I have 3.4gb of photos, 3gb of apps, and 6gb of OTHER.

I don't know what the OTHER is. It has never been higher than 1GB before, usually its just notes and stuff yeah?

I have no music and videos on my iPhone anymore because they wont fit anyway.

How can I see what is contributing to the 6GB of OTHER?

Do a hard reset, then sync with iTunes. Mine glitched like this on my 16gb 4s before and did the same thing and this was the only way I could make it go away. I had to sync a couple of times. Apparently the problem is where random little things get saved - like when YouTube videos get buffered and memory for Facebook etc etc. If that doesn't work try backing up and then restoring your phone - this should get rid of all the bugs.

Hope this helps 😊

Do I lose apps and photos from my iPhone if I reset it?

What happens when I switch it on again? Do I even have to reset the time and date and stuff?

Do you have any apps like iTube or Downloads? They let you download stuff from the internet into the app, but on storage the downloaded material it shows up as 'other'. Basically its probably all your hidden away porn thats using up memory 😜

No. Back your phone up first, either using iTunes or the iCloud. That way you'll still keep contacts and messages too. It will basically just rewrite your phone for you and get rid of all the junk on it.
