Also, you have about 7% in reporting difference from GB to billion bytes. I can't duplicate all the prior discussions but I've yet to see any "pulling a fast one" here.
I just bought a 16G Samsung Galaxy Note II, and upon viewing the storage capacity in the settings it shows:
Total space = 10.97G
Applications = 367MB
Pictures, Videos = 17.99MB
Audio = 20.00KB
Miscellaneous = 36.73MB
Available space = 10.36GB
Total space = 3.63GB
Available space = 3.62GB
The SD card was bought as an extra.
If I'm reading this information correctly then there is 5.64GB of internal storage space unaccounted for.
Can someone tell me if the system is actually using this much space or has Samsung pulled a fast one?
At this point you as a consumer need to call it in (1800SAMSUNG) and if they can't give you a good explanation then you do what most consumers do (return it.)
From my view I can dive in and look around with the tool I noted. But then again I've been programming for a long time.
-> I don't see any issue on any Samsung Android so far. I do see consumers that are looking for reasons why the numbers don't add up. But without diving into the system, and showing it's OK, how else to show the answer?
Wish I had a graphic to help out here.
