Unlike this previous question, it's not related to iTunes Match (haven't ever had it on).

[iPhone][3] iTunes

Why is there such a discrepancy?

    I was the one that asked that previous question. iTunes match not on on the said iPhone, either. I suspect it is related to cached files (Streaming video, music...), but not able to find a solution or workaround yet.

I had significantly more free memory displayed on the iPhone, while iTunes considered the phone to be full.

Logging out of iCloud and back in again on the phone helped. It is some hassle (at least, I had to reconfigure iCloud and there was some waiting time), but less than the complete reset & restore from backup suggested by others.
