  2. Thanks for write me a nice comment.
    After i read on any forum to search a relevant solution to your issue, then I can conclude a few points for you:
    1. You should first delete the cache and the data of the app before you uninstall it because most developers do not always clean up after their apps.
    2. The OS also takes up a little bit space and it was not reported as used space.
    3. Whenever you install the app, this also includes the hidden files and folders. So, you may want to try to use a third-party app such as ES File manager that will be able to report the actual space on your phone and will also allow you to remove hidden files and folders. You can get if free through Play Store.

    So, hope this short answer will help you :)

  3. how about doing multiple app deletions at the same time....

    one click at a time is far to time consuming. I'm thinking of just wiping the phone clean and starting over.... back to days of dos operating system
