Hello everyone. I would really appreciate some help in understanding storage capacity of my Samsung Note 8 device. Recently i reached the maximum storage of 64 GB in my device and after moving some videos in the memory card that i put in, i still cant understand why my phone total storage does not match up with the storage acquired by apps and everything else  thats using phone memory.  Simply the math doesn't add up. Would appreciate any help and thanks on advance

I understand but still i cant believe that system OS can take one third of the total phone memory, i dont know if i am being clear enough but when i calculate numbers my total phone memory according to user data is around 20 GB at max, so i keep wondering what is using the rest...

The "system" on my s22 ultra takes up nearly 51 GB.
