    Default I keep running out of memory on my Nextbook 8

    I have a Nextbook 8 (4.1.1) and a Galaxy S4 (4.4.2) Both have 8 GB internal memory and a 32 GB SD card. On the Nextbook I keep having to clear the cache and when updating Apps I have to uninstall a few so I have enough memory to work with. I've moved all the apps I can to the internal SD card (I understand that is about 7GB of the 8 GB and the other GB is for the system.) Looking at the system I see the 1GB is nearly full but don't see how to see what is on it that I might be able to remove. I don't have any problem with the S4. Any suggestions?

    Let's make sure we're on the same page. The regular S4 (not the Mini) should have 16 GB of internal storage, of which around 7 GB are taken up by the OS, TouchWiz, and other bloatware, leaving a little over 8 GB available to the user. As far as I know, the regular S4 doesn't come in an 8 GB version.

    The Nextbook 8 has 8 GB of internal storage, of which probably around 3-4 GB are taken up by the OS and bloatware. So the available internal storage to the user is probably around 4 GB. So it shouldn't be too surprising that the Nextbook runs out of storage sooner than the S4. Let me know if I'm getting this wrong.

    You are mostly correct - I erred with the S4 memory. The Nextbook divides the 8GB into 1 and 7 GB partitions. I believe the 7GB is what is used when I move an app to the SD card. I have plenty of room on the 7 GB part. Just can't seem to empty anything else out of the 1 GB partition.

    The Nextbook's storage partitioning is what's getting you. The 1 GB partition is likely the app storage, while the 7 GB partition acts as an "Internal SD." App installation is primarily to the 1 GB partition, although portions of the app can be moved to the Internal SD. The problem is that the app has to be able to install first to the 1 GB partition, and if there isn't enough room for that initial install, you'll get a low memory warning.
