    After you deduct the OS and apps installed you may only have 8g of space available.

    Nobody ever quotes space remaining when quoting capacity. Not on computers either.

    Yeah, you will only see the "available" memory on the phone. The rest is taken up by the Operating System, pre-installed apps, any additional apps and a portion reserved for the system as well.

    From Verizon Droid RAZR MAXX General Discussions:

    "The Droid Razr MAXX by Motorola is configured with 16GB of internal flash memory. Of this memory, 8GB is available for general storage. An additional 2GB is available for application download and application data. The balance of the memory is reserved for the operating system, user interface, and native applications."
