    So, I was thinking back over the threads on phone storage. I have an 820 on AT&T (so it's 8gb built-in) with a 16gb SD card. I went Settings>Phone Storage and tapped on the progress bars for "phone" and "SD card" which show how much storage is used, and got a page detailing how the storage is used on each of the two storage locations. Like, for instance, on my phone's internal storage I discovered that I have 116.39mb in apps, 1.70gb of system, and 597.53mb of other (with 0 bytes of music + videos and pictures) leaving me 5.01gb free. I got a similar page for the SD card.

    I didn't know you could do that.

    Yup, it's the same values you get when you plug in to your PC and see the graph across the bottom of the application. Nice that it's on the phone, too.

    Yeah, I just never noticed you could do it on the phone, too. That's handy. :)
