    After doing everything I can do:

    •Removing Apps and other things by meticulously going through everything Manually AND doing it via the automatic Offloading option

    •Removing pictures and videos after saving them elsewhere (I only have about 50 pictures on my phone now, no videos)

    •Turning the Offline mode off on spotify, which in essence removes hundreds of songs that’ve been downloaded to play offline

    •Connecting the phone up to itunes on a PC (which i’ve been told may help offload unused data sometimes)

    •Doing the Clear Cache trick with the Home + Off button

    •Turned the phone off and on for good measure

    Can someone PLEASE help me understand what the “Other” thing in the pic below could be that is taking up 20gb worth of space. It can’t possibly be mandatory things needed for the phones’s OS / Background to function because that’s ridiculous.. I’ve paid for 32gb of space, so I want 32gb of space


    I’m just losing my mind with the same “Storage Almost Full” pop up appearing over and over and over and over again when i do something as simple as take one picture or add a single song to the phone

    I’ve tried about a dozen of those guides, most of them just tell you how to see the percentage of space it’s taking up - and any other info is always something i’ve already tried

    My friend has the same model of phone with about twice has many apps and pictures taking up normal storage space, but her “Other” only takes up about 3gb.

    If I removed all the apps and pictures left on my phone, i’d just have 20gb of space being taken up by ‘something’

    Have you considered a full reset of your phone?
