    Is there a way to clear space internally on my S5 G900V . I seem to be running out of memory and have plenty of space on my SD Card. Like moving any APPS or should I clear CASHED DATA?
    Thanks for any help

    where are your pics and videos being stored? Not many apps are movable, and it doesn't move the full app, but that could save some space.

    Some apps won't play well when they get moved to the extSDcard... trial and error, or just read the developer's tech notes.

    Apps cache data to save having to reload it. Different apps will store different amounts. If you do a lot of browsing, use social networking apps, let news sites pre-load stories, etc, then all of that is being cached.

    If your system's menus won't do it, there's a little app called Quick System Info that will let you list your apps sorted by cache size, so you can see which are the big users if you want (my biggest are 2 news apps and my main browser, but I don't have any social networking apps installed).
