Rated 2 out of 5 by from No space! When I bought this, it was mainly for playing on google play apps. However, after a while it kept saying that there was no storage space to update any of my apps. When I try moving my apps to my SD card, it only moves about one third of the apps data to the sd card. This has been causing me to uninstall the apps I want to update, and then re-install the app just so I can play the updated version of the app. It would be extremely helpful if I could either move the entire app onto the sd card or delete some of the pre-installed apps that take up about 90% of the phone's internal storage. I know that I have plenty of unused space on my sd card that i can't fill up due to this situation.

Asked by: Gus gus
We are not familiar with the 4G LTE phones being obsolete. You would need to reach out to your carrier regarding this information. If you are looking for a 5G smartphone, our LG V50 ThinQ phone is our only 5G smartphone at this time. You can find more information about the V50 here: https://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v50-thinq-5g
