Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5380 Phone memory problem

by graemebf / February 11, 2013 5:22 AM PST

The tiny 190Mb phone built in memory is causing major problems it fills up. I try and put all the Apps onto the external memory but system blocks some.
Is there any way to solve this?
There's some Samsung Apps I don't want but can't delete?
Is there a way to delete these?
Can I reduce the phone's memory usage?

Galaxy Ace GT-S5380 Memory

It's a piece of terrible design then, I've so much space on the SD Card I want to use and the phone memory is full of Apps I don't want, can't get rid of as they're locked and those I do want are often unusable as there's no memory for them to use. Read Fruitcake for the system not Gingerbread or whatever daft name they've picked.

I've used the native clear app data feature since about 2008 (Android beta days.)
