Re: What's the difference between the U's phone memory and the internal storage?

this is intriguing, I would say it has 4GB for the user to stored anything and the other 4GB are divided between OS and perhaps app space.

So, what you're trying to say is the 2 GB system memory is for the OS and the 2 GB phone memory is for apps?

Re: What's the difference between the U's phone memory and the internal storage?

that'll be great but you can wait for confirmation from Johan, but if you check the link

http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/products/phones/xperia-u/specifications/

Memory

  • Internal phone storage: 8GB (up to 4GB user-accessible memory)
  • RAM: 512 MB

it will add up 4GB for music and pictures and the other 4GB subdivided 2GB for Android and 2GB for apps


System memory 2 GB

Phone memory 2 GB

Internal storage 4 GB

Re: What's the difference between the U's phone memory and the internal storage?

I read this from xperiablog.net regarding Xperia U's memory:

"The Sony Xperia U only has 8GB of in-built flash storage and no micro-SD memory card slot. Only 6GB of this is user accessible with 2GB of this allocated to phone memory for apps, data and games and the balance for media."

http://www.xperiablog.net/2012/03/06/xperia-u-our-hands-on-impressions/

According to this, U has 6 GB of user accessible memory, where 4 GB is the internal storage where user data is stored and the 2 GB is the phone memory where only apps and apps data can be stored. I do not know if this is true but it sounds probable.

I cannot mark your reply as the correct answer yet, though. We need the confirmation. :smileyhappy:
