Hi there, I've just made the mistake of buying a Samsung Android for the first time. This lack of memory problem is absolutely infuriating. I had an iphone for 12 years, my most recent one for 5 and never once did I have to do anything to it ever. They don't have Device Care or optimise now rubbish, they just work. I had 15550 photos on mine, auto app updates and iOS updates and it just worked. The only problem with iphone compared to Android is the connectivity with your PC. Backing up and restoring the device is fine but, transferring photos and such like is easy but a bit messy. They don't have a slot for an SD card. I can't afford a new iPhone ATM but as soon as I can, I will be getting one. On the Android side, I must admit the chat heads are great, on iPhone you have to close an app in order to check a message on messenger then reopen previous app which is a pain in the backside. Hope this helps.
Um....that's what we're saying. We do not want to do that every day or a few days.
I think that's straightforward as we can be. It's a pain. I hate going through the device list constantly. Plus now, device care does not clear out caches.....so I still have to go through each app and delete the caches.
What happened Samsung?
I've been an advocate for tou guys for a very long time. Way back when I had a Samsung Siren back in 2007.
You all need to fix this.....or you'll definitely loose an extremely loyal customer.
I never update my apps and auto update feature is turned off BUT still my apps come back to internal storage after some time. I don't know why but I guess even restarting the phone forces my apps to come back to internal storage and I would have to manually transfer my apps to external storage every few days. I hate my Samsung phone now and I want to change my phone to get rid of this problem. Is there any other android phone makers that doesn't have this problem. Please introduce any android phone you know...
This is the worst response I have ever seen, the problem essentially makes buying external storage a waste of time as the whole system collapses when the apps move back to the internal storage and it takes forever to work though the apps and move them back. Eventually you just resign yourself to the fact you are limited to whetever the internal storage is for apps, which when you have a 16 GB internal memory should be quite a few, but no most of the space is taken up with operating system leaving bugger all for the apps.
Rather than saying it is "relatively straightforward" you need to address the fact that it is a massive stuff-up by the software designers that has not been addressed in years.
Did you know that App developers control the ability for their individual apps to be used on internal or external storage? This means that if you move an app and it moves back, either the app you see internal is only the cached data or that developer doesn't support external storage usage.
