From the look nd apps installed u can see alrd. Aosp is really like those google phone look.

For tw rom, it is a norm to have around 3-5gb, depending on the phone model. So u can't say explanation is invalid.

Funny part of all...my Total Space 10.4 GB shows not 16...so all system fills goes into 10.4GB not to 16 so therefore please eliminate the clause of system reserves that space...From all I read nobody knows why this happens.

No bro the Android system files(/efs,/cache,/system,/recovery etc.) are of 5+ Gb,so if you are getting 10.4 Gb(/data) at your end then there's nothing to worry about.The whole 16 gb wont be available to you as there is only a single emmc of 16 gb and it has been partitioned into multiple partitions:Android system partitions and user available memory(/data) partition in the same way a computer's hdd is partitioned into multiple drives.
Over all you have 10.46 Gb(/data partition:available to you) + 5.54 Gb(/efs,/cache,/system etc.:not available to you) = 16 Gb

Current Phone:Galaxy Note II
Android Version:4.3
Kernel version:Stock
Rom:Stock
Recovery:Philz Touch Recovery

Current Tablet:Samsung Tab 2 P3100
Android Version:4.2.2
Rom:Stock
Kernel version:Stock
Recovery:Philz Touch Recovery

Being a noob is not an excuse to be stupid and lazy.

If you don't care about warranty, why you come here crying after you bricking your device and then asking how to claim the warranty ?

Still wondering where your storage is gone to? here is the answer:

- 895.3 MB goes to /dev partition
- another 895.3 MB goes to /mnt/asec partition
- then another 895.3 MB goes to /mnt/obb partition
- 2GB goes to /system partition

Then, here is more of the headache:
- 1.3GB goes to /cache partition

Total up to this point is about 5.9GB

The remaining 10+GB goes to /data and /storage/sdcard0 partition

How I get these numbers?

Install "Folder Mount" and check the partition sizes.

Some of these partitions are not used at all, especially the 2nd and 3rd mentioned above. My /cache partition is only filled with 23.4MB of files, and I'm not sure what they are.

I really wish there were a way to repartition those folders because they are not used anyway. Even /system partition can be reduced by some hundred MB.

Not some hundred, it's a gb. (:
