This isn’t the first time a handset has came under fire for how much user space is actually available to use from the advertised 16GB of storage, in fact Microsoft’s Surface RT has also came under fire. The BBC consumer rights show, Watchdog doesn’t seem to care about the others as it will be focusing on the Galaxy S4 on next weeks show, this is due to the fact that almost half of the claimed 16Gb of storage you get on the S4 is used up already with Samsung’s own software and apps. Samsung counter this argument by explaining that the S4 features expandle memory via micro-SD up to 64GB, but what about the cost of these SD cards and the fact that some apps actually only like system memory? We have included a video below were host Ann Robinson announces the investigation at the end of this weeks show quoting¬†“It [Samsung] claims that its brand new Galaxy phone has an extra-large memory, but what did it forget to mention?” If you want to watch the show then it will Air on Wednesday 15th at 8PM UK time.

Own the Galaxy S4? What do you think about the OS leaving you with only 9.5GB?
