    Default Usable space?

    I forgot to check how much storage was available to the user when I was at Best Buy yesterday. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks.

    That was because it had all the demo stuff on it.

    Galaxy S5 actually offers 10GB of space...not 8GB (Better news)

    Sprint S4 with kit Kat is using exactly 6.26gb now. Wish they would free up some space since I will probably get the 16gb.

    Its 10GB for the consumer units, and about 6GB for the demo units at the stores because of their own software

    Guess I'll buy a sd card. Why doesn't the S5 have 32gb if there's so much memory getting tied up? 16gb is really low for a "flag ship phone."

    Okay that's cool. I assume that's before carrier bloat though. Does anyone know when the 32GB will be available?

    Why doesn't Samsung release the S5 with 32 gb? It is after all their 2014 flagship cellphone. For a flagship phone... 16 gb is on the low end. I currently have a Nexus 4 and it too has 16gb. I'm nowhere near running low on memory, but the Nexus line doesn't have manufacturer and carrier bloatware. I use cloud storage and I will pick up an sd card when my S5 arrives. I'm just curious to know why Samsung doesn't release a 32 gb version. Also... I was surprised that the S5 doesn't have 3 gb of RAM. However... I am more than happy to have pre-ordered this phone.

    Agree. The 16GB phones need to go away.

    Why? The average person/user may not need more than the 16 gb version. What may work for you may not be the best option for others.
