Perhaps the memory is occupied by the cache of browsers, instant messengers and other applications.

There are cleaning applications, for example, Google Files (can be downloaded from the Play Market), which do a good job of cleaning up garbage on a smartphone.

Applications often make a cache on disk that needs to be cleaned up periodically. For example, my Telegram cache was already 8 gigabytes. And now Chrome has a cache of more than a gigabyte.

To clean it, go to the Applications item, there select any, let the same Chrome or Telegram, there select the Storage. Then click Clear Cache.
