Samsung replies to Galaxy S4 limited storage accusations, says go get a microSD card
posted by Victor H. / May 03, 2013, 7:01 AM
The issue with little available memory on the Galaxy S4 spread out quickly, and now Samsung has felt the need for an official reply, but you are not going to like it. Basically, the company confirms that nearly 7GB of the internal storage are occupied and tells you to go and get a microSD card if you want more.
And while that’s an interesting suggestion - you can actually augment the internal storage by as much as 64GB cards - Samsung might want to also rethink the size of their skin as not everyone will by happy with this kind of an answer.

Then you need to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S5 to be released, then the Galaxy S4's price will be reduced! :)

Well, proved with the S3 price adjustment. S3 is still good for most people day to day use. S4 is really for early adopters and they do have to pay more and suffer more as well. Note 2 price has also been adjusted so I think best buy for Samsung device would be Note 2.

Well, at least in the GPU the Snapdragon 600 is more powerful. And Adreno 320 is the only mobile GPU that supports OpenGL 3.0, all others only support OpengGL 2.1. It also supports OpenCL 1.2 while others only support 1.1 So at least in GPU Qualcomm has the advantage both in power and in features.

Really, is that why the 1.9 S600 vs E5410 pure A15 vs half A15 and A9 still lost by 300 points! Now just imagine the E5410 Exynos was clocked at 1.9, scores would reach 33000. You're saying S600 is better than a pure A15, what a joke, please do some research, befor posting™

If the Snapdragon 600 was better the South Korean S4 would of been a Snapdragon 600 not an Exynos 5. South Korea always gets the best version of a Samsung phone, simple as that. Also the Exynos 5 GPU is more powerful than adreno 320. People going off the 3dmark benchmark must also believe the note 2 has the worst gpu in any smartphone because it gets 9fps. Even though it between adreno 220 and adreno 320.

The only thing that breaks on the SGS4 and on previous generations is the GLASS display itself. That is because Gorilla Glass 2-3 have been extremely disappointing and somehow more fragile than the original Gorilla Glass. Samsung does NOT make Gorilla Glass, however they are making a bendable display that will resolve that issue. If you would stop trolling for a second and actually watch any drop test videos of the SGS3/SGS4, you will see that the display ONLY breaks when it's dropped face first or on the corners of the display itself. It barely even gets a scratch when it's dropped any other way, unlike the iPhone and other devices that use "premium" materials in their design.

Samsung is getting greedy and as arrogant as Apple, this reminds me of the "You are holding it wrong".
