With clean sweep you should be fine, only uninstall apps that you do not use :) Keep the essential!

It really is hard to say what is heroes saga to some is considered essential.

Decide on the ones that you will not use ever and go to applications manager to delete them completely.

I suggest keeping google play as you cannot reinstall the icon. It is there in case you want to add games or apps in the future (like farm hero saga)

You have to go into the Play Store, an app on your phone, if you want to download and install any old apps or any apps at all

Your only options at this point is to either use this link from your phone:

And click on "download" and after it downloads, you will be able to install it.

Otherwise, you must factory reset your phone. All your data, pictures, contacts, everything will be deleted on your phone and reset to when your first bought it essentially.

Widgets are basically shortcuts to an app. You can place them on your homescreen for easier access to apps or functions on your phone. To use widgets, press and hold on one, the widget will automatically place itself on your homescreen. If there's no room, you'll have to add another homescreen panel or it may create one for you automatically.

If you find you're running out of storage space, you may want to invest in a microSD memory/storage card to store photos and music without overloading your phones' main storage. Removing the back cover, the microSD card tray is located next to the SIM card tray. A class 10, 16 or 32 GB microSD card should work well.
