However, the lollipop update has brought a few issues along with itself. A lot of users have been reporting loss of available storage space in the device after upgrading their device to Android 5.0 lollipop. Out of 8 GB internal storage, only 1.3 GB now seems to be available for the user.

Since this is an official update from HTC, such an issue is something totally unexpected. With only 1.3 GB available out of 8 GB internal storage, users are forced to get rid of important apps and personal data which was already stored on the internal storage.

Another issue that the users are facing is of inability to move apps to the SD card. Unlike earlier, only few of the apps are now getting moved to the SD card and actually many of them are not even getting transferred completely.

We tried to reach HTC for the issue but didn’t get any reply. 

So, if you are an HTC Desire 816 user and facing these issues, show your response by re twitting the above embedded tweet.

Also share the article as much as possible so that we can draw the attention of HTC regarding this issue.
