Samsung reacts on Storage accusations of the Galaxy S4
In the last few days there were accusations towards Samsung bout the internal storage capacity of the 16 GB version of the Galaxy S4.
It seems that when you have a 16GB model the system takes up almost 7 GB which means there is only 9 GB left. The 7 GB is taken up by Touchwizz and other BLOATware that comes with the phone.
This is issue about the little memory that is left over spread like fire over the internet, and Samsung comes with a response to this issue. The official statement says:
“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.”
Basicly Samsung says go get a Micro SD, but since Jelly Bean the support for Apps to SD is no longer there. Did Samsung think about that ??!! The galaxy S4 is getting a lot more heat these days as you can read here.
