    I'm on the verge of giving up with this phone, the storage is such an issue. I know it doesn't have a lot available, and putting a big SD card in doesn't really help as not many types of file can be stored on it, but even after deleting files I still don't have space free, and the numbers don't add up. It's reached the point where I can't even use my browser as it just closes itself.

    Numbers are as follows:
    total space - 8gb
    used - 7.24gb

    android OS - 3gb

    Internal storage: 4.23gb used of 5gb

    apps - 2.33gb
    images - 3.36mb
    videos - 8kb
    audio - 216kb
    other - 37.64mb
    cached data - 289mb

    There is no way that adds up to 4.23gb! I'm fairly sure I deleted a bunch of stuff and it's made no difference at all... is there some kind of 'trash' folder I need to find and empty? Help before I give up and buy a used iphone (which I really would rather not do...)
