    Default 638 Pics = 4.6GB??

    I have 638 pics in my camera roll and iCloud shows that my camera roll uses 4.6GB of space! My girlfriend has over 1500 pics & her camera roll is right about 2gb. I know it's not videos, the only video I have is 2 mins long. So, what do you guys think it could be? I'm jailbroken on 5.1.1

    Well for 1 thing not all pictures are created equal. A lot depends on the file type and thus the compression, and the size. Could be you are taking much larger and higher resolution picture than her.

    The iPhone 4 records its 720p HD video at around 10 megabits (Mbps) per second. That translates to about 80MB per minute...which would explain 800MB of your data.

    Hook phone to computer and check the folder and see how big it is
