    Default App storage question

    Got the dreaded "Insufficient space" message the other day. Went in and cleared out a couple games I didn't play so it's fine now.

    But when I check under Storage, under App Storage apps are taking up 1.22 GB of space while "Other" is 4.39 GB.

    Is that normal? Is it the OS or something else I'm missing? I never had to check it before so I have no clue. Just seems 5.39 just labled "Other" is kind of odd.

    Hmm, so still a mystery then. I really don't have anything else on my phone.

    I clicked "Make more space" and I had 53 apps to move to SD (internal storage). Let it run and now I have 1.22 GB free. Not sure if I've been lax moving apps to SD or of updates changed something.

    Either way plenty of app storage left now.

    Yes I did the same thing..it's disturbing to me though to think that much space though..over 4GB it's being used by other and we don't know what the other is...

    I suspect "other" is the OS and Sense...
