My free memory size was initially reduced after Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. But I think free memory size has further reduced in size again over the last few days since performing the upgrade some days later. Why?

Last Update date : 2015.01.12

The file formats of each installed application are updated during firmware

upgrading and recently used applications are updated first.

So it’s possible that some of applications are not be updated fully to new format.

When re-opening some un-updated apps for the first time they will updated to new

file format and have bigger file size.


Note: The above advice relates to Android 5.0 feature, and the advice

above is NOT exclusively applicable to Samsung devices only.
