    Guys, i was just messing with my phone and noticed I am running low on internal memory. 14% left. I have plenty of room on my SD Card. Think it's a good idea to move my apps to the SD Card? Just wondering if that will effect performamce of the phone. Does moving the apps to the SD Card have any negative effect?

    14% left? How many apps do you have installed? I have 133 installed apps and I still have 5.75 GB of internal memory left.

    Well that's the strange thing. System Panel says I have 14% free in my internal storage. Titanium Backup says I have 6.55gb free. also my Mini Info app says I have 6.5 GB free. I don't understand what the system panel number is?

    You're confusing memory with storage. Take a look at the website for the System Panel app which explains that in the Android OS, it's a good thing not to have a lot of free memory available.
