Phone error or user error? (No full storage on new phone)


I just bought an iPhone 5C on Saturday, storage is supposed to be 8GB. I just checked my storage and I have used 4.6GB, and only have 780MB left. Is this a phone defect, or something I've done wrong?

The phone has 8gb total. Some of that is used for the Operating System. Having 4.6gb left is normal.

Wow...so 3.4GB of my storage is used up before I even add anything? 😞 Thanks for the help

Unfortunately so. It's the same for all phones. Check my iPhone out 😞 it's a 16gb and I have 12.7gb left.
