According to the specs, the Moto G offered by KOODO has 8 gigs of internal memory but according to the internal storage function of the settings there is only 5.5gb, in total (not 5.5 remaining out of 8gb). Is there other memory hidden elsewhere or do I have a malfunction?

All smartphones advertise the storage size as the complete storage but the Operating System takes up a portion of that advertised storage. This is completely normal & like I said done with every single smartphone from every company running every OS.

Thanks, Paul.

I did eventually find reference to this issue elsewhere but it was only by accident and replies were not nearly as polite as yours. I hope other customers will be spared that with the convenience of this thread.
