Default [Q] More internal storage with custom rom instead of only 10gb?

Hi,

Since yesterday I have LG G2 16 gb but there is only 10gb of internal storage available.
This means LG use 6gb for the stock rom?

When i install a custom,will i also have more memory left instead of only 10gb?

Or is there another way to get more memory?

For the rest i really like the G2.

Thank you so much.

Richard

Based on my esperience on a previous device, you could repartition your device, freeing as much as 1 or 2 more gigabytes.
Custom roms usually need much less storage than stock.
However, this is not a simple task, and if you aren't a Linux guru, you'd better find a very detailed guide for your specific setup.

The 16gb is not rly exactly 16gb i guess its like 14-15gb system partiton 2,1 gb and then still appdata etc the remaining 2gb and something
I wouldnt repartition your g2 since its an risky thing where you can fully brick your phone and you cant really repair it.
The only way to get more space is to use an microsd reader for your phone like the one from meenova. Or you can use cloudstorage but cloud isnt safe in my opinion.with privacy etc.
