    I bought 16GB iPhone 5, capacity is 13.5GB.
    Don't ever recall Apple advertise 13.5GB for storage.

    At least they can upgrade storage for data like movies, books, etc.

    13.5GB out of 16GB is 84% of the advertised space, free for apps.
    8GB out of 16GB is 50% of the advertised space, free for apps.

    Do people realize that hard drive manufacturers use the definition 'One Kilobyte = 1000 bytes" when describing their hard drives' capacities? We all know 1K = 1024 bytes, but the manufacturers use the modified number to make their drives look bigger.

    Imagine if they used the definition "One Kilobyte = 500 bytes" (50%) instead.

    The logic is this - manufacturers inflate their numbers to look better with an uninformed public.

    A couple of examples:
    Are 24" TVs really 24 inches diagonally? No.
    Does a 320GB hard drive really have 320 gigabytes (1KB = 1024 bytes, 1MB=1024KB, 1GB=1024MB) of storage? No.

    Now, the 24" TV might not be 24 inches diagonally, but it's close. Imagine if the TV were advertised as a 24" TV but it only was 12 inches diagonally of viewable space. Would people be upset?

    Apple advertises 16GB of space on an iDevice that has 13.5GB of app-usable space. 13.5 isn't 16 but it's a lot closer to meeting its claim than Samsung's 8GB out of 16GB.
