Courtesy of tronnei: Do an iTunes backup, then restore the phone using that backup.

From Cult Of Mac: [www.cultofmac.com]
"The “other” section tends to be full of Safari bookmarks, text-message attachments and calendar entries. There are two main ways to remove this data from your iOS device. The best method is to wipe your device. Back up up your iPhone on iTunes first, then go to Settings > General > Reset and choose Erase All Content. Then connect your iOS device to iTunes and restore from backup."

Also read from another source it contains cache and rogue pref files.

I constantly have the same problem. Poor form on Apple not allowing people to manage this.

I suppose the key issue is:
-Does dealing with so many files slow down your phone, or
-Does having those files close by without having to regenerate them or fetch them out of iCloud, actually speed up your phone?

It does seem that wiping the phone and restoring it from a backup, speeds things up -- but I've never done a test, it could be just placebo effect.

Attempt to rent a movie that is too large for your storage - it'll wipe the other.

One wierd trick - Apple hates it!

That's a neat trick if it works.

( I have 50GB of space so I can't try it to prove it )

I've attempted that in the past. It did work, but it did not free up as much space as the backup/wipe/restore.

Absolutely.
