    Hello allan,
    Thank you for posting this article and giving image credit for my website. I am looking forward for this type of link exchange.

  • You are absolutely right about the android memory problem. It can be really frustrating to see that you can not install anymore apps. I had been searching about this problem and came to know about the technique called rooting. Once you root the android device you will have root access to your device and memory problem could get solved. However, at the same time it could also revoke your warranty 🙂

  • Moto e 2nd generation is great at that price range. Really Motorola has working great job in its smartphones.
