305mb isn't a lot to do much with as the apps collate cached data.

Internal Storage of 8gb or 16gb minus what the Operating System takes up isn't a lot to begin with.

Does your model of phone allow the transfer of Apps to Sd Card ?

If not then deleting items will free up space such as....

unused or rarely used apps.
Music and Videos.
Texts.
Notes.
Calendar Entries.
Emails.
Pictures.

Hi,

 

I ve managed to solve the problem. All that was needed was for the SD card to be wiped/formatted to scratch. Apps now work as expected.

Thanks, I will have to try this.

 

Im also finding that apps disappear from my folder when i power down and then start up the phone again. im guessing this is because these apps have been moved to the sd card. Is there any way this could be avoided without having to move the apps back again  to the folder every time i power down and up ?

Hi,

 

 

The movement of App's to a Sd Card away from the phones internal storage wouldn't typically cause them to disappear.

Without looking at your phone in my hands I'm not sure what's going on.

Can you get to a Samsung service location?
