I did yesterday full factory reset with usb storage format, and its still same.
As I am aware there are only two option for SGS2- 16gb and 32gb. Why mine is 12gb?
It's not just yours. The phone does have 16GB.
11.50GB is available for you to use for whatever media, music, movies, documents etc.
1.85GB - is ROM, so 1.85GB is available to install apps - more than enough! Most phones have 1GB or less.
16GB-13.75GB=2.75GB which is used for the Android OS and Touchwiz UI.
It's a bit of a marketing thing, just so they can say it's got 16GB. Suppose there's up to 32GB SD card to increase storage.
