    Does anyone know what goes into the "other" section of the internal phone storage? It's listed as taking up 5gb, I have no idea what could be taking that up.

    Yeah, as Scorpio said it's the OS. The One lists your storage as the full 32GB and tells you that five is taken up (mine actually says 7.66 right now). By comparison, my 32GB Nexus 7 only says that there's 26GB total, so the six the OS takes up there is just hidden.

    But it couldnt be OS.
    in HTC phones there are 2 different Storage drives: APP STORAGE and PHONE STORAGE
    There are Other sections in both of them. In my HTC One S Other in App Storage takes 3,9 Gb and that is Android OS

    But there is also Other section in Phone Storage and it takes me 3,6 GB - and question is what the f***k is in there!!!???
