    The phone is telling you about the entire storage, while the PC only sees the "/sdcard" partition.

    The difference is that the 8GB includes the partitions used by your operating system, radio firmware, system cache etc. These take up more than half of the very limited storage your phone has. The PC is just seeing the space that's available for user files (which makes sense as there's nothing it can do with the rest).
