    Try doing it through iTunes if you're doing it OTA. Also try cleaning out your messages and email.

    7 gb of available space should be enough. I had 6 gb available when I updated to 8 OTA. I had 5.7 gb available for 8.1, and it worked fine. But, your mileage may vary. You can upload photos to Dropbox or Box. Then delete from your camera roll.
