    Samsung's Response to Limited Storage on Galaxy S4 is a Reminder of the microSD Slot


    Samsung recently responded to some of the complaints on the web regarding the low amount of storage available on the 16GB Galaxy S4. In case you missed the story previously, the 16GB SGS4 only comes with about 9GB of useable space due to all the software and the OS taking up 46% of the storage. Here is Samsung's response on the issue,

    “For the Galaxy S4 16 GB model, approximately 6.85 GB occupies the system part of internal memory, which is 1 GB bigger than that of the Galaxy S3, in order to provide a high resolution display and more powerful features to our consumers. To offer the ultimate mobile experience to our users, Samsung provides a microSD slot on Galaxy S4 for extension of memory.”
    Well... that was worded in a very polite way, but is still pretty cheeky of them. Ultimately, their point is perfectly valid and is probably not that big of a deal. Alternatively, one could just purchase the 32GB version of the device instead. What do you guys think? Is this something Samsung should deal with, or is it just the price we pay for all the whiz-bang features they included in the new device?

    I'm thinking the extra 50 bucks for the 32GB version will be worth it. :thumbup:

    The DNA is 16GB, but there is roughly 11GB available for user. That extra 2GB is a lot and DNA has same resolution display. So that means it is all the bells and whistles that many people will likely not use that is taking away space. Nice there is an sd slot, but they should not advertise it as 16GB when it is clearly not in the real world. Just my opinion. I will probably waitfor 32GB myself . . .
