things, I'm going to keep on my iPhone.
