My OnePlus Two has 64GB Internal Storage and no SD card. It shows Phone Storage Full warning. When I investigated, I saw below stats and am unable to free space.

Settings > Storage & Memory > Storage & USB Internal Storage 53.62 GB Used of 54.00 GB

I clicked "Others". Next, "Explore" > "File Manager" > "Categories" > "Phone Storage" > "Storage Information".

When I check "apks", I see several apks for each app (which are presently installed or were installed in past). It looks like on each update of the apps, the apk file for each update in present on my phone.

I have tried some uninstalling apps but that does not remove all apks. I still see several apks for each app which I uninstall.

Example of apk names.

Facebook_140.  86.2 MB 
Facebook_141.  86.2 MB 
Facebook_136.  82.37 MB 
Facebook_135.  81.79 MB

Similarly for each other app on my phone.

Please help. Any solution other than phone reset ?

  • At first glance this seems like a bug in the ROM. Can you give more details about what ROM you have?

After an apk is installed it can be deleted from a file manager and you keep your apps/games.

    That is the temporary recurring solution I am doing. I thought there could be a way to fix this.
