Hi everyone I need help figuring out why my phone says that I have used 88% of my memory even though I don't have music saved on my phone and only have only 5 gigs Max of large files?! :banghead:

Check out the Settings->Storage screen to see where all the storage is being used, maybe you have too many apps? If it is files, I would download ES File Explorer, it has some great utilities for finding and cleaning up your storage.

Use the app DiskUsage.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...iskusage&hl=en

It will tell you exactly where all your big files are.
