    "Other" means the rest of the Data on your phone which is not a Video, Audio or some Images.

    This data could be application data, any files that you may have downloaded from the internet, The Temp data, Thumbnail Cache yadda yadda yadda.

    It's basically anything else on your storage other than the Three i mentioned earlier

    in other's folders you can find log files. those files take a lot of memory. around 25 MB per file and there are a lot. search for the log files and delete all of them except the recent one.

    Could be any kind of logging or files that does not get qualified as images, audio, video or documents.

    For example: whatsapp backs up a large part of its contents at 2pm on your phone clock. And usually it keeps a few days' copies. And depending on the amt of whatsapp messages that you have not cleaned up, each day's log file could be several MBs big.

    This is just one example. Similar to this there could be many other applications that store all kind of data - which probably is useless for you.

    Before being the proud owner of a 128 GB beast :D, I had space issues and I used Clean Master (from Cheetah mobile). It was a pretty intrusive app but did a very nice job of cleaning up garbage data lying everywhere on the phone. Just for info.
