Just wondering how much space Windows 8.1 uses on the phone?

My phone is Windows 8.1 Update 2. Storage Sense shows that the System is using 3.56 GB.

EDIT: Note that the Maps are taking almost 48 meg. They are part of the system too, I believe.

Thanks Rick. An 8 GB phone is almost useless then.

Yes, I think that I would want to go bigger, especially if you plan on storing photos, videos or music. Almost half of your hard drive would be used just by Windows.

Well, you can add micro SD card with extra 64 GB or so... Smile
Windows Phone 8.1 will allow you to store all your files there and even to install some apps there.

I was just coming back to edit my post and mention an SD card but you beat me to it. :)

It's true that my Lumia 830 with 16 GB internal memory plus 64 GB microSD card gives much more freedom to what I can install on my phone. I use internal memory for all the apps and SD card for all the media and documents. Works perfect.
