16GB Samsung Galaxy S4 Only Has 9GB Of Available Storage
The Samsung Galaxy S4 started shipping to customers who preordered over this past weekend. If you ordered the 16GB model, don’t expect to store a bunch of stuff. Geek.com recently discovered that only 8.82GB of memory is available when you take the S4 out of its box.
That means 45% of the S4’s non-board storage is reserved for the Android OS and preinstalled apps you can’t remove. Luckily, you can insert an SD card slot for additional storage.
