    The short answer: no. The next round of updates may address this to some degree, but in the meantime, you're forced to manage your data closely.

    Yup, I own a Lumia 810 and know exactly how you feel. Just keep your chin up and manage the data. Hopefully the next round of updates will give us both relief...

    I doubt they are going to provide any kind of app2sd(like in Android) seeing security concerns. It has not been implemented in IOS either, not sure if jailbreaking helps.

    they are better off implementing screen lock rotation, better audio api management, etc for the next WP update!

    That's why there are should be no cheap windows phones as they bring nothing. Minimum 16gb should be as the start point. Also I see no reason to release 512mb ram phones as they will not run a lot of new and upcoming games and even applications!

    But what if the apps and games are optimised for a 512mb ram device?

    They have cheap smartphones for people who dont want to pay full price for a high end device, or dont want to sign a contract to get a cheap price for a phone. If you want full features, you're going to have to pay for it.

    I feel this discussion is getting off-topic!
    I needed a solution to my existing device..not about how people don't want to pay and other ****...I already own iPod touch 5..and of course won't pay that much for a windows phone with so many glitches..

    What you're looking at is one of the trade-offs that comes with buying a low-end phone. It's not a glitch, as you say, but a matter of choosing to pay less for a phone with lesser capabilities. The reason that Nokia is making low-end phones is because there is a demand for low-end phones. If you want better, you'll have to buy better. And this is not getting off-topic - it's addressing your desire for more storage. Want more storage? Buy more storage.

    The Nokia Lumia Storage Check app lets you move your maps to the SD card too, saving some more space.

    I do wonder why I have 2GB of "other" files though. The app won't give details.

    Maybe addressing the 'other storage issue' in future updates could be kind of a solution.

    My storage displays that info too. I also have 2 GB of "other" files. I'm using Lumia 720. I thought MS already released an update to address that problem, but no update so far.

    It is the metadata in the "Other" folder, in particular, app metadata, that is the culprit.

    Right now, no. Hopefully this gets addressed the same way as the fist question you asked. You can in the meantime manage our metadata by clearing browser history, clearing app caches and stuff like that periodically and do the occasional factory reset.

    You need the latest firmware and it doesn't let you move existing maps. You've got to delete those and re-download.
