What is taking up space in the internal storage part of my phone?

According to my phone I have 14.98 GB of internal storage and as of right now only 362 MB is being used for apps, however it says it only has 613 MB available to use. What is taking up all of that space?

Your phone's internal storage is where your photos, videos, emails, text messages, and application data is stored. Pictures and videos can take up a lot of storage space; if you have hundreds of pictures and hours' worth of videos, you may want to back them up onto your computer or somewhere else so you can delete them and free up more of your internal storage. If you have hundreds of emails and text messages, you may want to delete those from your phone, as well, since they can take up a lot of internal space.
