    Configuration data, app data, contact information, messages, emails(including downloaded attachments), the list goes on. Restore as new and it'll shrink in size but never go away fully.

    could be corrupted data. You need to restore your phone to factory settings and then re-sync everything on itunes.

    my "other" on my 64 GB iPhone 4s is only .68 GB.
