Back when it got discovered that Galaxy S4 had around half the usable storage advertised due to laundry list of features it comes with, Samsung responded users’ concerns by advising them to take advantage of microSD slot bundled with every S4 device. However, that’s not the answer users and prospective buyers are looking for and with the rise bloatware-free version of Galaxy S4, it seems like the Korean conglomerate is seriously looking into the matter.
According to a statement released by CNET UK, Samsung has taken notice of the issue and aims to better understand users’ needs to take appropriate measures to fix them. Also, Samsung pointed towards the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimization The way we understand it, it looks like the Galaxy maker is hinting towards a future software update that could slim down unnecessary space taken by some Galaxy S4′s bundled software features.
Samsung wrapped up its statement by saying this:
Samsung is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their needs as part of our innovation process.
While the expandable memory is ideal for storing data, it can’t be used for running apps. If however it can be used for installing data hungry apps – which are mostly games – it wouldn’t even matter how much space is taken by factory installed apps by manufacturers and would indeed be quite a big innovation. For now, let’s see to what an extent Samsung manages to fix storage problem when it rolls out these much-needed “software optimizations”. Are you satisfied with Galaxy S4’s current usable storage?
