    Today, I bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 with 32 GB because the 64 GB was not available. Under Settings -> Storage, is says that out of 32 GB, Miscellaneous files take up 8.55 GB. (Applications are 2.33GB, and everything else is less than 1GB.) When I click on Miscellaneous files, I can only delete a couple KB, which doesn't scratch the surface of these Miscellaneous files. What can I do to free up space on my phone? I deleted or disabled as many apps as I could that came with my phone. I had a 64 GB SD card in my old phone that held about 30GB of pictures and videos. I am very worried about filling the memory on this up, and I am extremely disappointed that I only have 20 GB of free memory, not 32 GB like the Verizon sales rep told me. I can switch out my phone in the next 14 days, but it is not easy for me to go very long without my phone. Any suggestions?

    'Miscellaneous' might include the OS. On all devices, a substantial part of the total internal storage is occupied by the OS and other basic stuff.
