    Hello everyone,
    Can someone please help me??

    I have a Hisense Sero 7 Pro tablet running on Android 4.2

    I was trying to install some new apps and also to update some of the existing ones. each time I try to install a
    new app or to update an existing one I get this message "OUT OF SPACE, (App title) could not be installed. Free up some space and try again"..
    Yet, when I check the memory status in Settings - Storage it shows a total memory of 5.84GB and available 4.91 GB. So, if i have 4.91 GB available why do i get this message??.

    Can anyone please let me know how to solve this problem??
    Thank you very much
    Rami

    Try deleting some apps that you don't use often. If /when you need them, you can reinstall them w/o paying again.

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    I deleted all the apps that I could. And as mentioned above, I have "out of 5.84GB I have available 4.91 GB, I had many instances before that I had a lot less than 4.91GB and I could still install new apps, why it won't let me know after I removed quite a few apps and made a lot of room. My existing apps and the operating system use only 0.57GB, I have 4.91 available!!!

    Now that you've deleted some apps, what is the tablet showing for the amount of available storage?

    As mentioned in my previous reply - 4.91GB (that's plenty of space ...)

    Your storage and app partition is different, you need to uninstall some apps, move any apps you can to sdcard.
