    I got mine today, there is not a big difference between this one and my S3. Except the S3 is on Sprint with crappie service and the S4 is on Verizon.

    SD cards are slow and unreliable. You have to root to install an app on them. Google wants nothing to do with sd cards...that should tell you something.
    I would hope Verizon comes out with a 32 GB version but they would prefer you use as much data as possible.

    I just ordered the 16GB S4 for my wife. Really was hoping to see the 32GB available for purchase this morning but no dice. I can't wait any longer... if I do I might get an HTC Thunderbolt thrown at me

    Just called 7 different Verizon stores and they only have the 16GB for sale.
    One Verizon counter monkey said, just add a 16GB SD card and it's the same as a 32GB model.
    S H I T, I'm going to have get me one of those special 16GB SD Cards.

    I have the 32GB SG3, and honestly- it does matter. While I still have 10GB free, it also means I have never had to juggle or hassle with apps or anything else.

    More then once, I can't believe that they even hire these morons.
    After putting just a few apps on the 16GB S4 there is only about 8.5 GB of space left.

    So I just got a call from Verizon Coprorate in response to the email I sent them about all these mixed messages we're hearing about 32gb versions... Bad news. The nice gal on the phone told me that the only way they'll be carrying the 32gb version is if they get slammed with requests for it, and even then it won't be for another month or two at the bare minimum. And it sounded like the "month or two" was if we were all gathered outside Verizon HQ with torches and pitchforks.

    I'm chained to Verizon on a family plan, so it looks like I won't be getting my first smartphone after all.

    A demonstration outside VZW could be tough to organize. But if 50 contact corporate that's better than zero. It only takes a few minutes to send the email from the VZW leadership page.

    I forget her name, I didn't see any need to remember it at the time.

    But by all means, please contact them yourself, the more people that do, the better chances we have of getting the 32gb version.

    A rep told me the stock response for ANY question about the S4 storage, or 32GB models = "We do not have any details on a 32GB model, but you can add up to 64GB more storage with a micro sd card". They are playing a semantics game to mislead customers, but some slip up and specifically mention installing apps to the sd card. That is NOT in their script and they are supposed to as general as possible by following the script. This is essentially a corporate sanctioned lie, since they DO no better, but chose not to stock a 32GB version and mislead customers about the 16GB model.

    I've contacted Verizon Corporate a few times. Lately, I don't answer when they call. They keep calling everyday for two or three days. Then I get a system message (SMS) asking me to call the corporate rep. When I don't answer, I get an email. They are very persistent when you contact corporate with a question or comment.

    I picked up the 16G model and just threw the 32G SD card from my old phone into it. All my music videos and such were already there, so I didn't much care about the exact size of the phones storage. I was already depending on the SD card for the majority of my storage, The 16G on the phone is just a bonus for me. When looking at it from the angle of the SD card as my primary, the phones storage isn't as important.
    I'm not saying I wouldn't like the larger internal storage; however, I've had screen and water damage issues with other phones, and it's always nice to just pull out the SD card and move on, never having to worry if the phone will fire up and let me get my data from it.
