    Mobile phone without bloatware 3rd Sep 17 at 12:41 PM
    I've got an LG K3 which only has 8gb storage.
    I like the size of the phone which is about the same as the original moto g.
    Despite being 4 years older I actually preferred the moto g it had a better screen and less bloatware.
    On the LG most of the storage is full, often to install an app i have to delete another one or clear cache.
    Should i go back to moto who have just released a moto c model that looks good and i assume is a stock android phone?
    Or are there any other suitable phones maybe the nokia 3, samsung a3 or iphone 5s?

    The Moto G5 S has 32gb built in storage. Can recommend it as both my wife and I have them.

    Have you tried removing the bloatware? I have a Vodafone SU6 and you can (surprisingly) remove almost all bloatware without rooting. The few apps you can't remove can be easily disabled.

    I'm presuming you wouldn't be interested in rooting? (if possible on that phone)
