    What is the best way to free up space on a GS6? When trying to download new apps I get "insufficient storage" message. Is a memory card the best way to go? If so what is the suggestion of what exactly to designate to that memory card?

    Hello again. I will give it a try in case you leave us.

    Most flagship devices I think allow a generous amount of internal space for apps, and their future updates. Low end devices, though they may have 4 or 8gb total, would only allow sometimes a little over 1 gb for apps, if memory serves (ooh - joke).

    I have had 7 to 9 gbs of stock and downloaded apps on my 32gb Samsung Note 3.
    I currently have 3.42 gb for "app data and media content" on my 8gb Moto G.

    You may have a lot of large games, I don't know.

    You can move some of the data from most downloaded apps to sd card, but that doesn't always free a lot of internal space because of the way Android apps work with sd cards.
    (Applications Manager - Sd card - select app - App Info - Move to SD Card)

    You may have an issue with logcat files.
    Have you looked at My Files (open Used Data), and Storage).

    If there is a large amount of used storage you cannot account for, you can dial *#9900# (tbc) and delete dumpstate/ logcat files or something like that, it's the second option and is safe.
    Sadly most major carrier versions have these access codes blocked.
    Come back if these don't work and there is someone here who can help you further.

    You have used very little storage.
    Do you have another device on your Google Play account. Are you downoading from Play Store on a pc or the app.
    What size are the apps.

    What does your total device Storage say. 32gb / 64gb.

    Try the Spec Device or Antutu app for device information, just in case.

    We are talking about a Samsung S6 correct?
