LG K8 4G internal storage space nearly full. Is there any way to free up space?

Hello, I'm being informed that the internal storage space is nearly full, but the local EE shop cannot help. The system takes up over 4GB and Apps which can't be removed take up another 3. There is a software update to download but space is really tight. Any ideas??

Hi @Martyn1973 and welcome to the Community.

 

Does any if the apps you have allow to move to SD?

 

Many thanks,

No, the apps are pre-loaded and can't be moved. I have spoken to EE technical support and LG support. The conclusion seems to be that as the phone is working ok, then leave well alone. However it has also been said that perhaps 8GB of internal storage simply isn't enough these days. 16GB phone next time for me.

Hi @Martyn1973,

 

Have you tried clearing your phone's cache?

 

You can do this by navigating to Settings>General>Storage>Cached Data

 

This might free up some space.

 

Thanks

I too consulted an LG expert, unfortunately the model,and a few more of their ilk,are 'duds' because of inadequate internal storage,the operating sys. taking up nearly the lot !.. boycott the brand and go for a Samsung,or similar reputable user friendly types.... i'm getting rid at end of contract.

I've now upgraded to a LG K8 2017. It cost me £99 but at least I've now got 16GB of internal storage which should be enough.
