    Hmmm, touted as the "Worlds cheapest dual camera smartphone" might tell you something. I was able to find two models, an 8 GB and 16 GB versions. The 8 GB has 1 GB RAM and the 16 GB version has 2 GB RAM. Let's assume you have the 8 GB version, this is total combined memory/storage so you will have to deduct the RAM and probably 2GB for the system partition. Then there's the recovery and boot partitions as well. At the end of the day you would see maybe 4 GB of usable storage for apps and files. As you use the phone and apply updates or save messages this number will drop.

    What numbers do you actually see that make you think you are missing storage?

    Looks like you have 5.31 GB used of your total memory and you have 1.57 GB used of your internal storage (apps and user files). Looks right to me.

    counting on my memory card I have about 11 gb what this 5.31 GB is the internal storage, being that it used only 1.57 GB. When I restart the actual values appear, but when I enter it stays the same way.

    The reporting on memory/storage can be confusing. Try these apps for the real story.

    and

    Let me know what they tell you.
