Yesterday go to take a pic but got message " no storage" so couldnt. (Have say 50 pics, 3-4 downloads- trademe etc.,no music or videos)
So went to experts yesterday and they freed up 50MB by shifting stuff to sd card.Am guilty of not deleting old emails.Be happy to delete all old emails.
What is wrong that have no storage ,cant even download- no room.

This handset is only 8GB I thought out of the box and what size SD card is in the phone?

 

Linux

 

Edit: Could be 16GB actually but almost 50% is taken up by the OS

I think on some, there is also a backup of the OS on it, so the actual usable storage on it may only be about 2GB from new. Not sure you can use a card on your version of the OS, to install apps on the card, rather than the internal storage. The trick is to minimise the amount of storage diiferent apps are caching. Surprised an Expert only managed to get you 50MB.

the latest android and google updates have all but destroyed a fleet of these at work

and my older s3 and moto x. 3 google services at about 140mb each, fb and its management apps sit about 250 per app. and mail apl cache with latest os (includes office apps) blows it out of the water

we all need powerpoint and its 230mb usage right. ..

Agreed. 8GB model is a bit of a joke. I regretted getting a Sony Xperia 8G. It is actually a very nice phone with Octa core and a nice screen but the 64bit Android and Google apps took up nearly 6 GB of storage and you are only left with 2 GB to play with.

 

Having an SD card is only of partial help as you can't move apps to SD card. Minimum storage should be 16GB if you are a moderate user.

I thought the J5 Primes were all 16GB. Were some early models 8GB?
