As pointed out by Can I install an app directly to my SD card? and our app2sd tag-wiki, what you want to achieve isn't possible for multiple reasons: To install the app, Play Store first needs to download it. These downloads usually go to /data/local, which is in internal storage. Not all apps allow to be installed on SD card. This is e.g. not possible for ...

I think your whole 4GB memory is in System Partition. If your bootloader is unlocked Download TWRP Recovery and install it. Then reboot into recovery and repartition your System. 500MB-1GB is enough for System Partition.

If you have large apps, then the total size of the app is not displayed: The extra files which the app needs in order to run itself, do not show up in the description of storage. That means the total size of your apps might be greater than 1.40 GB. This might be one of the possible reasons.

Apps like Link2SD/Apps2SD can be falsely miss interpreted, apps once installed can have extra data moved to the sd card but a main portion of the app like the launcher will need to remain on the internal storage. there for a app cant be 100% on the sd card. you can set apps to auto install on the sd card but they still need a part on the internal. id suggest ...

I had the same problem on an Allview P5 Life and I solved it by simply upgrading to Android 5.0 Lollipop. I used to have an A5 Smiley before this one as well, and I had the same problem... what I did to make it better was to root the phone and remove the bloatware saving a pretty substantial amount of space. This is however not really recommended and you ...

Yes, and it's easy. Whether an app is enabled or disabled is stored in a single file /data/system/users/0/package-restrictions.xml. I took the following steps to re-enable the Google App and solve my bootloop problem: Boot the Android-x86 virtual machine in debug mode (i.e. append DEBUG=2 to the GRUB entry) mount the filesystem: su cd /dev # these ...

I believe Apps2SD is what you are after. I have tested it on Moto E 1st Gen, which also has limited internal memory. Bear in mind, the apps you shift to SD card will load slow on your device. It will be very frustrating to use any app. A class 10 memory card is highly suggested, although I myself used a Strontium's class 10 SD card, but it still gives ...

This is exactly the issue I have with my new Motorola Moto E 2nd Generation using Android 6. The amounts of storage differ but the principle is the same ie when the internal storage used for apps and cache are added together they come to a approx 1.5gb but the total internal storage used shows as 2.82gb. The Android operating system uses 3.02gb so when this ...

I managed to fix the issue where I was getting an "Insufficient storage" for my camera app. This was after I 'changed' a MicroSD card in my Moto X Pure. It was driving me a bit batty. But it's fixed. I downloaded a file explorer (in my case it was ASUS File Manager). I saw that I had a DCIM folder. (Under Internal Storage and navigate to DCIM). I ...

@Jeffrey Lebowski the cache is used for storing shell script like commands file while rebooting to recovery mode to do a particular task (eg. Data Reset) if you shrink it too low it would never be able to store these scripts And as per as I know Google's Play Store to temporarily storage is in the Data Partition I maybe wrong though

The Android operating system itself and other programs that come pre-installed on your phone are also saved to internal storage. This is why the available storage will never equal the advertised storage capacity on any new phone. Some bloatware can be uninstalled and some cannot.

The default mount point for internal storage till Android 5.1.1 is /storage/emulated/0. To mount your internal storage manually, you may use the following commands => mount -o remount,rw / mkdir /storage/emulated/0 mount /data/media/0 /storage/emulated/0
