    Now my "Other" folder has went from 9.2gb to 9.4gb. Anyone figured out what's going on with this?

    I'm not sure what's going on but I'm thinking it has to be a bug. Mine shows 16.88gb in other, like everyone else I only had 3.5gb after a factory reset. As I installed my apps both the apps and other sections showed increasing storage amounts, a 1.15gb game added 1.15gb to apps and 0.9gb to my other. I have searched every file and folder and I cannot find where my 16gb of storage has gone

    I've searched my files too and can't find the 9.4gb. Earlier I cleared my cache and my "other" folder jumped from 9.2gb to 9.4gb right before my eyes. The cache I cleared was around 250mb. It's like the cleared cache went into the "other" folder. It almost has to be a bug because I sure can't find over 9gb in my "other" folder. It simply isn't there.

    I'm going to experiment a little to see how bad the bug is, I'm rolling my phone back to Oos 3.2.8 and I'm going to set my phone up the same and see what my storage says. I've noticed its been weird for me ever since the first nougat update

    Oh it's definately a bug, I'm not sure whether or not storage is actually being used or if its just showing that storage is being used and thats whats being buggy because even after I factory reset and everything I'm still getting gigs of data in the "other" section and that should not happen after a reset

    Maybe it'll be fixed in the next update.

    You just might be some of the lucky ones who are not facing this storage issue

    My "other" folder is 9.4gb. It's true that my phone has 64gb of storage but that's neither here nor there. If your phone had nearly 10gb of storage used by bloatware you'd probably be singing a different tune. So what if the phone has 64gb of storage. Would you want 10gb being used up by some phantom files or whatnot? No.

    My device is 64 GB and came with only 55 GB out of the box, and 4 GB is stolen by the Others folder without the Nougat update.

    I think they're either being sarcastic or there's something seriously wrong with their phone.
