    it'll be more competitive if Samsung S4 16GB preorder cost $150. because HTC ONE is a rival at this point for S4. the high end smartphone's storage should be starting at 32gb now a days.

    i just don't understand why they are not offering the 32gb model today?

    I doubt Samsung even considers HTC a rival anymore. They have their sights on Apple.

    Just looked on the AT&T page, and the S4 16GB is going for $199, in black or white.
    That's for a 2 yr contract...you guys are lucky! In Canada, it will be $199 CAD with a 3 year contract! or $700 without. Damn "standard" 3 year Canadian contract...

    For an additional 50 bucks to go from 16GB to 32GB is not worth it. You can get a 64GB microSD card for under 50 bucks.
    Why get 32GB when you can get 80GB for the same price?

    Exactly my point!

    Any disadvantage in storing things on a SD card as opposed to the phone? My main concern is music. Chances are this will replace my ipod so I will likely have a lot of music on here. Would I be able to download songs straight the SD card from the phone?

    Apps can only be stored on the phone, I'm assuming? Regardless, 16gb would be plenty for apps.

    I was going to get the 32gb model since it is "only" $50 more, but now I'm having second thoughts. 16gb + 64gb SD should be plenty of storage..

    Because you cannot install the apps on the microSD cards anymore and I want to have more than just the minimum internal memory plus my 64GB microSD card. For $50 its worth it for me. AT&T would rather get the early suckers to bite on the 16GB version then roll out the 32GB as "Coming Soon" which is marketing speak for who the hell knows. It could me at official launch, it could be a month or two from now. They figure most people want or will buy the 16GB version due to the $199 price. Me I am not sucked into that crap and will ONLY get the 32GB version!

    So is the cost of the S4 (with 2 year contract) $199 or $250? I seem to remember them saying it would be $250, but I'm seeing it as $199. Is $199 pre-order only?

    199 is for the 16gb. Have you been reading this thread? 249 is for the 32gb which will be "coming soon"

    Because internal storage is faster, PERIOD. Not too mention, I'd rather just have 32GB if its available. I personally hate changing SD cards because its full. 32GB on the phone plus a 64GB sd card gives 96GB of storage. Sounds pretty sweet to me.

    2 GBs have worked for me for the last 2 years on my Infuse, lol. I'll stick with the 16GB, and transfer over my 2GB card. Can't imagine what you'd need with 64GB though...

    For some 16gb simply isnt enough. Its about as simple as that. At&t had no business giving us the 32gb price point and not offering it yet.

    I went to AT&T store this morning and pre-ordered the 16GB White. The rep said that I could have it delivered to the store and it would be ready for pick up on Friday 4/26. My confirm did say it would be shipped on 4/30. I will just have to wait to see who is correct. Will report out to everyone!

    US Cellular doesn't have the 32gb option either. Or launch date. But they do have a free S-View cover for preordering. Hehe.

    To each their own. I'm not going to overload my phone with apps. I will roll with an iPad if I want a bunch of apps. 16GB is fine for me.

    The One is only a rival with the S4 on tech blogs/forums. In the real world, most people have never even heard of HTC, let alone the One. Similarly, most people are fine with 16GB (particularly if they find out they can get another 32 or 64GB on an SD card for $25 or $50).

    just spoke to at&t and they said the 32gb model will probably not be available at launch. yet they have the $249 price tag in their systems already. if true i guess ill hold off upgrading. what a mess. why bother giving us prices but not having it available?
