    I have a staggering 9.21GB of Other storage, even though the biggest part of the iPhone's storage is apparently Messages with 500MB.

    I feel like this might be solved elsewhere but I can't find anyone giving a concrete resolution.

    Anyone have any advice, before I make a radical decision to do a restore as new?

    Thanks! Seb

    most likely it's cached data. check media heavy apps and reinstall

    eg: facebook, flipboard, etc

    Connect to iTunes and sync. It might be data that didn't transfer properly.

    Do you have a lot of email accounts? Do your friends like to send stupid photos, vids, etc in email chains? I had an insane amount of email on my device until I changed some settings.
