    7.49GB - 7.38GB = 112.64MB (not 70MB).

    Did you format the card in the phone, or on a PC/Mac? Note that the card was probably originally formatted by the card manufacturer, and not the software/application running in the phone (or on your PC or Mac). I.e., they may have been formatted with different defaults for the file system, leading to different results in available space. I don't also know very well how Flash memory operates, but it could also be the case that the formatting process detectes bad memory blocks which it disables/excludes from use during the formatting.

    Then you were offered some settings, like File System, Allocation unit size. They matter.
    By the way: note that your phone can also format the memory card.
