BlackBerry® Z10

My Carrier: Cosmote


In the system, settings of my Z10 i see the following:

Total Storage 16 GB, Free 11.2 GB

Total Memory 2 GB, Free Memory 1.1 GB

Can someone tell me what exactly this means?

I understand that the storage is where my camera pictures, videos, music etc. are stored.

When I downlowd an application or a game, where is it stored? is it the Memory? If yes, as it is only 1.1 GB left, can I change where these apps are stored ?

Thank you

When you download an app, it is stored within the 16gb of storage space.

 You can't change where the apps are stored.


If you look at your Settings > Storage and Access > Device Storage Details, the "other data" contains the browser cache, cookies, and installation files for applications, also any data that is used for these applications (cache, settings, etc.) and the OS files.
