    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Phone storage is less (as stated 86MB). Install it directly to SD card if your device allows that.

      • I am also facing the same problem with my Micromax Canvas L (A108).
        I have done that by selecting external SD card. But still its showing the same error while downloading any app through Google play it shows “There is insufficient space on your device”.
        Even my phone storage is=
        Phone 60 MB
        Internal 3.45 GB
        External 11.23 GB
        Plz reply .. I am waiting .

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      Free up some space from the internal storage. If your device allows the installation of apps to the external SD card switch the preferred storage location to External SD card. Follow Settings–>Storage–>Preferred storage location.

      Which phone do you have? Check the internal storage, may be the apps are getting installed on internal memory.

    I have a micromax Canvas 1 with updated software Android 5. I am not able to add new contacts. Once I try, the icon of a person with + sign does not appear which it normal . Instead, Google Talk screen appears prompting talk. Kindly help.

  31. Jeetendra says:

    I’ve noticed apps that I never installed – apps like newshunt, snapdeal, etc. These aren’t exactly light apps, mind you – they’re atleast 7-8 MB each. Space is really short. I need to uninstall games if I want to update Whatsapp, it’s that bad. Meanwhile, looks like Micromax is installing apps without my permission, using up precious space and my 3G! Apps reappear after uninstalling them. This is ridiculous! Many times, instead of downloading apps, it creates 8-10 notifications which are advertisements for online stores and other apps. All of this happens immediately after connecting to the internet which I mostly do using airtel 3g/wifi.

    I did the “long press on notification” thing and it says the app responsible for generating these notifications is SoftwareUpdate which is a System app and can’t be uninstalled and restarts automatically when disabled.

    I am absolutely outraged and want to know what I can do to make Micromax stop highjacking my 3g and my internal storage space for their profit. Please help!

    • Rahul Mehta says:

      If your device doesn’t receive regular updates then simply root it and uninstall such apps and that software updater as well.
