    Why does system storage take a hell lot of space? it used to take up only 5-8 Gb, now that i have an sdcard and format it on my phone, it takes 21 Gb out of 32 Gb! Why is it so huge? and how do I make it small as possible? I was planning to install some games that i have never tried and dreamed of playing before, pls help.

    All information of my phone will be presented in comments if asked for.

    Members will probably find it easier to begin to answer if you mention what phone. https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=409154

    Are you saying that you formatted the SD card as internal storage?

    To see how the storage in the phone is partitioned, see [Guide] Checking the ACTUAL storage space on an Android device. (The SD card has nothing to do with the system - that's just for data - pictures, music, videos, etc.)
