    The OS and formatting normally takes away ~20+ GB of internal storage.
    32GB - ~10GB
    64GB - ~40GB

    The figures are never that evenly ddistributed On my 64GB Dell 8 Pro ir starts out with about 41GB, the 32GB had about 14GB.

    No, the 32GB model has 14GB free even after all updates are installed.

    I had to err on the safe side.

    Besides, if you look at the tilde before the numbers I posted, that means it's a rough estimate. 14 ~ 10. I didn't have a calculator with me, but I did the best I can.

    Remember, these are numbers that probably don't factor in the 8GB recovery partition. Because of this, the 32GB model actually is a 40GB unit. So if you do your recovery on a USB, then that frees up the additional drive space...

    I read on another forum that that's not necessarily the case with the 32GB. What they did with it is have a separate 8GB recovery chip that's read only on the 32GB, but on the 64gb they actually did it as a partition.

    That's interesting. I'm not pressed for space right now, as I monitor my space well overall on my 64GB model and I immediately bought a 64GB SD card that has all my media on it. I may though try to remove that partition and do a USB recovery stick just to free up the space eventually.
