    Hello
    I have a question about how much space does the OS take and how much space is reserved for apps...50-60? Or the entire storage less android system can be used ?

    Well, that depends. Do you have the 16GB or 32GB version? The OS should take up four to six GB on average, though it can be more or less depending on various factors. And then the storage space taken up by apps will depend upon the size of individual apps. You can see most of this information in the Storage section of the Settings, which lets you know what memory is being taken up by which apps and system processes.

    I think as the above post says, on most devices not just HTC I think the average amount of space the actual phone software and drivers etc is around the 6GB mark.

    I guess this poses the question that should a phones memory size be actually quoted as 16 or 32 when your really actually getting 6GB less than that?
