16 GB micro sdhc card only using 14.9 GB

I recently bought a new sd card for my phone. I can't remember the brand, but it has 16GB space and is class 6. I formatted the card with my nokia 5230 (in which I use it). Howewer, when I look at it in File manager it says 14.9 GB free. 

 

I understand that space is needed for system files, but what bugs me is that the original 2GB sd card only used 0.3GB for this purpose. I'm losing triple the amount of space.

 

I'm interested both in hearing why this happens and if it's possible to free some of this space.

 

Thanks in advance
