16GB Galaxy S4 comes with 45% of storage used out of the box

If you’re looking at picking up a Samsung Galaxy S4, then you might want to take your storage needs into consideration first. On the 16GB model, which is the most popular one at this point, users are seeing that their storage space is almost half full at unboxing. if you head into the storage space, you’ll see that a little under 9GB is actually available to use. The rest is taken up by system files, the OS, etc.. While we’re already used to seeing this, it’s always good to remember that, just because it’s advertised as 16GB storage, doesn’t mean that’s what available to the consumer.

    “Buy an external SD card.”

    Still, ALL (and I do mean all) games cannot make use of the external SD card. I am having a hard time coping with the 5,51 gigs of actual internal storage in my Optimus 2X. I constantly have to remove games to install new ones.
