I'm using Sony Xperia L (Non-Rooted, Stock OS) which shows me I have 1.52 GBs of Device Memory. "Apps and Media" are taking up 0.98 GB and ~240MB is remaining free. I don't understand where all that extra memory has gone to.
So what exactly is this Device Memory? I read that it's "the memory where Android installs Apps". That doesn't really answer my question because I'm trying to get a better understanding of the missing space here and I hardly have Apps installed. So does anyone know:
1) What is the location on the Internal Memory that is considered as Device Memory? I mean is it a Folder?
2) How exactly does Android go about calculating that "Apps & Media"
3) Is there any way of seeing the File/Folder contents of Device Memory?
If we go to Settings> Storage we have a section called Device Memory. Here is a screenshot from my phone.
Notice how the space breakup doesn't add up here.
