Android: Installed Package Size is Larger Than Package Size?
I'm trying to package my Android to see how big the file size is. Apparently I managed to get it down to roughly 52mb when it is cooked. But when I tried to install it to my phone (using the "Install_MyProject_Development-armv7-es2.bat" file), it goes up to 126mb. Is this normal? If not, how can I reduce this?
The project is created with C++ mode, 3rd Person template, Mobile / Tablet, Scalable 3D or 2D, with No Starter Content.
Here is some documentation you can follow to reduce the APK packaging size for your game.

Since you followed the documentation for reducing the Apk size, I'm sure you set Apk compression enabled, once your App is installed in any phone the files are uncompressed that's why it become big again. You only have to worry about the Apk size you need to publish on Google Play always smaller than 50mb. So the answer is, yes, tha'ts normal.
