It was brought for playing games, but less than 10% of the storage is suitable for games. Its been difficult to put more than about 2 games that her boys are interested in on them. So yeah I'd suggest 'not suitable for purpose'

so you were told or there is instructions that it is capable of playing large games?, if you asked the question and was informed it was ok then, sure, take it back


The Warehouse are pretty good but I would suggest you get what you pay for.




Galaxy S5 G900F
Samsung (custom)  KITKAT 4.4.2 

Galaxy Gear 2  Smart watch (great gadget )

Agreed you get what you pay for (I never suggested she purchase them either), they're not mine, and its not my problem. But the warehouse is usually pretty good for returns.

I was just trying to be helpful, and learn something in the process.

I dont think 180MB are big games. You would expect a 4GB tablet to fit even 1x180MB game. 1GB+ is a big game.

uglyb0b: You won't be able to fill an entire laptop hard drive with whatever you like. The operating system takes up space regardless of what device you are using.

Right, but if I understand correctly then this problem isn't due to the space being used by the OS, but rather by the device always trying to put apps on the small partition. I haven't used Android for a few years (OS 2.3) but even back then I could fill my 16 GB phone with about 14 GB of music, but only 2-300 MB of apps. There was a "move to SD" option but it was greyed out for a large number of apps.

I expect that in this case the tablet would probably hold a couple of gigs of music with no trouble, but apps seem to be "special" (even though as proven by "move to SD" there's no technical reason why they have to be on the small partition).
