Default [Q] Internal Storage amount differs from other phone

I just got my refurbished phone today, the internal storage after a format is only 5.22GB the phone I've had said it was 5.43GB total why does this one have less?

Either there is something taking up space that can be deleted on the internal storage, extra bloatware could be there or LG just made a mistake. Either way 200mb isnt bad

At least your refurb didn't come like mine....its got more light leaking through then the ozone layer. But yeah in your case its most likely an LG screw up they fail in all sense of quality control.

Refurb #2 I just got in. Are you sure you want to buy T-Mobile and LG phones?

You had a g2x before or are you comparing this to a different phone. If it's the same phone are you using the exact same rom? Otherwise it could be just different memory vendors and different processes. That could be the reason if your comparing the same phone or not

Lol yeah I guess it's good the screen bleeding on this refurb isn't too bad but it does have a handful of burnt out pixels which annoy me, I was comparing the one I got today with the one I'm sending back, both on stock 2.3.3 when I format the internal memory the one I'm sending back has always had 5.43GB total, replacement has 5.21GB total, (lost a little more space when I wiped it again lol.)
