    Yup I already have hard reset phone twice since I bought it less than 2 months ago @Microsoft cba to fix it...

    Cant do anything about it atm... Try deleting internet cache and cookies etc... and temp files.

    Hard reset is it.
    With soft reset and delete temporary files in storage check or phone storage and with IE delete history you get rid of a few more MB but that's it, and you'll never get rid more than that and not make much of a dent in 2.5GB -you'd be lucky to remove even 100 MB after all is done without a factory reset.

    Temp files delete works best with settings Storage Check not Lumia Storage Check for some reason but even if it's 10MB
    it's only 10MB and that won't make a dent in your other. In 20 min it could be back with 15MB more.
    Windows 8.1 is rumored to enable app storage on SD.

    Until they release a decent phone with SD support all your photo's, videos, pics all go to the other folder on phones with no SD support. It's like VM utilizing ram.
