    Have had a 3GS and an ipad. Got a (used) iphone4. My music playlist is 9GB.

    First odd item is that (both running 4.1) the 3GS storage capacity is listed as 14.3GB while this iphone4 lists capacity @ 14.01? Is that normal? I tried activating the iphone4 first using the itunes backup from the 3GS and then after a full wipe activating it as a new phone. Both times were identical @ 14.01 capacity.

    Second even more odd thing: the 9GB playlist I mentioned. That is its size in itunes and on the 3GS. When I loaded it to my ipad (running 4.2.1) it took 9.1GB... no big deal. But when I synced with the iphone4 it suddenly swelled to 9.6GB???

    Anyone have any idea what is going on and how to get back that nearly a GB (well, .9GB) between the 3GS and the iphone4???

    Well, the firmware with retina display sized elements actually takes a lot more space that the 320x480 firmware. So it makes sense that you'd have slightly less available disk space because of this.

    Sure, I buy that.

    What is still odd is that the same exact playlist with the same exact songs that takes 9GB on the 3GS ends up taking 9.6GB on the iphone4 ???

    Yes. Everything (as far as I can tell) is identical between the 3GS and the iPhone4.
