How many apps can a 16 gb and 32gb smartphone hold ?


AC Question

I am not a strict gadget lover but just out of curiosity wanted to know about the number of apps a gadget can hold. New apple watch claims to be able to handle 3000 apps... do all devices with similar memory give a similar performance?

Welcome to Android Central! It depends entirely on how big each app is. Apps can be as small as <1 MB and as big as a few GB. Apps written for a smartwatch are clearly going to be a lot smaller than those written for a smartphone, so you can't really compare them.
