I have a Alcatel OneTouch Star, Im running Android Jellybean the phone has 8 or 4GB storage Im not too sure but the low down is when i go into settings and look at how much free space i have it starts at 2MB then it changes to something like 250MB within a second then it changes to 1.7GB after 2-3 seconds. I have uninstalled all things I can, except for Facebook, Instagram and Snap chat. Its not the actual notification that Is bothering me, its the fact that I have 1.7GB of free space but the system doesn't let me download anything because it says that I don't have enough free space, so I think you can see why that would get on my wik, so can anybody help me? It would be much help
I believe that most phones seem to like a certain amount of space free, to keep things running smoothly. If you try to downloaded something that would leave too little space free, it won't let you. Kind of like how Apple IOS system updates can required 4GB of free space though it may need less than 1GB in reality.
In any case, your phone is capable of using a removable microSD card, and with the piddly 4GB of internal storage- of which only 2.5GB are available to the end user, that is exactly what the phone makers are encouraging you to do. You should invest in a microSD they are available in large sizes- 32gb is the largest without needed to format the card.
