    Hey,

    I have an huawei ascend y530 and well it makes me crazy.I dont need a superdemanding phone with lots of memory,i literally need a phone where can i use instagram,facebook(mesanger),whatsapp and enough memory to store pics.
    Apparently its not doable with this phone.I literally have no apps downloaded except Facebook,Messanger,Whatsapp and instagram.I have to use another phone just for music.The main problem now is i cant even store few images,i need to delete few of them and then store the ones i want.Its crazy,i have like 1 gb but its full and i have no idea how is it full :/

    One guy told me before its because i have weak ram(512 mb)and well all my stored apps need updates like everyweek and well they are getting bigger and bigger.
    In other words,my phone sucks and i need to get a new one or?

    It's only got 4GB, which really is an absolute minimum, just for a few basic apps.

    If you want to store music, pictures and videos, it does take a micro-SD, up to 32GB. That will certainly help.

    Your phone only has 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage, that puts it in a low-end ranking. It simply cannot adequately run a lot of apps that are currently popular, and even if you've added a microSD card you need to be very, very judicious on what gets saved to your phone's internal storage as 4 GB is a barely minimal amount. You really have to make a conscious effort to manually save as much of your personal data, like those photos, to the microSD card.

    You have to set your expectations in accordance with your phone's sparse specifications, or you're just going to keep being needlessly aggravated. Or invest in a better phone, even adequate budget models, like a sub-$100 Moto E comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage:

    But you'd probably be better off with anything in the 2 GB RAM/16 GB storage category, which is the minimum default for most basic, mid-range phones. You might want to look into getting a refurbished phone and save a few bucks:

    That's a pretty accurate list of the 4 most memory and storage consuming applications.

    As you said in your original post, your phone sucks, just not a lot of storage
