    I'm assuming it's an app but I went as far as to get a SD card and move most of my apps there. A few days ago I had 3gb free but today I had only 50mb.

    Are there any apps that can help me see exactly what apps are using how much memory? I mean when I go to the storage option in my settings, I can see how big the apps are but is there a way to find out what could be contributing to this?

    Apps create cache files that can be 100s MB.

    Running on less than 10% is probably not wise.

    Under Device Maintenance Storage 3 dots - Storage Settings is one view. The other, Apps 3 dot Sort by size.

    Facebook is a big culprit. Those videos constantly running when you open the app.

    Thank you guys. I'm beyond confused. I uninstalled a few apps I don't really use, couldn't have even been 1gb worth of apps and restarted my phone (all earlier today after making this thread). I just went to Storage settings and now have 17.5gb free.

    Spotify can have really big cache sometimes.

    Google photos is another hog of storage, cache and data.
