        Hi Shubham

        I am using a rooted android phone, after root I mange my phone according to me like remove all bloatware app and move app from internal storage to SD card like Facebook, Whatsapp etc. And all app are working well on my phone, these apps need root permission like task manager app, cash cleaner app etc. and after root I take back of whole phone via custom recovery like TWRP recovery.

        I am giving you just two tips first one don’t install any custom Rom and install a good antivirus on your android phone like ESET nod32.

    This info is much useful.
    I am using Micromax Unite 2. Recently i have got Lollipop update and i made it. Though my phone internal memory is 8 GB, user availability is 1 GB alone. Other 7 GB is partitioned as Internal SD Card. So after Lollipop i don’t have any more memory on my phone in that 1GB.

    Please suggest how can i increase/resolve memory problem.
