Samsung to look again at storage on Galaxy S4

After the furore over actual storage on the Samsung Galaxy S4, it looks like the Korean giant is going to do something about it.

The company was featured on the BBC's Watchdog programme this week, with the issue of residual storage (after Samsung's own software and apps have been added to the phone) being the issue. If you opt for 16GB of storage, you will have less than half of that available.

Samsung took note, saying it will try to squeeze its myriad features into a smaller space, freeing up more memory for apps and general storage. 'We appreciate this issue being raised and we will improve our communications,' a Samsung spokesperson told CNET UK. 'Also, we are reviewing the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimisation. Samsung is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their needs as part of our innovation process.'

In the past, Samsung has said it needed the space for 'more powerful features', which you didn't have much of a choice about if you bought the phone. However, with the upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition, which lacks many of the Samsung add-ons, there might soon be an option for the extra storage without Samsung's intervention.

Of course, you can always pick up a phone with extra storage. But really, why should you?
