Online posts with the keywords “Android operation on galaxy s23 ultra using 60 gb of storage” immediately draw attention.
The estimated 60 GB amount is more than twice as much as Windows 11’s almost 25 GB use. Keep in mind that the desktop operating system is far more complicated. Why? Is the data true and correct?
Decipher the issue that has many Galaxy S23 customers perplexed: why does a 512 GB Galaxy S23 phone running the Android operating system consume around 60 GB?
The information was found by users who discovered that Galaxy S23 Ultra models with greater RAM had even bigger system file sizes. But given that the system size ought to be about the same regardless of how much internal memory the phone has, it is obviously unrealistic. In actuality, it wasn’t the case, and the entire misunderstanding sprang from a false article in Samsung’s system settings and the Android operating system’s lower size than previously thought.
People need to know one thing about hosting in general before I explain the causes of all this misunderstanding. Although a 256 GB storage device holds 256,000,000,000 bytes, 1 GB really equals 1,073,741,824 bytes when counting it in binary (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024,…), hence in reality it only works out to be roughly 238.4 GB.
Information on the operating system’s system memory for the Galaxy S23 series.
The Twitter user @Golden Reviewer explains this by demonstrating the difference that accounts for why users frequently “lose” roughly 7% of their storage capacity. Because of this, 128 GB of memory only has roughly 119 GB of useable space, compared to 238 GB for 256 GB, 494 GB for 512 GB, and 930 GB for 1 TB.
The issue is that, while having nothing to do with OS size, this “loss” is incorrectly factored into the device’s “system memory” in Samsung’s memory report. Because of this, it is said that the 1 TB Galaxy has more system memory than the 512 GB Galaxy, which is comparable to the 256 GB Galaxy of the same phone series.
Actually, the Galaxy S23 Series’ Android operating system takes up about 20 GB.
In reality, desktop operating systems accurately display storage capacity. For example, a 512 GB desktop or laptop will appropriately display on a Windows or Mac system that there will only be 494.38 GB of free space available for use.
Unfortunately, mobile operating systems will falsely claim that the user has adequate 512 GB. The Galaxy S23 series utilizes about 20GB of storage for the Android operating system, which is still a lot but not as much as 60GB.
