Exactly!
BTW, with the new 16GB/12.5GB Nexus 5 which T-Mobile sent to replace the almost useless LG Optimus F3:

I'm done installing the necessary apps into the internal memory:

It seems, after the OS was installed, there was roughly 12.55GB of the original 16GB, so the OS took up about 3.5GB.
The pre-installed apps took up another few hundred MB such that the Android 4.4.2 phone started with about 12.28GB:

Then, after I installed these basic smartphone apps:

The phone was left with about 10.72GB of available space:

So, just "my" list of basic apps alone, seem to take up (roughly) about 2GB of storage space (this includes offline road maps for California, which are a necessity, IMHO, for when you really need it when there is no cell signal or your data plan is low).
When I plug in that 12.5GB Nexus 5 into Linux, it shows "free space" of about 11.5GB, which is actually 1GB too high.
I'm not sure why.

I don't see those specs of available user memory on the lG site.
I only see the 4GB of internal memory for the P769: http://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-P769-optimus-l9 -> technical specifications
Even this LG pdf doesn't seem to mention the available user memory: http://www.lg.com/us/support/products/documents/SpecSheet_LG_Optimus%20L9.pdf
Memory: up to 4 GB Internal (external microSD slot is expandable up to 32 GB) 4
Do you have a better source?

Hmm. Is the whole deal the difference between suffix "_n" and suffix "_b" ? That would be almost *too* easy :-) . Cheers, -- tlvp

Who knows what the purpose or intent of these variations are. As an aside, notice how "_d", "_q", & "_s" were quite odd results, but "_b" was the best.

Bravo! There's rhyme and reason in their madness :-) .

Yup, "_b" for "best". And "_t" stands for "thumbnail", eh? Cheers, -- tlvp

Maybe the difference between "Gigabyte" meaning 10^9 or 2^30.
11.5 * 2^30 = 12.3 * 10^9 11.6 * 2^30 = 12.5 * 10^9
