Please help me fix this storage problem on my android 4.4.2 phone? Answered
Hi, I bought a new (cheap) "AKAI Dragon" android "kit kat" phone, and when I tried downloading more then a few apps, it said that there isn't enough storage on my internal memory. SO, I went to settings -> storage, and selected "phone storage" as the default write disk, and rebooted.
Except that didn't work! "Phone storage" was still selected, but nonetheless when I tried downloading apps, the same problem appeared, with a window telling me to either uninstall existing apps, or to go to storage settings.
Now, I did/checked everything I could think of for 3 days: as I said, I changed the default write disk, I tried moving existing apps to phone storage myself, but the button was not "active", I even rooted my phone and got rid of all the social apps I didn't want, but no matter what, when I try to install an app rom the play store, I'm met with the same message sending me to storage settings.
Every time when I check storage settings, "phone storage" is selected as default write disk, but when I go to app settings, I discover that all of the apps are installed on "Internal storage" with no possibility to move them...
(note that I rebooted my device multiple times while changing settings)
What is worrying to me is that you cannot even choose "Internal Storage" as a write disk; there is only phone storage and SD card.
So, does anyone have an Idea as to how I can start downloading apps to my almost empty 1.5 GB phon storage???
Or is this just a major bug?
PS. please note that I'm not unfamiliar with Android phones; this is my third AKAI phone, just a bit upgraded.
Also, sorry for the length of the question.
