    I did! Tried dialing *#9900# and clearing dump, nothing happened! And I am not willing to do a reset as I have important data, and not willing to gamble.... I recon there should be an app that checks for such hidden "ghost" data!

    Are you talking about the 16GB version? Also, are you including the OS?

    @Belodion may be right. Are you looking at the Storage screens. This is my 32gb Samsung Note 3 without an sd card.

    Ah. OK then. Needs looking in to. If you want to post a screenshot you can do so on the Tapatalk app or AC Forums version, or now also on the Android Central app.
    The Tapatalk uploading is better but you need a separate first time log in for Tapatalk.

    It's hard to know what you are counting but I remember something similar in an old thread and they were able to isolate the 5gb error there.
    I will be counting sheep shortly in London. If this get's missed on this new quickie Q&A forum, it would be worth starting a thread in: Android Central Lounge - Introductions (experienced moderators and ambassadors say hi there), and the S4 forums.
    But keep an eye here.

    Hey guys
    I read through the above posts and I have the same problem with my phone although I have a galaxy s5...
    I have tried dialling the *#9900# code although it says that I have an incorrect mmi or something.
    I have just bought this phone and I am really worried a bought a fake phone or something!!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated guys!
    Thanks
    Ray
