    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum , and this is my first time posting.

    I own a Canvas HD a116i , which is giving me a really weird problem. The "Phone" storage is Showing full , and the phone storage limit is 0.99 GB as showed in the Settings> Manage Apps section.

    However , my "Internal Memory" has a total storage of 1.76 GB and has 800MB free in it.

    I BARELY HAVE ANY APPS INSTALLED , AND I FORMATTED MY PHONE LAST TIME BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. EVEN WITH JUST A FEW APPS , THE STORAGE WOULD COME FULL, INSUFFICIENT SPACE ERROR WHILE TRYING TO DOWNLOAD FROM PLAYSTORE, AND NOW AN ERROR KEEPS POPPING UP EVERY 5 SECONDS, SAYING INSUFFICIENT FREE SPACE , CLOSING APPLICATION.

    I am temporarily managing by clearing the cache of facebook and chrome , but i'll be going on a vacation on the 14th , and i need a few apps installed for that.

    I have the following apps installed:
    -Facebook
    -Instagram
    -What's App
    -Retrica
    -Snap Chat
    -Camera 360
    -Google Chrome

    I have tried:

    1.Formatting My Phone
    2.Formatting both internal and SD card
    3.Clearing cache of google play store and google services
    4.deleting as many as apps as possible and keeping only the essentials

    -My phone is NOT ROOTED
    -I have a 16GB class 10 Micro SD card
    -Running on stock Android 4.2.1
    -There are no updates for the phone so far

    Why is there a seperate "Phone" memory and "Internal" Storage. I have been trying to solve this problem for a few weeks now , and decided to come here.

    Any help would be apprieciated

    Hi Ghostface16. You are working down the right path. With limited resources you should limit your apps, clear cache on apps, purge old texts, move pics and tunes to your SD card etc. I hope this helps you out. Thanks for joining and using these forums.

    Thank you olbriar.

    But I have just a few apps installed , and my phone memory is "FULL"
    In the beginning when a just bought my phone , I had installed 10 times more apps and still had some free space left.

    What seems to be the problem now ?

    Clearing the cash and checking your texts and email. You might take a serious look at your browser history. It can build quite a cache. Attachments/photos/vids can really take up a lot of space as well. I don't think it's the amount of apps you have installed but more of it's history that is giving you grief.
