My missus asked me to have a look at her phone as she had lots of updates which she could not installed because of the error message not enough space. She does not have many apps and I managed to clear some space and install the updates. But it got me thinking that phones advertise has having, these days anyway, as having 16Gb of storage but a goodly chunk of that is taken up with Android OS and then apps that the manufacturer feels that you want or need and I wonder how they get away with it, or rather how we allow them to get away with it. if you are only getting a certain amount of storage then surely you are entitled to know this? At least with most Android phones you can add a SD card unlike the overpriced Apple phones who one needs to sell their first born if you want reasonable storage. Tablets also have the same issue, I have a Samsung Tablet and the amount of bloatware is ridiculous though be fair the Amazon Fire tablet my good lady got it did not compare and she promptly sold irt on. It seems tech companies like mobile and broadband providers get pretty much make any ridiculous claim and get away with it. According to the National Infrastructure Commission the UK is being held back by poor mobile phone connectivity and Britain is 54th in the world for 4G coverage, and the typical user can only access 4G barely half the time. I can vouch for that as travelling around Edinburgh how crap the 4G coverage is. And there is talk of 5G, will this be another farce where the government makes billions selling off the licences but companies will still only provide a service that makes them the most money but still be third world?
