    I recently purchased an LG Tribute 5. I have downloaded a few apps onto it, the largest being Facebook. Last night, I let the phone do its update on other apps overnight. When I woke up, I had error messages telling me I didn't have enough storage available.
    Settings shows I still have 8MB available and its brand new. I don't have any music on it or anything.

    8MB is, for all intents and purposes, 0MB.... hence the warning. That phone only has 8GB of on board storage, and after the OS, reserved partitions, etc, you probably only have 4G, give or take, of storage space available for your usage. That is extremely limited.

    I would remove Facebook and use an app like Metal Pro or some other lightweight Facebook web wrapper. Facebook is a MASSIVE app and between the app and its cache and data, it could eat up 500+MB in and of itself. It's a bloated pig of an app.

    I would also utilize the SD card that the Tribute has.... mostly as a place to stuff your pictures and videos, since storing them on the on-board will be tough.

    Spread the message to your friends too! Don't buy phones with less than 32 GB On-board Storage and if there is a 64 or 128 option, buy that!

    In general I strongly recommend at least 500mb free and preferably 1gb. Less than that and you could have memory issues

    Not only that, but half the changes break their own app for weeks until they finally fix the bugs they introduce.
