My understanding of the storage is as follows
Phone Storage = data storage for your apps
internal storage = pictures, music, etc
sdcard = pictures, music, and etc
Note Phone storage can be broken into two categories ROM (Read Only) and RAM (Random Access) ROM would be reserved for /system memory. This includes all apps that came with the phone, While Random Access (Read or Write) is reserved for /data memory. Program settings, databases, libraries, etc.
Internal memory is usually RAM and up to 32 gigs in size where as SDCARD can be supported for higher RAM such as 64 gigs.
Hope that helps
