Android phones may already have a terminal emulator app installed by default (otherwise install a terminal emulator app from the Google Play store) then do the following;

tar czvf - inputfilename |split -b 5M - outputfilename.tar.gz.

Resulting filenames will be outputfilename.tar.gz.aa, outputfilename.tar.gz.ab, etc.

To extract/recombine;

cat outputfilename* |tar xzvf -
