One of the biggest complain folks had when the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launched was the lack of higher-capacity options. It was a valid complaint considering some of these devices are advertised as having 16GB, yet only nearly half of that is inaccessible. Said devices have microSD card slots, sure, but that added space can’t be used to install apps anymore (unless you’re rooted, and even then it isn’t recommended).
It looks like AT&T is the first to want to solve this problem with Samsung’s latest handset, though, as it has announced the arrival of a 32GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S4. This edition comes at a bit of a premium of $50 more than the 16GB, meaning your total cost before tax will be $249.99. That might be steep considering the cost of flash memory these days, but if you really want it then you’ll probably pay for it.
This probably doesn’t bode well for those who opted for the 16GB Galaxy S4 for the sake of having the phone on launch day. We’ve asked AT&T about any possible trade-in opportunities for those folks. In the meantime, if you’re up for an upgrade or a new smartphone and the Galaxy S4 is on your radar you can give the 32GB option a shot starting May 10th.
