    My S4 is now saying i have only 1.73 GB of memory left where i should clearly have roughly 5GB and after looking through my applications and storage cannot find what is filling this up. Is there a way of finding what is using it up?thanks in advance.

    It would help if you gave some numbers. How much space is taken up by downloaded apps?

    The OS on the S4 takes up a lot of storage space. About 8GB as I recall.

    Try using DiskUsage, which is free in thePlay Store. That will give you a detailed breakdown of disk usage.

    Screenshot of the settings/storage page may help - or provide numbers as Goodspike stated.

    For example, my storage page shows

    Total space 16GB
    System Memory - 6.28GB
    Applications 2.73GB
    Pictures,videos 251MB
    Audip 0.89MB
    Downloads 25.02MB
    Available space 6.79GB
