  1. Ask ko lng po bakit na ung 4.2 na used memory.kasi konti nalang ma download ko po? Panu po bs burahin system application para ma free ang space.

    • The Galaxy J2 Prime only has 8GB of total memory for everything, including OS and Samsung apps. You can disable some system apps but it could cause problems. Best to get an SD card if you need additional storage.
