    Its very possible. The bulk of storage on my phone that is being taken up is from backups. I always keep about 2 backups, its a chunk no doubt. But, it just looks like you have a lot of music, movies, pictures from the screenshot. I have been using Google Music so I don't have to store any music on my phone, and its a saver.

    Try the LazyList folder, on my SGS it was huge, like at least 500mb. I deleted it and it seemed safe. It will eventually be created again, but meanwhile you eill free some space

    Do you have Astro or have mounted it to your PC? With Astro or connected to your PC, you can go through the directories. There can be lots of stuff, like crashdump info located in /debug, that use space but don't show up.

    If you use a browser like Dolphin, it can store cache info on the "SD Card" [its description]. Try clearing cache info your browsers or any other apps that have might make use of cached files.

    You can also try out Disk Usage, a free app that actually lets you know what is taking space on your phone

    I would say back up everything to your pc and delete your whole card. I had a crazy amount of crash logs and temp folders those things add up

    So no one can explain how a 16GB nexus can have 28GB?

    He probably got the 32gb version, which was later discontinued by Google

    It's clearly a 32GB Verizon model. Readily available from any big red store. Notice the 4G icon.

    It's the caches from your apps. They don't get factored in under storage.
