Hi everyone,

I just bought the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus model GT-S7500L. I thought this model has 3GB storage capacity, but when connected to the PC, using windows explorer, it shows the total capcity is 1.83GB.

From the Samsung Kies software, it also shows the total capcity is 1.83GB. What happened to the 3GB storage space?

On your Windows Explorer or Samsung Kies software what does it shows for your total storage capcity?

The Galace Ace Plus model I got is GT-S7500L, do you know what is the difference between this model and the GT-S7500 (without the L). Any hardware differences such as memory storage space?

Some of the space is lost to formatting - just like on your PC - and somewhere close between 1GB and 1.5GB is used up by Android. The fact you have 1.83GB available is actually pretty good.

Don't know about your phone but if it has an SD slot, it might be worth getting a decent size SD card for it.
