Usually, the reason why there is less phone memory is because of lots of photos or videos or music files stored on the device. Apps, especially the pre-installed apps should not take that much memory.

You should go to "Settings > Storage" and have a look at the device memory overview to see which kind of files are causing the memory consumption. Also apps are listed here.

If the memory consumption is caused by audio or video files or photos, you have to delete some of them to free your memory. Of course, you should save them on your computer first.

Have you had a look at the overview at "Settings > Storage". This overview should show where your memory has gone..

If you want you can post the results here, then I can tell you something about that.

Another reason could be that the applications have required to much memory in their cache. For example, you can empty the Google Maps cache. If you are storing offline cards (which actually is a wonderful function), this can consume lots of memory.
