The Samsung Galaxy S4 at the moment may be the handset everybody and his brother wants. This is not surprising at all because being the flagship device of the Korean smartphone and tablet manufacturer, the handset comes with an impeccable resume of fire-breathing components under the hood. Similar to its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S IV is also expected to become a big hit in the shelves and given its more powerful hardware and the features that come along with it, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the sales figures of the Samsung superphone surpass those of its predecessor’s.
However, there is no such thing as a perfect smartphone and we entirely agree with that. Even the venerable Samsung Galaxy S4 has its flaws and the handset, particularly its 16GB variant, has recently been criticized for only coming with just nearly half of its internal storage available for user content. This is because a large chunk of the handset’s onboard storage is taken up mostly by its operating system and the apps and features that came along with it – what others would lovingly call as bloatware. Of course, Samsung argued that the handset has a microSD slot for memory expansion but nothing beats the faster internal storage of the Samsung Galaxy S IV for that matter.
AT&T though has plans of rectifying that situation and the carrier has confirmed a couple of days ago that it will soon be releasing a variant of the Samsung flagship with 32GB of onboard storage. Back when the announcement was made, AT&T said that the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S4 will make it to the shelves by May 10 and the wireless provider has indeed kept its promise for that matter.
As it stands, the 32GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has already landed on the shelves of AT&T so those who want a little more breathing room in terms of storage capacity on the handset can now get their hands on one of these babies. The 32GB Samsung Galaxy S4 can be had for $249.99 and those taking advantage of this offer will be required to sign a new two-year service agreement with Ma Bell as customary. A little caveat though – only the Black Mist version of the Samsung Galaxy S IV is available in this larger storage capacity format. The original 16GB Galaxy S4 is available for a reduced price at select online retailers.
Despite the criticism it got, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is still one powerful handset. It has its circuitry built around a Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 chipset which in turn brings into play a quad-core 1.9 GHz Krait 300 processor and a whopping 2GB of RAM. These two components work hand in hand in guaranteeing that the operation of the Samsung Galaxy S IV will always be snappy and stutter-free. The handset can now be had in a 16GB and a 32GB variant but this can still be expanded using the handset’s microSD card slot. The Samsung Galaxy S IV sports a 5.0-inch SuperAMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels while its dual-shooter configuration boasts of a main 13MP shooter at its rear panel and a 2MP video call and self-portrait snapper at its front bezel.
