Why is my storage full?

My phone keeps saying it's almost at full storage. It says that my photos and videos use 9.2gb but I only have 58 photos and 47 short videos. I have erased everything from the delete file also. What can I do?

It's the videos, they take up a HUGE amount of space, particularly with the quality that the camera provides. You may want to consider storing some of them elsewhere to free up some memory. To store that many on an iPhone you'd probably want to get one with larger storage capacity.

One thing I've done is signed up for Flickr and you get something like 1000GB for free .I have my pics/videos set to sync up Wi-Fi. After they sync you can delete them from your device to free up memory / space. Also, if you don't need to keep / save your text message threads make sure to clear them out. Pics/Videos in your message threads can take up a TON of space. I just helped a friend clear out 3.9GBs of message threads. Most were embedded with pics/videos etc. Good luck.
