Mine's about half-full with music, the photos are a very small sliver. If I take videos, those will top it out eventually, but once I've taken them I transfer them to my computer and delete them. I have no reason to keep vids on the phone. I've got (counts) four apps, I think there's more space taken up by the photos.
