    If I look in the device's storage setting, it shows 8gig total storage, but the rest of the numbers don't add up to 8 gig. Adding up the rest of the categories (pictures, downloads, etc) it's only about 5.4 gig. Even if I include what it lists as available, it's only up for about 6 gig. There seems to be 2 gig missing?
    I tried diskusage app, and it only shows 3.7 gig on the storage card. I would think maybe that means the OS is using the other 4.3 on a separate partition, but diskusage also shows that of that 3.7 that 2.2 of it is "system" and I can't touch it.
    There used to be storage available on this phone for large games and files, but it seems to be gone now. Surely the system doesn't need 6.5 gig of the 8 for this phone?

    Welcome to Android Central! It's possible the OS files aren't included in the storage numbers you were adding up. So if you added 2.2 GB of system files to the 5.4 GB you added up, that's 7.6 GB, which is close to the full 8 GB.
