Only 23 GB available to the user

Unable to extend the usable memory in Samsung Galaxy S6 may prove to be a bigger problem than we thought. It has been revealed that for a model with 32 GB of flash memory, only 23 GB will be available to the user and the rest will be for the operating system and applications.

On each smartphone part of the memory is occupied by the operating system and programs installed by the manufacturer, so it is no secret that only a part of it is available to the user. For models that have a slot for a microSD card, this is not a problem, as it is very easy to expand it.

Much worse is the memory-degrading models, which include Samsung's new products, namely the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Changing the housing design caused not only the lack of battery replacement, but also the resignation of the microSD card slot.

For this reason, in a 32-gigabyte version of the hardware, only 23 GB is available for the user. For 64 GB and 128 GB, the smartphone holder will be 55 GB and 119 GB, respectively. Of course, it should be borne in mind that these parameters may vary slightly from market to operator.
