Default [Q] Internal memory

Xperia Z1 have 16GB internal memory, but in settings says that mine have only almost 12GB. Why is that? I know that it wouldn't have 16GB, but at least 14GB. And i don't believe android uses 4GB...

The rest of it is used for system and specially GPU. It's a know fact from day one of Android. There is no device that eat less. More power, more they need, less power less they eat. Simply as that.

At the moment I don't know specifically that they are used for so maybe an expert can give you a better explanation.
