New iPhone 7+ already with "other" space taken ?

  oceansatori 11:15 15 Mar 2018

I have just purchased a new (refurbished) iPhone 7plus 256gb direct from Apple. Have set-up as new phone, not from a backup. I find it disturbing that 1.23gb of yellow "other" space is taken before any usage whatsoever. Is this normal??

Not sure of iPhone 7 but on my 6s 5.5 gig is used for system. To see details go to Settings, General, iPhone storage then scroll down to the bottom - you can see if there are any apps you might not need, but the iPhone needs space for its own software, a bit like Windows or other basics on a PC
