    The question is, is that normal? I am curious why.. For now, I have nothing in my phone, I moved almost everything to my SD card. Could a hard reset fix this?

    Will you could try and let us know, if it is, I guess I will also do a hard reset then.

    I never done hard reset. I do not know what could happen. it might sound silly, but I would hate to lose all my saved games that I am playing right now. lol.. I read that the backup is only saving the apps, not the file content related to the apps.. idk..

    I suspect some of the stuff that used to show up in Other now shows up in System via Storage Sense. Stuff like photo/video Onedrive sync which supposedly can take up a noticeable amount of space. Do you do quite a bit of that?

    I think my situation may be to do with failed app installations. I.e. apps that were not completely installed but their files are still on the phone. I'm thinking of doing a hard reset tomorrow and will update you.

    OUCH!!! I have a 32GB 1520, and I thought 6.86GB was bad, I can imagine the loss of an extra 2GB on the storage of only 16GB...

    Ok so I know it will shrink if I decide to reset. But I will wait for the official release before I do a master test

    WP 8 or 8.1? Hard reset means you have to set everything back up (factory reset)? I wonder how quickly your 3.73GB will increase again? Would be a shame to go through all that trouble just to have the system memory go back up in a week!

    BTW, my WP 8.1 system memory is at 4.14GB on my 16GB 1520.

    The problem is with windows phone 8.1 where when while transferring files I'd your SD card is slow than during transition some data gets stored in system memory for no reason
    If you go to Lumia storage check you will see that all of it is remotest files but you can't delete it
    Wait for a few days for system to clear it on it or only hard reset is the option

    2.1 gigs here. I know that texts can take up room but that would require a lot of picture and text messages to be intact
