My wife's Moto E has about 650mb of free space on the internal storage at the moment. I've moved as much as I can to the SD card and the rest is uninstallable. When I click to update to 5.1, her Moto E says it needs about at least 850mb to download and install the upgrade. She doesn't want me to "play" with her phone, and it is not rooted. Any options?

backup apks using ES explorer to SD card (by copying backups folder).
backup contacts to email account (as well as a local vcf file)
backup entire Whatsapp folder (while restoring, Install apk, copy the old folder back and tehn set up whatsapp)
there are apps to backup texts as well.
Remove SD card.
Reset + Download OTA and install (automatically)
Install apks and restore contacts..

No need to root as well

I'd suggest you uninstall updates of all Google apps and try installing them after you've installed the ota.
