    Hello, I have a samsung 7S and I was wondering how the storage adds up. I have used about 1gb in docs, images, audio. I use 6.4gb in applications. And the total used is 20.7gb.. that means that 13GB is used by phantom items. Is there a way to get rid of these 13GB of stuff that is not even on the phone anymore.? Thanks for any advice.

    13 gb seems high, but much of that is the os and other "stuff" that Samsung adds...

    Welcome to Android Central! Around 13 GB would not be that unusual for a Samsung phone. About 5 GB is used by the OS, but Samsung usually piles on a lot of other bloatware that takes up a good amount of space. And if your phone is from a carrier, some carriers add even more bloat. Unfortunately, you can't get rid of most bloatware unless you root the phone (which I wouldn't recommend if you're not experienced with it).
