Hi @no.gwhfvi

That seems really high to me too. I have a Moto X Pure on 7.0 and Android is 7.94 GB.

Have you tried clearing the Android systems cache yet?

Take a look in your settings to see what is taking up so much internal memory. In Settings, scroll down to Storage and have a look. That might give you some insight as to what is going on.

This is what been reported by others for this phone, my guess is Alexia is eating up some of that and Android is growing bigger with each release

Moto X Pure is at 10.82GB (Android 7.0)

While we are reviewing storage…does your RAM memory show 2.5GB instead of 3GB?

under Settings -> Memory…mine says 2.5GB
even though
About Phone -> Hardware Information -> RAM size…lists it at 3GB

> ROM size…lists it as 32GB as it should
