Re:Releasing internal shared storage

2021-10-14, 5:26 AM

Yes this is the EXACT problem I have with my Lenovo smartphone. I have minimal apps installed but somehow it reaches 16GB capacity easily. There is something wrong with these phones. I have model L18021 aka A5. What I do noticed in the Android OS is there's some 'other' background apps when you scroll to the far right past the icon apps. I've never found a way to remove all that extra 'news' ads etc. that is similar to the Google News widget.


Another interesting find is using CCLeaner. Every time I run it, it claims to remove like 4GB of image.thumbnails on the phone but the memory never reflects this. Something is not right with the Android OS version or how it's setup. It could be allocating memory for other uses which can not be freed up?

Would love to find a solution to this. Certainly next smartphone I buy will not be a Lenovo.
