    After updating my Lumia 620 to GDR3, i was very shocked because prior to the update, my phone's free storage is 2GB+ (prior to the update), now it's free storage is just some 38KB. So I decided to uninstall some games and the free storage is now at 38.95MB.

    according to Lumia Storage Checker (screenshot) , this is the content of my phone:::
    Apps - 1.8 GB
    Maps - 30 MB
    Temporary files - 2 GB
    Media and files - 3 GB
    Free space - 48 KB
    System - 2 GB
    Other - 941 MB


    looking at the Media and files, that's 2 GB, i don't have media and files stored on my phone, they're all in my microSD.

    -----------



    According to my phone storage (screenshot) this is the contents of my phone:::
    apps+games - 2.36 GB
    music+videos - 0 bytes
    pictures - 1.96 MB
    documents - 0 bytes
    maps - 32.92 MB
    email+messaging - 90.38 MB
    system - 4.43 GB
    temporary files - 291.96 MB


    looking at the system, it's 4.43 GB, that's supposed to be 2 GB +, right? Free space is now at 38.95 MB since i uninstalled some games.

    Anyone experiencing the same? Have you fixed this issue?

    I thought so too. But, no, my Lumia 720 still has 3.2 GB tied up in Other Storage. :(
