It's not difficult, doesn't require root (just enter df into Terminal Emulator) - but the actual numbers will vary by region due to radio types.

For a point of reference - just a sneak peek for the idea iow - here's what my LTEvo looks like, 16 GB + 64 GB sd card, note that my internal sd is 9.9 GB but the tool displays it as 9. Taking that into account, the screenshot provided accounts for 15 of the 16 GB built-in, and cannot show the bootloader or recovery because they're below the operating system.


TL/DR -

Of the 16 GB, you have to allocate for the bootloader, recovery, radio firmware, and each Android filesystem - nothing comes without consuming storage.


Picture is NOT from an SGS4.
Here's the snapshot:


EDIT: This is from a SGS4. As you can see, this only has 7,65GB total storage. I don't know if that's because this is a demo-phone or what :S
