I'd say, definitely clear your cache.

Here are some specific reasons why the update is so large:

New Android 14 features: Android 14 introduces a variety of new features, such as improved battery optimization, enhanced privacy controls, and a redesigned notification system. These features require additional code and resources, which in turn increase the size of the update.
Performance improvements: Android 14 also includes several performance improvements, such as faster app loading times and smoother multitasking. These improvements require optimizations to the underlying code, which can further increase the update size.

Enhanced security: Security is always a top priority for Android, and Android 14 brings several new security enhancements. These enhancements include improved encryption algorithms and stricter app permissions, all of which require additional code and data.

Device-specific changes: In addition to the changes introduced by Android 14, Samsung also makes its own customizations to the One UI software. These customizations, such as new design elements and additional features, also contribute to the update size.

Ok i understand some of these and there's a few things i want to say, i undestand the purpose of these updates and what they can do but they make it too frequently and an update for me takes about 2-3hours?

And while you say the changes it makes, i only notice a few upgrades,the phone being faster is mostly fake or just bs cause my phone still works on the same speed everytime, app loading time only became like 1-2 seconds faster

The security update,yes i undestand but so frequently and it takes so much storage?

A bit of a comparison to my 2 years tablet, after about a 1 and a half i didn't update it, it didn't change nor get any trouble the only difference being is mostly the ui but thats it?

For this big of a system update I'd like to expect that it makes my phone very fast have a vpn already somehow get a pc game here(this is an exaggeration)

Whatever, still i just want to say that system updates are TOO BIG it really feels like we're getting scammed of the internal storagewe are buying for

Im expecting that they would lower the system update to atleast just 8 or 9gb if possible or atleast work hard enough,and again im asking if theres any way to remove some of the system update or atleast decrease the gb needed for it.

Just a thought......

You haven't mentioned what device you have, but are you able to add external storage (i.e. an SD Card or Micro SD Card) to store your own stuff like pics, videos and documents on leaving the internal storage on the device to actually run the device?

Is this an option for you at all?

A04e is my phone and yes i can put an sd card to it, another problem is most sd card have a very slow transfer speed as I've already experienced, and most apps or even documents that i have can't and already says that i can't move it to the sd card

So either i try and modify and, i don't know experiment with this phone or get a new one with bigger storage after 2 years of sadness using this

I mean, how do you expect a smartphone to be smart without a smart OS?
