It's always appreciated when a company actually pays attention to the concerns of its customers. Samsung's first response to user complaints regarding the small amount of storage space available on the Galaxy S4 was practical but a bit lackluster. Being reminded that we can always just add more storage via the microSD slot basically felt like Samsung was "passing the buck." However, it looks like Samsung still listened to these complaints and were actually working to address them in a less passive aggressive manor. Apparently they are trying to develop "further optimizations" for all the Samsung software on their device to help free up more storage space. Here's a quote with their reply,
The other option (if you are on AT&T or T-Mobile) is to get the new $650 dollar Nexus-style Pure Android SGS4 GE. Of course, that is an expensive solution as well. Regardless, at least Samsung is working on alternatives. What do you guys think of this second response?"As one of the most advanced smartphones on the market, the Samsung Galaxy S4 uses part of its internal memory to bring our customers its innovative and unique features. We appreciate this issue being raised and we will improve our communications. Also, we are reviewing the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimisation. Samsung is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their needs as part of our innovation process."
