The answer is "it depends on the app". Most of the things you as a user interact with on Android (including the home screen itself) are apps. Android comes with a set of apps created by Google that ensures a basic level of functionality (e.g. Clock, Home, Download manager, web browser, Dialer, Contacts manager, Calendar, SMS/messaging, etc.) These are ...

Not all apps are device dependent, but many are. One particular example is, indeed, the camera app, which is often dependent on OS revision, the actual hardware, and the framework the OEM is using (such as Touchwiz on a Samsung device). Many are reliant on the version of Android, although typically this only impacts using on an older version, up to a point. ...

Click on an app that you don't use it or have a high memory consumption 5. Click stop Hope this works. If this method doesn't work, you might need to factory reset your phone. That's my suggestion

It sounds like your problem may not be with the browsers, but that Android doesn't have any app willing to support the specific download. You could try downloading an app which has an option to support all downloads, such as ES File Explorer. It should then offer to open the GPX file when you click on it to download.

You could just use PushBullet. If you configure it so your desktop PushBullet client automatically opens all links you send to it, and you send the specific download URL, it should begin downloading it automatically, assuming you have your browser set to download to a specific location every time.

When the apps are developed there is an option whether to allow it to move it to external memory or not. However for most apps you will be able to move them partially (only data in most cases).

Can I get rid of them? Sure! If you wanna go straight ahead then try an app like System app uninstaller to remove system apps including the bloatware.

If by "mg" you mean "MB," then 100MB free is not enough for anything on an Android device. While it seems like 100MB free should be enough, Android requires well more than that to be able to function, as it needs breathing room for temp files, caches, and more. While that app is only 10MB now, it could easily need well more than that when unpacked and adding ...

Some apps have the ability to store data onto an external SD card. Just make sure the SD card is formatted first, then check the settings "within" the app itself to see if there's an option to save or move data to the ext SD card. If I had to guess, I would say Spotify is eating up a lot of your storage memory. I would start there first and clear out the ...

I can't tell why your apps disappeared, but I think you're not able to reinstall them because of leftover data files. I used SD Maid to delete data corpses, in order to be able to reinstall some apps after flashing a rom. Once installed, go to CorpseFinder, scan and then delete the corpses you find. You should then be able to reinstall your missing apps.
