    Default Storage usage

    With all this talk about the update, I have noticed something funny when I dial *2. The Sprint utility shows I have less than 25% of my app space remaining, but when I click on it and go into the android app manager, it shows I have almost half.

    I thought the Sprint app would just refer back to the manager's numbers... It's one of these numbers correct and one wrong? Is anyone else setting this?

    You should correct the subject of your first posting to "Storage usage". Memory = RAM, not storage space.

    My bad! My mobile posting is always flawed.

    I wish I could help answer your question.... I never use the Sprint tools or Sprint Zone. I would tend to believe the Android native settings app more than the Sprint Zone. One thing for sure- it is certainly confusing seeing *3* different pools of storage!

    Yeah it is! Did HTC ever explain why they broke it up this way?

    I think it is not really an HTC thing- more of an Android thing. A throwback to earlier days of partitioning. It does seem strange to have two internal storage pools. Plus- the Evo LTE is (as far as I know) the only current HTC product with an SD slot... and that has to be mounted separately and shows as another pool of storage.

    I didn't even think about the fact that the EVO is the only current phone with an SD slot. It makes me a little happier to be confused.
