hi guys,
i bought this new one phone and i am very disappointed about a strange issue here :
my phone is supposed to have 8GB INTERNAL STORAGE and 768 MB RAM but mine has (from system info) 4 GB INTERNAL STORAGE and 498 MB RAM, also on the box is written 8GB.
The firmware is up to date with Gingerbread 2.3.6 (probably updated from the seller) and i can't find anything about this issue on the net or about a new limited S advance like this.
I wrote also to samsumg and the seller but no response until now.
Also Samsung Kies detect internal storage as 4 GB .
Is it possible ?? Any advice ??
Thank you so much.

System, system, system
Data is taken up by system apps, and some RAM is reserved for system processes

Thanks for the response,
so you mean that a part of ram is system reserved (and this is reasonable) but if the system take also 50 % of the declared storage seems to be very strange.
Considering that i have 4 GB and 2 GB ROM where is the rest ?
I would like to hear another S advance owner.
So i have in real life 7,8 GB - 1.95 GB ROM is 5.9 GB remaining storage but i have only 3.9 GB effective mass storage, i can't find the other two.
Thanks again for your time.
Bye

Ok, let's say that i figured it out as follows :

USB mass storage 4 GB - 3.91 GB real
ROM memory 2 GB - 1.95 GB real
SYSTEM/USER storage 2 GB - 1.95 GB real
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TOTAL 8 GB - 7.81 GB real

so 8000 MB / 1024 = 7.81 GB

it is like buying a car with 8 seats but 2 can't be accessed due to engine space, 2 seats are only for the owner and his wife and the remaining seats are for the rest of the family.

The producers make always things more complex.


Thank you.

As above:

for a galaxy s advance of 8gb

USB mass storage 4 GB - 3.91 GB real
ROM memory 2 GB - 1.95 GB real
SYSTEM/USER storage 2 GB - 1.95 GB real

TOTAL 8 GB - 7.81 GB real

because 8000 MB / 1024 = 7.81 GB

-----------------------------------------------------------------

for a galaxy s advance of 16gb i figured it out as follow

USB mass storage 12 GB/1048 - 11.45 Gb real (here it might shows 11.5 Gb)
ROM memory 2 GB - 1.90 GB real
SYSTEM/USER storage 2 GB - 1.90 GB real
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TOTAL 16 GB - 15.26 GB real

Notice that i divided the first galaxy with 1024 bit and the second with 1048 bit, the reason is that each producer use a different method of calculation with a considerable difference from storage to storage.

Also consider that the GingerBread system has its internal memory divided as system/user partition and a usb mass storage partition.
I know that if you try a ICSandwich system this method is no longer used so you will have only one partition instead of two

please go to Settings - Applications - Manage applications and tell me how much memory is displayed under every tab (Downloads/All/SdStorage/active) and after this go to Info and tell me what is there (Storage Memory / System Memory).

RAM?
I have the same problem.
What about RAM? Where is the rest of it? I have only 515 RAM? See the attached picture.
And these two are the same thing.
ROM memory 2 GB - 1.95 GB real
SYSTEM/USER storage 2 GB - 1.95 GB real
