I have 33 updates, including a Republic update pending, but phone won’t update, saying I need to uninstall some apps to make room. It’s been just a bit over three years. Is it time to replace?
Not necessarily. As long as the phone works well otherwise, I would recommend uninstalling apps that your don’t or rarely ever use. You could also reset the phone.
Most likely, but not necessarily.
It is very hard for anyone reading this to envision which device you are wanting to retire.
Give us some detail and we will be happy to assess your options.
It’s a Moto X, first gen.
The Moto X 1st. Gen was a great phone, but it is certainly showing it’s age.
As @mb2x suggested, there are some housekeeping/maintenance options that could easily help you along, but if performance is a consideration on your mobiile device(s) or a priority, then you probably want to start shopping/researching devices that meet those requirements.
btw, I always have 25-30 apps that want to update, I just don’t need the update, so I decline it.
Well, I looked at the Moto Z Play, and the Moto X Pure. I have apps for genealogy, general household management, KIndle app, fitness app, etc., along with the usual Google stuff, calendar, gmail.
Well, yes, I doubt I need the updates. Perhaps I’ll get rid of a few apps and keep it for a while. I do like the phone, but am not adverse to replacing it when needed.
Those are 3.0 phones and will require you to relinquish your 1.0/2.0 plan, if you are not aware.
It’s a give -and-take in my opinion. Feel free to discuss your options ,or inquire the community if other questions avail themselves.
Thanks so much for the input. Yes, I’m aware I’ll lose the great plan I have now, but Republic plans are still wayyyy better than what I had with Verizon a few years ago! I don’t need to make a decision until my next research trip in winter.
