Apps storage space issue

TV: UE55 NU7500

I'm not sure whether this is a general Samsung issue or just to do with my TV, but the amount of space allocated to the Smart Hub apps seems to be seriously lacking.

 

As this is a new TV I thought I'd explore some of the available apps, but when I went into the Apps area I got a message saying that there was insufficient space to update apps. This was before I had downloaded anything, so it would purely apply to the pre-installed apps. 

 

I checked settings and the used space was 751MB with 64MB available, i.e. 7%. This seems absurd as these apps can't be deleted and are built into the system. The available space doesn't even allow them to be updated. I then tried resetting Smart Hub. This has helped to an extent as the available space is now 13%. However, it's still far too low and whenever I try and download a new app I get a warning about available space.

 

I can't believe that the pre-installed apps are taking around 700MB of space, and it seems crazy that Samsung would design the system this way. Presumably I will have to install an SD card to provide more space for the apps?

Any tips welcome as this is my first Samsung TV.

So this looks to be an official forum from Samsung, but no genuine answer from the brand in this thread.

I just registered to share my issue, the TV that I bought 3 years ago, has no free space left, after the factory reset not even the apps open, contacting Samsung repair center the only option I got is to get a new motherboard.

Please note that the update was OTA automatically, so they don't even need to plan obsolescence, just provide an update and now the TV doesn't have space for even the apps that came with it.

Is there any way to access it via ssh and just delete the trash apps so it can be usable again?
