Android 5.0 Lollipop: My free memory size was initially reduced after upgrading, but it has further reduced a few days after the upgrade. Why?

Last Update date : 2015.02.26



The file format of each installed application is updated during firmware upgrading and recently used applications are updated first. So it’s possible that some of the applications are not fully updated to new format.

When re-opening un-updated apps for the first time they will be 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.
