    Use Link to update instead of OTA.

    OTA updates need twice as much space on the device.

    You'd probably get more targeted help if you posted in the Q5 forum, or have moderators move this thread there...
    (this is Armchair here!)

    Hope you get your problem sorted. My Q10's screen went black a short while ago... :-(

    I had this problem with my Q5 too. I believe 8GB of internal flash storage is way too little. Should be 16GB minimum. Use Link to perform updates. And if you use link and it still tells you you need to free up some space, delete most of your apps, move all music, pictures and videos etc., documents etc., to your external storage device and/or cloud storage. Then use Link again to update.
    Then once the update is done, restart, then put re-install the apps you require.

    It doesn't work. Even after a secure wipe, the update demands close to 400 MB free space. The device has reached its limit., sadly though. Same is the case with Z3.
