Can anyone help? I have a 16 GB nexus 5 running slim kat. My phone reports to me that it has 3.9 GB free memory. Where has all the space gone? In es my sdcard is only about 3 GB. I only have about 30 apps. From what I understand I skiing have started with about 12gb... I feel I should have more space.. Is it telling me wrong.? Where did all the space go?

It depends on the apps. Can you put screen shots?
If you have games such as real racing or others they download a big change of data.
Also, check for Nandroid backups. Have just one and that put somewhere on your PC. Although restoring a nexus phone is easy as pie.

Thanks. I'm still a little confused as to where all my space is going. Even after clean flash/factory reset I don't gain much storage back. Doesn't seem to be reporting properly..am I wrong?
