    I started downloading apps and for some reason the total amount of space taken did not coincide with space taken by all of my files and apps in the internal storage. I started to worry because the storage kept growing for no reason. Therefore, I decided to do a factory reset. At first everything seemed okay, only 1.33 GB of total storage was taken. However, after I turned my phone off and on again, it said that a total of 3.33 GB of total storage was taken, and I still have no idea what is taking it, the apps only take 1.39 GB.

    Edit: I performed a factory reset again, and from what I can tell the updates are the culprit. Whenever I go update an app, the total space taken is always more than double of what the update is. I don't know if this is a hardware issue or a software one because I can't seem to figure out where all the memory is going.

    Clearing the partition didn't clear up much space for me .
