    Assume that I don't keep any significant personal media such as pics and videos. Does it means that Samsung S6 with internal memory of 64G can be installed with practically unlimited number of apps?
    Or only few GBs are assigned for apps installations? if so - how can I get this number before I buy the device?

    In my old HTC one S, with 16G internal memory, the space for apps and the system (together) is about 7G (the rest 9G is only for user's files) - so practically the space for apps is very limited and I frequently get "not sufficient memory..." error
    thanks

    Hi, if you have a 64gb, taking away the space for the os and all the built in apps then what's remaining can be used for whatever you like, i.e apps. Over the course of time your phone will pick up media content, which will go towards your storage, but if you constantly keep on top of them and delete them then yeah you can have as many apps downloaded that you like (depending on storage space)

    thanks, Tall Guy. yet, can you explain why my old HTC One S (4.1.1) limits the space for system+apps to 7 G, out of the internal 16G?

    Hi, your phone needs to keep space free for it to run efficiently. It also needs to leave space for app updates and future software updates.

    Bare in mind that your phone is pretty old (4.1.1) things have changed a bit for newer devices.
