[Q] Android OS takes 7GB? What is going on with X Play

I've got my wife's X Play XT1625 running 6.0.1. I would expect maybe ~3GB reserved for system partition out of 16Gb, for such a barebones (clean) android rom. But on X Play, its whole 7 GB, leaving only about 9GB for user. Is this normal? Is this with everyphone or just mine?

Is it possible to reclaim more of that space? (root, custom rom?) Have anyone tried that?
