    I need some expertise on a Phone question that is rattling my brain :

    I have a 32 GB Samsung S7 Active

    well, it's showing under my Device maintenance ( Storage ) is showing 31.8 GB is used , BUT ......... the total of all my Videos , Pictures and Documents only shows roughly 8 GB used ( as a Total )

    Where is the other 24 GB being used ?

    I know the Apps I use can't Total 24 GB

    Is there a way I can see where every GB is allocated on my phone ?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    The system (OS) takes up some of that storage, and so do apps and cached app data.

    When I look at storage stats in my Galaxy S9 Plus, I see Documents, Images, Audio, Videos and Apps. It also tells me that there's 682 MB of "unnecessary data," which I'm assuming is cached app data that I can live without.

    Try clearing app cache and look at the statistics again.
