    Hi friends, my OP5 is showing full storage. Images videos and other documents combined have occupied 20GB. Apps might have used around 20 GB. But OP is showing others as 92 GB. Can you help.me understand what could be possible reason?
    also does OS updates eat space? if yes how to clear update files?

    13. Excessive Others storage (oem_logs or Face Unlock Debug)

    Open Dialer>Dial *#800#>oneplus logkit>Uncheck Save log>Delete History log>Reboot.

    thanks :) I have been able to clear around 40 GB of space. Is it possible to free up more space?

    Possibly, everything else in others is whatever doesn't fit into the other categories displayed. You can try searching through the file manager manually or download an app like SDMaid to help you search out the rest.

    I always update my OS. so does clearing log also clear downloaded update files? if not then how can I clear it?

    They should be cleared out automatically after the update completes but if you want to double check and make sure, go to the file manager, enable show hidden files and navigate to the .Ota folder and delete whatever's inside if it's not empty.

    found oem_logs using around 36GB space does deleting that folder impact the phone performance and other data saved phone?
    should I delete it?

    No you're fine to go ahead and delete the log files that won't have any negative effects.
