    I have a Galaxy Core Prime and I seem to have used up all the free space on my phone. I just put in a 16GB card in it, but that didn't seem to make any difference. Out of the few apps I have, only about 5 can be moved to the card. Everything else is grayed out so I can't move them or uninstall them. I'm using Galaxy S Launcher.

    My phone specs are as follows:
    Model: SM-S820L
    Android Version: 4.4.4/KitKat
    Hardware Version: S820L.05
    Internal Storage: 8GB

    My storage information:
    System Memory: 2.86GB
    Device Memory: 4.5GB used/700MB free
    Used Space: 1.22GB
    Cached Data: 7.30MB (and that's after clearing the cache)
    Misc. Files: 3.27GB
    Available space: 663MB
    I have 13.50GB space left on a 16GB SD card.

    Apps currently installed:
    • Flashlight
    • Avast Mobile Security
    • DU Speed Booster
    • Facebook
    • Galaxy S Launcher
    • Google App
    • Google Play Services
    • Goggle Play Store
    • Messenger
    • Zedge
    • Spotify
    • You Tube
    Anything I can do to make more space?

    You should look into the Misc. Files just to see what is taking up 3.27 GB of space. I know I was able to delete some things from my device that were unnecessary in this category.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Along with 'Miscellaneous files' you might want to also check what's in your 'Used space'. Go back into Settings >> More >> Storage and tap on the 'Used space' icon. If you tap on each category you can check if you have some photos, videos, and music that you might be able to move to your microSD card. You can also tap on the 'Miscellaneous files' icon and that should open up a listing with check boxes where you individually select and delete items. You probably don't want to flush out everything but there's often an accumulation of junk files that aren't necessary and sometimes there are sizable folders left there from apps you have previous uninstalled that didn't get wiped.
