U can download the white paper for a detailed info.
And no not all android phones have such limitation.it's up to the manufacturer.
AnonD-56684, 12 Apr 2013The way sony puts it - 8 gb total flash storage. - 5.6 gb is "free" for the user.u... moreIf what you are saying comes out to be true does that mean this will be first Sony android phone to come out without limitation storage for app installation ? and are those official words of Sony ?

One more thing is this limit for App storage in only Sony phones or every android ? Cheers

But there are many office apps available in Google Play Store to download. Kingsoft office is available for free with editing capability for words, excel and presentation files. (pdf editor? since when MS office can edit pdf? You mean ppt?). Usually Sony provides Officesuite app preinstalled, but you need to download the pro version to get editing features. It's not free in Play Store but.... google search to get it fr##

No point confusing over what's not understandable

I have never seen any android running device mentioning "system storage" capacity when settings>storage has been clicked.
It always started with either "Phone memory" or "Internal storage".
bytheway, I really wish if your guess comes true :)
AnonD-43284, 12 Apr 2013Yes, someone please clear this thing outThe way sony puts it -
8 gb total flash storage.
- 5.6 gb is "free" for the user.u can install apps or store ur media content in this area.previously this area was also divided into two parts.one for app storage only and one for media contents only.now it's unified.so u can store whatever u want in it now which gives u more room to install apps as opposed to earlier sony devices that had a fixed 2 gb allocation for app storage.
- the remaining area beside that 5.6 gb is for the system and is locked.it is where the OS is installed(the preinstalled OS itself takes about 1.2 gb) as well as the preloaded sony specific and other popular apps/bloatware (which vary from region to region).some area is also free in this locked partition but not accessible to the user.it is meant for updates(since updates usually take more space than original).
AnonD-78264, 12 Apr 2013Sorry for the link !
Secondly while going through the white-paper earlier, I thought the same... moreIt's not written in the language that i understand but i am guessing that the 1.5 gb of partition that u r talking about is the "system storage" - the space where the Android OS is preinstalled.this part is locked for the user.the 5.6 gb partition is a separate thing for storing ur installed apps or media.
I don't think white paper can go wrong.we'll find out soon enough about that.

Secondly while going through the white-paper earlier, I thought the same as you.
But that video made me little confused.
You should check Ed007.
