How does storage space in our phone is partitioned? How can we access our storage space?

  • You can see partitions and their usage in apps like DiskInfo – Robert Sep 5 '18 at 17:13

Most Android phones have eMMC (flash memory), partitioned in GUID partition table (GPT) just like a PC's hard disk. There are usually less or more 50 partitions on a latest Android phone. OS uses /system while user uses /data mainly. Internal SD card is /data/media. Other partitions are smaller.

If you have a rooted phone, you can use Linux tools (parted, gdisk etc.) to manipulate Android 's partition table. But that's really risky.

To fully access storage space, you need root permissions.
