Some problems when having two Google account on a phone
Actually, I don’t mind to have 2 Google accounts on the same phone although sometimes the phone gets confused when I visit a place, it always thinks that the other account who visits that place and asking for a review.

The other problem was when saving a contact it saved to my sister account but I managed to make it default to save to my Google account.
Recently I often received a full memory warning, usually I just removed duplicate files, large files, Whatsapp images and videos, unused apps, and other small things. But several days later the warning pops up again. I found this was mainly caused by updated apps and some active WhatsApp group that send videos and pictures.
