    That good if it fixed in GDR2 just have to wait till it released for the other devices, my other storage has a mind of it own.

    Wow, I didn't see this. This sounds great, hopefully it does fix everything. Then I would consider getting a 925!

    I don't know my girlfriend has an 8S and she says it's a bit better. Will have to wait for more people to speak up.

    Hopefully it fixes it. On my 1020 I've already used 2.1 GB of "other".

    I have around 3GB on my 16GB 8X. I think that's probably about right as I have a lot of stuff. Only about 4GB of space left.

    My feeling is that GDR2 is universal but the Amber update fixes the Other Storage issue!!!!

    relax. there is an easy way to determine your other storage. first of all, the other storage contains Map Data, SMS, Email, pictures and app install packages, keyboard suggestions,
    tell me language packs etc..
    You need to ask yourself those questions:
    How much MapData do I have installed?
    Depends on what Maps you downloaded 45Mb-5 Gb is possible.
    Have I Integrated Facebook?
    This Is something many People tend to forget, all those Facebook picture albums are beeing saved onto the phone! (500 Mb, ~130+ pictures on my phone)
    Skydrive sync?
    Srsly I dont know if this bug has been fixed. If not => Skydrive folder sawp trick and resync.

    Sum up all those Megs and Gigs and compare it to your other storage (keep in mind the system uses about 465 Mb of Other storage by default.)
    the size should be about the same size 200+ Mb is okay.

    People tend to overreact is there own fault sometimes. (Keep in mind Im talking about post GDR2)

    It isn't as bad as in GDR1, it's sort of fixed but it needs alot more tweaking.

    in the thread: "Other" storage getting out of control.
    I hope it works for you.

    Question: if you connect your phone to your computer via USB, what do you see? Doesn't it appear as an extra device? If Yes, then you should be able to move through the different file folders and delete whatever is in Other Storage folder, correct? Although, you may have to change the folder settings to display "Hidden" or "System" folders in order to see the Other Storage Folder. I'm curious to know because I am very close to pulling the trigger on a Lumia 928 purchase. Good Luck & Thanks.
