Hi
I've recently updated my phone to lollipop 5.0.1. Chrome was at version 38, and its size was about 12mb on the phone without the data and cache. Today it updated to version 40 and it's 70mb. Is that normal or do android app updates keep the old app too (since it offers to delete updates in app info) ?
Thanks

Unfortunately yes :( The app that comes 'baked-in' with the release is always going to be the smallest, and an upgraded version will be larger. Though when you go from 40 to 41 (for example) the total size won't change because the phone can get rid of 40. But because 38 is built-in it can't ditch it.
