Samsung acts on Galaxy S4 storage issues

After much anger and even a mention on the BBC's Watchdog programme, Samsung promised to look again at the storage issues regarding its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone. A new update to the phone could be its first response.

According to the SamMobile site, the new software update deals with an initial batch of gripes and issues with the phone. The main one is that storage problem, with the 16GB variant of the Galaxy S4 offering just 9.15GB of user accessible memory to install apps currently. The new update addresses this issue by allowing you to move apps to SD card and increasing the available storage to 9.23GB. Not the perfect solution, but a decent first attempt.

Other improvements are also coming for the camera, as well as an option to shoot HDR video, a semi-transparent status bar, new icons in settings and an option to 'increase legibility' on the display.

Right now, Samsung has only rolled out the new software update in Germany, but other countries, including the UK, should follow. Look out for a notification soon.
