Re: Memory issue

So the 6.0 for the Z5 series is seeding now. Looks like Sony has opted NOT to include the adoptable storage on SD card in its version of Marshmallow. If they stick with this for M4, this phone officially becomes useless. Sony will not see anymore of mine money in the future.

Re: Memory issue

@mb011 You are aware that Samsung and LG dropped that option, aren't you?

Re: The 8GB model storage only has only 1.5 GB free

Well aware, but little does that good, knowing that I am stuck with only 700MB of free space, with only basic apps installed. And I thought I was buying a mid range phone, not a budget one.

Storage space is running out

I have the M4 aqua and keep getting message that storage space is running out. I've transferred everything it will let me to a 16Gb SD card and only have downloaded 4 apps. So many of pre- loaded apps can't be removed and the system itself uses half the memory. How do I solve this please

settings > storage > what do you see? 

 

also, settings > apps > all > sort by size > tap on the top 4 apps > clear data

Re: Storage space is running out

Thanks for that, there was only data to clear from facebook.  The other 3 were Google Play services Android System WebView and Office suite and nothing to clear.

Re: My phone storage

You can transfer media files and some apps to the SD card.
