    HTC Thunderbolt Spec Descrepencies

    This is my first android device so I'm hoping I'm just doing this wrong. I have Elixir installed on my HTC Thunderbolt and am seeing these specs, which disagree significantly from what is advertised:


    Internal Memory: 2.5 GB Free out of 2.6GB Total (Should be closer to 8GB total, right?)

    Ram: 118MB Free out of 597 MB total (shoudl be closer to 768 MB total, right?)

    Camcorder: Resolution 720x480 (Advertised 720p, and in the camera application you can choose capture resolutions up to 1280x720).

    What's all this about?

    Bloatware is eating up a lot of that 8GB onboard. And I'm sure the OS is using up the dedicated 256MB.

    I'm not really worried about the amount of "free" ram, what I'm concerned is Elixir says there is only 2.6GB of *total* ram.

    First and i know im being a stickler but you should know the discrepancy between internal sd storage and actual RAM. The 256 MB of RAM that is 'missing' is just the prealocated amount that is used by Android. The rest is for your apps and everything else.

    But the internal SD card only showing 2.6 GB seems to be a big error

    Yes, poor use of language on my part. I understand the difference between volatile and nonvolatile storage.

    Agreed, 2.6 total is so far off the mark that either the ram in this thing is bad, the advertised specs are wrong, or elixir is not reporting accurately.

    Any suggestions on how to identify which it is?

    Try another app as suggested.

    I can promise you they didnt lie about the specs, and however possible....I seriously doubt something is wrong with your phone.

    It appears the system info widget only shows the free internal space (2.49GB) and not the total internal space which is what I am interested in.

    I agree with you, but at the same time I'd like to understand what is causing elixir to report 2.6 GB total internal storage. I tried one other application as suggested above, but it appears this one does not report total internal storage (only free). I'm going to hunt around for more.
