The nominal internal memory of the X500M Smart Phone is 512MB, but the actual visible capacity is 112MB. What’s the cause?

The end-users will find that only 112MB of 512MB is available as they check the internal memory of the Android phones through Task Manager. This confuses a lot of users.As a matter of fact, one of the causes is that Android operating system itself occupies some memory space. Besides, the preset software and applications also occupy some used memory space, and this varies according to the actual situations. That’s the cause of inconsistency between the RAM and its nominal memory.
