Ascend y215 storage problem

Reviewed on Wednesday September 9, 2015 by , Pointe-du-Chene, N.B., Canada
I bought the y215 for phone only but was intrigued with wifi and apps available. I installed a 32 gb storage card but some apps told me "not enough to download the app" even though I configured the y215 accordingly- help please

Huawei app storage

Reviewed on Thursday August 22, 2013 by , Calgary
I agree with the last reviewer, in that it is odd that they only allocate 480mb for apps, but really its not a big problem, just add a 16gb SD card on the phone for $12.00 and you have as much storage as you need. All in All, a great little phone for the money!!

Not an ideal Android phone

Reviewed on Saturday August 17, 2013 by , Canada
If you are looking for an affordable Android for only making phone calls and texting, this phone is OK. But if you are looking to install apps, games, etc., this is not the phone to buy.

Storage indicates 4 GB on the specs however only 630 MB are dedicated for apps. Not sure why and how to change the config to increase the storage allocation.

RAM is only about 390 MB which results in very poor app performance and overall usability suffers; the apps are slow to load and switching back to the Home screen has significant lag time.

The only pro might be the size - if you are tired of some of the big and bulky smart phones, this may be a welcome break from those in terms of its size.
