to the SD card if the app allows for it. It’s simple enough for you to do it without much worry.

There are two things you need to be aware of with moving apps to the external storage. First, these apps won’t work when you connect your phone to the PC and switch on storage mode. Second, the widgets of any app will not work when moved.

If you are someone who likes to try out new apps, play a lot of games, use several widgets, or are a general power user, then these phones are not worth it for you. They just won’t deliver the experience you are looking for.

If you are someone who just wants the basics—calls, SMS, email, WhatsApp, browsing, etc.—then the 4GB limitation is something you probably won’t mind because you are unlikely to install enough new apps or games to be affected by it.

And if the problem is still not solved, run DiskUsage to see what’s taking up the most amount of memory and delete it.
