    My internal SD card, in my notice G5, is showing that it using 52.15gb of the 59.46gb available. However, after opening it and viewing which categories take up the most space, the total storage used only adds up to about 15gb! I'm not sure whether this is a problem with the SD card or with the OS, and I will be glad if you can give me some feedback as to what to do to resolve this.

    Unless the phone is rooted, there are a lot of places that don't show up in the list, so you can't just add the categories up.

    Well any ideas as to what it could be? I cleared my Spotify downloads which gave about an extra 20 gigs of storage, but I've also got stuff like audiobooks downloaded. Could that be it? I don't really want to root my device for this.

    Rooting doesn't give you more space,it takes a little space. Add an SD card, and put all your media files on the card (and change the place your media apps look for their files).

    I already have an SD card, that's where the problem is.

    You have ab "internal SD card, which isn't a card, it's just a place in the internal storage that's designated "internal SD:. Put an external SD card in the phone.

    (If you have one, and it's installed as "adoptive storage", you'll have to convert it to "portable storage", get a larger external card, copy everything from the smaller card to the larger one, then put the larger one into the phone and not format it - it should stay as portable storage.)
