Edited:- settings says USB stored is 1.70gb (1.67gb free) and device memory is 0.98GB.
You certainly are.....I mean confused
Firstly, the 512mB is RAM!!!
Like this is the Random Access Memory which the CPU uses to execute the apps or programs.....
It is not used for Storage.....and it changes all the time.....actually, you will find this phone only has 350mB for processing apps.....
The Graphics Processor uses about 100mB, and the Android System + Samsung Tw users the rest.
Your SD card is external storage....like a USB hard-drive attached to a PC.
Our phone also has 2 Internal Memory/Storage...seperate from RAM......
internal Device memory on the Chip like Motherboard .....1G
and what Samsung call USB storage or Internal SD...1.7G
Apps are installed either to Internal Phone Storage or External SD.....if you choose to move apps there!!!!
You can use App2SD to achieve this during installation or move apps manually in settings/applications/manage apps......
Apps cannot be moved to Internal USB/SD....
this is intended for data and pics. etc.....
Hope this does not confuse further!!!!
I will help more if required
