TL;DR on bottom. i've had my LG Escape2 (shit phone, i know...) for about a year now and i've never been able to DO anything with it. Luckily, i haven't needed or had much desire to download and install mass amounts of apps, games or whatever. it's only got 8 gigs of onboard storage but i thought that would be enough. it's not. The ONLY apps i've ever installed that didn't come pre-loaded is a Firefox, a tiny app for ripping YouTube videos that i haven't used more than once, VLC, a basic podcast player, chiptune player and ArtFow, a super-basic drawing application. All together, i've installed less than 100Mb on this shite phone's internal storage. i also have a 32Gb SD card for art storage (<500Mb), music (mostly chiptune, so tiny) and photos i've taken which is fewer than 50 pics altogether. There's truckloads of space on my SD but the phone refuses to let me install apps and stuff there. Now (and forever) my bitch of a phone is constantly complaining about being "full". "No free space for updates", she says. "Delete some stuff", she says. Delete WHAT!? There's nothing to delete! i've installed CCleaner, cleared up cache, manually cleaned files, moved whatever i could to the SD card and there's nothing left i could possibly move or delete. All the AT&T bloatware bullshit is required for my phone to operate apparently because every single app is synchronized with every other app and if i disable, uninstall or disable updates on ANY of them, my phone's basic operations cease to function. -Even though i have (preloaded) two different map applications, three address books, four camera/video conferencing apps and countless others i have hidden from view due to screen clutter. There's an LG address book, an AT&T address book, a Google address book and a basic contacts list for phone numbers. WHY!?!?!?!? if i get rid of any of these things, my phone will implode!! Keep in mind: if i delete, uninstall or otherwise disable ANY of these AT&T or Google apps OR their updates, my phone will cease to work and/or pester me about updating each and every fucking application. Every 30 seconds my phone complains that "This apps need to be updated!", "This app and its updates are required for X to function!". i haven't even used or plan to use any of these stupid apps but after deleting even just one or two of them a few months ago, my phone bugged out and started pestered me NONSTOP about reinstalling them. One address book app automatically downloaded and "updated" my contacts with old phone numbers for family, added 50+ coworkers and people i don't even talk to anymore and added 100+ addresses to my contacts list of old ebay sellers, FurBid buyers and art commission from the early 2000's. Why do i need the email address for some dub fuck i bought a toaster from 12 years ago!? it fucked my WHOLE DAY up because i had to manually clean out each and every one of them. i disabled the offending app and it crippled every other function on my goddamn phone! i couldn't use wifi hotspots around town, location data stopped working, my email client crapped out, etc. So i had to turn it all back on and here we are... What's the point of having a phone if the software included and required for the phone's function is going to use every kilobyte of space? What good is a Google Play store if i can't download anything with it!?!? i realize that operating system, backup roms and system files are required but the phone's software claims that it only takes 5.2Gb of storage...supposedly. i've done everything i can to clean this thing out and make space for these "required updates" but it's simply never enough. ...EVER. - TL;DR - My 8Gb phone is "out of space" and i've installed all of 100Mb of shit to it EVER. i've cleaned it out both with automated software and manually. No luck. Of 8Gb, this shit phone has a whopping 30Mb free. Apps are begging to be updated and some are refusing to run altogether because i'm out of space. PLEASE HELP!
