Here's a snapshot of the memory breakdown from Android Central.
So to answer your question, you only get 2GB internal to play with for apps, 10GB for music/pictures/etc.. and the remainder is for updates and such as I recall.
fireguy_6364 is right i was just wondering what was the size of the app storage partition in the EVO 4g lte? I assumed by now that the mail client in the OG EVO was fixed not to eat memory, i was just using it as an example. If it is the complete volume using ICS new method then that would be great. However if it is the old way where everything is partitioned and a fixed size then it is an issue. I am not a huge picture taker so I would rather have more room internally for apps than data, besides that is what the sd card is for. I have searched it and the ONE X seems to have 2GB partition for apps. So after Sprint puts there none removable apps on there who knows what we as users will be left with. I guess I will find out on the 18th.
i think boiled down his question was asking how much space on the new evo LTE will be for apps and such even though internal memory is 16gb.
this discussion is diluted a bit.. what EXACTLY is your concern here? whatever issue you are facing with the original EVO (memory issues?) most likely have been addressed in later firmware revisions and now with ICS you should not have any problems with memory. I currently have an evo 3D (had the original evo also) and i have several mail clients and quite a bit of apps (no live wallpapers as that consumes memory and battery) and have no issues with memory management.
IF you can be a bite more detailed in what you are asking, I may be able to help answer your issue and//or even help you with the current issue you are facing at the moment.
I do not work for sprint but have quite a bit of experience in the EVO line.
actually now that i think of it this was answered in another thread/forum by i believe wingland a while back on this same subject..for the life of me i cant remember where to look and how far back though.
Well that would be bullcrap if it does. That was the first thing I looked at with getting into a new phone. What's the point of having available storage if you can't store what you want on it??? Plus...you're getting 25GB of cloud storage from dropbox for any photos, docs and music, so...?
The only problem with the move to sdcard game is that it still uses internal app storage just not as much. It does not make sense for a phone with 16GB of internal storage to only have 2GB of app storage partition. I was asking the question about the EVO LTE because if you do a goggle search of the ONE X you will see that some are saying it only has 2GB of app storage partition. So you can still get the low space warning when you have 10GB of free internal space.
