Samsung Software Optimization Mulled Over to Boost Galaxy S IV Storage Space

May 17, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Smartphone customers, apart from looking at the design and form factor, also are concerned about the usable storage space that a mobile phone offers. These aspects influence them a lot before they go for the final pick.

We have seen that phone manufacturers claim a certain amount of storage space, but in reality a large amount of storage space actually gets eaten up by the operating system itself. That leaves the customer with very little.

A large number of Samsung Galaxy S IV customers have been complaining about such a worry. Despite offering 16GB of onboard storage, users were pretty much left with just 9.5GB of free space in the device. Samsung had risen to the occasion and now has come forward to offer a microSD card slot for memory expansion.

If that wasn’t enough, Samsung is taking the issue even more seriously. A Samsung spokesperson revealed to CNET UK that the company is looking at possibilities of releasing additional memory through software optimization. No wonder Samsung scores good points when it comes to customer satisfaction.

The company has not mentioned the date or exact time of release of the proposed software update for the Galaxy S IV. Perhaps, it could take a few months or maybe even a year. But then, be assured it is coming.

This is indeed an admirable step from Samsung. We just hope other phone makers too would follow suit.
