    The 8GB is the total size of the internal storage.
    The OS and other files take about 5 GB leaving you with only about 3GB for your files and other apps, as you are seeing. 8GB is a very small amount of storage space to start with.

    Get an SD card and use it to hold your media files (documents, photos, music, videos).
    Some apps that use lots of data storage space (camera, maps, GPS navigation, games) will let you store their data on the SD card. See the settings of the individual apps to find out if this is an option for that app.

    Evidently the new firmware needs more space, so it repartitioned storage.

    Yes, the total internal storage the phone is reporting is how much is available to the user. They're not counting the 5 GB taken up by the OS and bloatware.

    So here's the problem: an 8 GB phone will usually only have about 3 GB of available storage for the user, after accounting for the OS and any bloatware. Since modern apps are getting bigger and bigger these days, an 8 GB phone is virtually unusable, unless you're only going to use it for very basic things (like calls and texts). You can try to maximize what little storage you have by following the tips in my guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-warnings.html. But realistically, you may just have to consider getting a new phone with at least 32 GB of internal storage (even 16 GB is probably too little for most people).
