    I have a Huawei Ascend W1 (H883G) and I'm having issues with the storage limitation. My phone is telling me I have 277MB free for internal storage and 2.20GB free for SD storage. Why is it that I can't download a game that is only 47MB? Every time I try to, it tells me that I have reached my limit and I should delete some things.

    I'll answer a question, with a question.

    What's the largest app on your phone - go to Storage Sense & check the size.
    Did you download it @ that size ?
    Are you familiar with the concept of zipped files ?

    You download a compressed (zipped) file which expands to (over) fill the available storage.
    You don't have enough space ! ... go ' ... delete some things ... '

    I'm down to pretty much nothing left on my phone for apps except for the pre-loaded apps. I have The Weather Channel and Facebook left. Is there another way to free up any space without removing these 2 apps? There's no photos, music or videos on the phone's storage. That's all on SD card.

    Clean your Other storage and Temp files. OS isn't mature enough to do it automatically.

    Move your apps to the SDcard (use Storage Sense) ... with 4gb (?) of onboard storage (most phones have 8gb +), there's not much room for anything else, except the OS.
    Install the app, then move it to the SDcard ... and invest in a bigger SDcard !

    The size: 47MB is only the pack size. Once it installed on your device it would tooks more space than that..

    An app or a game can expand to 5 times its download size, in some cases more & in some cases less. Make sure you have sufficient memory before downloading
