This article belongs to people those are suffering from low internal memory problem, i personally had this issue on my Samsung Galaxy S, which was my first Android phone with ver.2.2 Froyo in Feb 2011. There are lots of apps available in Play store requires huge amount of space which generally Non Rooted phones don't have, so try this working method to use your external memory for large size apps installation and start living tension free.
Now don't uninstall existing apps to install and test new large size apps & games on your Non Rooted Android phones internal memory, start installing every app on your memory card without rooting which means indirectly doesn’t void your Phone's Warranty. If you still want to Root your Android Phone then its totally your choice.
