Source: Samsung Lies Again: 16GB Galaxy S5 Only Has 7.86GB Usable Storage
How is this lying per say? Does it not have 16gb of storage? ROM takes that storeage or does it pull space from thin air? If this is the technicality, then even the iphone will be a "lie" since it does not offer the user the ammount of storage space that is mentioned in its spec.
why would it matter? samsung phones have an sd card slot. iPhones don't and they "lie" too.
If you crack open the phone and look at the mainboard you will find a 16gb chip. Therefore it has 16gb of internal storage. It does not say all of that is usable in and fact in many cases you will see in fine print "formatted capacity may be less"
You should buy the S5 and sue Samsung for $600,000,000,000
S5 has an 32 GB internal storage option and all of them have an expandable memory slot up to 128 GB. It has OTG too.
Problem solved. Case closed.
I'm just the messenger.
They will want to pay $1 so you'd meet somewhere in the middle. But lied? Seriously?
Time for a new delivery service.
I don't understand why this would be a big deal.
It has an internal SD card slot and memory is cheap.
Also how are they meant to advertise the memory? It has a 16GB chip, and free storage will vary depending on the ROM size (likely to vary over the phones lifetime).

Actually this does matter. But if you can't see it, you can't see it.
Not every app will run from, or store to, a microSD card. The Galaxy S4 will not allow storage of Google Play Store content to a microSD card.
While Samsung may claim it is going to make a 32GB option, that doesn't mean carriers in the US will sell it.
What i dont get is the note 3 started with 32GB...why doesnt the S5? As im guessing the note 4 will start with 32GB as well.
And this is the problem. Thankfully the Note 3 came with 32GB. I tried the S4 but the 16GB was not enough.
Please re-post this in the ios section of the forum using the title "Apple Lies Again".
Unless your just trolling and only looking to have a dig at Samsung.
So what. You put your music on the MicroSD and the Apps on the main memory. I wish i had that option with my Iphone.
But 8GB is not enough for apps plus Movies and TV show downloads, especially if they are in HD.
That's what the MicroSD card (up to 128GB) is for. Download and save it there. It is not the prison-caged Iphone for pete's sake.
This topic is a joke and it makes all apple fans look poor.
Some Apps can't be put on the SD card. The google play movies and TV shows can only be stored on the device.
Talk about lies, please stop spreading false info.
Movies and other files _are_ stored on the SD card. It's the customary practice.
Especially the ones who have no clue about Android.
Would you care to explain to me how I can move TV Shows and movies I've purchased from the Google play store to my SD card?
I'm not talking ripped DVDs. My device is not rooted and I don't want to root it.
So you're saying all Phone manufacturers lie, some just more than others?
Every phone manufacturer already has a disclaimer stating that available storage may vary due to pre-installed software.
