    As others have said, I believe you just have alot of "cached" information. Emails, address book, etc. I also found out for myself at least, for example, if you started a video download of 1GB and only downloaded half of that, the full 1GB is still accounted for unless you delete the download. Like I also said, some installer packs probably haven't been deleted yet because Make more space always have apps listed that are deleted on mine. Also, internet explorer takes alot of space if you have alot of history.

    Go through each app and setting(like automatic SkyDrive upload) and see if there are pending downloads, long history in IE, or that you've missed some things. If not, maybe the system haven't met the requirements to delete old files yet.

    The store just updated Asphalt 7Heat and my Apps+Games increased by 0.5GB and my System increased by 1.5GB. So that update to an existing game cost me an additional 2GB.

    Same here, my System went from 4.8 to 2.8 and Temp from 1.0 to 0.1. But what really amazed me is my current app list was automatically restored.

    Auto uploading pictures from the camera gave me problems with the "other" storage. I turned that off and it never really increased after that. I believe the Map data files reside it "other" as well.

    I think the 8X has a storage problem OR the dedicated imaging chip may have a caching system.

    I own the 8X and ATIV S use/used both with all the same settings/apps/files and the difference is huge. (and thats not including the ATIV S's micro SD)
