Unlike iPhone, Android phones aren't slowed down purposely with updates.
android always step a head from iOS, but actually lag a few years related to this feature
someone123, 18 Jan 2021iOS does not install (or uninstalls?) app you haven't used in a while. They are marked wi... moreNo, it actually means it's uninstalled but the user data is still in the device. It's a good approach if you don't wanna lose your progress in a game that rarely uses anymore.
To be honest I want a system level option to clear the cache, the apps on the play store don't work anymore with the way the android is now. So it's boring to manually delete the cache from the settings and also from the recovery mode.
Also the raw size of the apps had increased a lot lately, I hope they use a good compression algorithm that favors compression effectiveness instead of decompression speed, or at least give us the option to choose which one(personally I like zstd, it has both good compression and decompression speed)!
I make basic android apps for uni and I noticed that whenever I make a lot of changes and build the app, it gets bigger and bigger fast, and I need to do clean project and rebuild to make it as small as it was, I guess the big companies do this because if not, this is can be considered negligence. I have also heard that the .aab format saves storage cause when you upload it on play store the platform can generate an apk with only the parts needed for your phone.
Another thing that I would love to see is the ability to have multiple simultaneous downloads and if possible, installations as well like the Microsoft store on Windows 10.
I don't know how the updating method works but even on my somewhat old high-end phone(Galaxy S7), it struggles when apps with big updates are being installed(The phone lags during the installation period).
I think it has to do with the part that it's downloading the changed parts of the apps, in the past when you got an update and it was a whole redownload, I think it was faster and more lightweight.
abit of a weird feature with advantages and disadvantages
but when you need that app its gonna be downloading and reloading everything
caching is there for a reason that is why appa load much faster after first run
SHAPESHIFTER, 18 Jan 2021Just uninstall the app you rarely use,it's not rocket science,😱Why ? Instzllibg the app each time you wa't to use it isn't practical
iOS does not install (or uninstalls?) app you haven't used in a while. They are marked with a cloud icon, and will be re-downloaded when you click on them. I'm assuming this is the same.
Just uninstall the app you rarely use,it's not rocket science,😱
Every one praise that future like is gone do much! All apps have maybe 3gb. Who cares about 500mb saved by this gimmick?! Useless things like a lot done by Google.
On crap apps, Do you want to uninstall this never used apps will saving more battery?
"may be included in Android 12"?
Might as well just ignore it as no OEMs will be bothered by it.
Shady69, 18 Jan 2021why not reprogram android to not use so much ram, storage before something like thisbecause for them this is much easier than fully debugging the kernel, although that is what they should do, and for that they are supposed to launch Fushia OS
Shady69, 18 Jan 2021why not reprogram android to not use so much ram, storage before something like thisThat will it be done with Fuchsia OS

It would be nice if Samsung’s BLOATWARE would also hibernate. But knowing Samsung that’s a big NO!
It'll be great for everyone who will just run out of updates before they get this one. Particularly lower end models which would benefit the most from this...
Sad day for whoever cried for removing sd card on s21 series... Hahaha
