I just got my nexus 5, Absolutely love it Only thing which is bothering me is I'm getting 26.2 gb available memory which doesn't make no sense. That's 6 gb less that 32gb -_- is this normal or not? If not what steps shall can I do to recover rest of memory..

Hi,

It's absolutely normal and it's the same thing for all... Take a look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2508292 (at the middle it's explained).

It depends of your data (apps, etc...), so nothing abnormal...

yes, it is the way it is formatted. everything is like that. even your PC hard drive. 1tb hard drive is more like 980gb i think..

931.32

It's nothing to do with formatting. Its just maths as explained later in in the link I provided.

yea, i was going to edit my post to add the math part but i saw others posted that info. I never liked the way hard drives are advertised. confuses people who don't know the math part.

Its just another way to sell less for more.

Its like selling a 200mph supercar, but 1 mile = 1200 metres.

I'd rather buy a 931 GB hdd than a "1 TB" hdd.

Then again.... its really 931 GiB vs 1 TB cause the feckers stole the name too
