    There is about 15 GB to 18 GB free on the 3 DEMO UNITS at Best Buy out of 32 GB total.

    Anyone know what the actual available storage will be?

    Wow, that's amazing. So the OS and pre-installed apps are taking up 14-16 GB of internal memory?

    Demo units usually have demo software so they don't just sit on one screen all day which could be taking up more space.

    That would be awful too. Samsung 16gb devices usually have 11gb free so should be at least 25gb with a 32gb. That is what the 32gb S4 and Note 3 have.

    Most of the demo video stuff they put on it is probably 2k and that takes up a ton of storage space.

    These are from demo Note 4 at Best Buy. I clicked on the miscellaneous files to get the 2nd screen. Note how much 'demo' and 'retail' content.

    I'm not aware of retail media being on an unopened phone to be sold to the consumer

    Presumably none of the retail / self-demonstrating content would be on a clean new phone.

    I have tested a LOT of store demo devices in the years and free device storage is the first thing I look at. That is horrible and I can not rationalize any demo bloat that would consume that much space. It is perverted bad. Most phones and tablets lose less than 1GB due to demo bloat.

    Something not conventionally adding up. Samsung went insane with bloat this time? If so, Samsung can take the N4 and stick it somewhere real deep and sideways. Will keeps using my S4 and maybe find a cheap slightly used Note 3 next month.

    The only thing we can HOPE is there is a LOT of Qhd res video on the demo units. That really is the only thing that makes sense.

    Please keep in mind L will take about 20% more space due to how it stores parts of apps.
